This week we continue to seek understanding what it is to belong, behave, and believe as followers of Jesus Christ. We have discovered that we, Christians, come together at the foot of the Cross, and leave from the empty tomb to follow into wildernesses and hostile worlds a Crucified and Risen Lord.

This week we will reflect together on the 23rd Psalm. Just a few beginning thoughts. I think the psalm teaches us to whom we belong, the Good Shepherd, and that we are lead and guided by rod and staff, and that all is required of us is submissiveness to our Shepherd.

There is only one Good Shepherd. There is only One to whom we belong. There is only One to whom we submit, outside of our humble submission to each other in the name of that Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
