Online Worship: Fourth Sunday of Easter—Shepherds, Wolves, and Thieves

Good Shepherd Sunday often conjures up peaceful images of fluffy white sheep frolicking in green pastures without a care in the world, as their kind and loving shepherd keeps watch. Real life is not so idyllic. There are thieves and wolves who seek to do harm and hired hands who are only in it for themselves. But the shepherd and the sheep have a bond that is stronger than all of that, one where Jesus our Good Shepherd knows us and loves us more deeply than we could ever imagine.

This worship service includes a thanksgiving for baptism. You may want to have a bowl of water ready before you watch. The Bible readings for this worship service are: Psalm 23; 1 John 3:16-24; and John 10:11-18.
