Jesus, The Good Shepherd

We Will Follow Him!

“And when he had found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes, he calls his friend and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.’”
Luke 15:6-7

Today we remember 11 September 2001, the Patriots Day! And for many of us, who this day touch very deeply, it is good to celebrate Good Shepherd Day! It is consoling that we have a Lord who is so much in love with us that He seeks us out!

9/11 is the result of hate, and we all have to deal with hateful people who do terrible things in our lives, but we need not be hateful! We accept the reality of what we have gone through, we accept the losses of people, places, and things. And we wait in hope for the peace that the Good Shepherd, Jesus, brings to our lives. When we are lost is sadness and despair, Jesus reached out to us in His word and in people who love, and He brings us back to peace!

Let us pray for one another!
