The Good Shepherd

This window, made in the studio of R S Exton & Co, Brisbane in 1953 is the work of Brisbane artist, William Bustard.

The inscription reads:

I am the Good Shepherd.
The Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.
In loving memory of Peter Tait 1873 – 1951
From his wife and children

The window was unveiled and dedicated by the Minister, the Revd Dr Norman Webster, on Sunday 23rd August 1953. It is the gift of Peter Tait’s widow, daughter and two sons. The theme is based on our Lord’s words in St John’s Gospel, “I am the Good Shepherd; the Good Shepherd giveth His life for the sheep.”

The family felt that as Mr Tait was engaged most of his life in the pastoral industry, it was fitting that the religious message of that calling should be embodied in the window.
