There is an old hymn we still sing today which starts with the lyrics, “Savior, like a shepherd lead us…” Do you ever think of Jesus as a shepherd and yourself as a sheep? All of our lessons today, including the gospel reading from John (10:11-18) are about shepherds. In the days of the Old Testament, shepherds was another word for leaders. Those who guide (lead) the flock and shepherd (protect) the flock. Jesus sets for us the ultimate example of the good shepherd. The question is are we following Jesus’ voice or the voice of another shepherd who would lead us astray? See you Sunday, Father Seth+
