(Cushing, Okla.) “I AM: The Good Shepherd.” Why would this speak so deeply to the disciples?

According to the prophets, Israel had had plenty of bad ones who preyed on rather than protected the sheep and ran off when there was trouble. After all that, it would be hard to trust shepherds. What would a good one be like?

What does this mean for the roles of leadership and care, not just then, but now?

To learn more about the Good Shepard stop by the First United Methodist Church, located at 930 S. Little Avenue, on the Corner of 9th & Little this coming Sunday (April 26, 2015) at 9:00 (a.m.) or 11:10 (a.m.).
