2021-04-25 Sunday Worship “The Good Shepherd”

We’ve all needed some guidance in our lives every now and then… directions to a particular place, instructions for an unfamiliar task.  When we think of Jesus as a Shepherd in our lives, we often think of him the same way.  It’s true that Jesus’s life and commandments set us on a path of living good, holy lives.  When when Jesus calls himself the Good Shepherd, he is pointing to himself as far more than a mere self-help guru.  This week, Rev.
