Coming to recognize the voice of the Good Shepherd
Pastors are not called to be professionals. They have a higher calling. Shepherds are called to be protectors.

The Lord is portrayed as both "Good Shepherd" and "Lamb of God" in the Old and New Testament. In Psalm 23 the Lord is portrayed as the all kind and all powerful Shepherd, but one page earlier in Psalm 22, as well as in Isa 53, the Lord prophetically described as an attacked, crushed, forsaken, bruised, surrounded lamb who is led to slaughter. As we examine these mysteries we will enter once again into the horrible beauty of "Good Friday".
