Mary Goodwin

#35371, b. before 1710

Peace after the storm - The vibrant blue green colours of the sky and sea make this window most attractive. The swooping sea gulls in the left panel, the waves lapping against the boat, and the curled sails blowing, give the scene movement. The moment is captured just as Jesus says “peace be still” to the raging storm. The Lord has been asleep in the boat. As the waves started to sink it, the disciples wake Him in fear. At His words the wind ceases, and there is a great calm.

The choice to portray this particular miracle, may be because it shows Jesus is Lord also over nature. It certainly frightened the disciples into asking each other “who is this that even the wind and sea obey him?”

This is a window in the church where Ellis and Mary were married. The explanation comes from http://ststephensnorwich.org/history, where more information on the history of the church can be found.
