The work of a shepherd is hard and tough

The work of a shepherd is hard and tough

The second of our reflections here at St Mary’s considered the power of Love – We were asked to ponder on Jesus as the Good Shepherd who cares for and loves his sheep. Even though the work of an every-day working shepherd is hard and tough, they still care-for, protect and love their sheep, just like our Saviour. The readings and music were very calming and relaxing… especially while we quietly coming forward to light a candle for those people who were on our minds and those we love. The evening concluded with a beautiful poem by Helen Steiner Rice reminding us that ‘Love changes darkness into light and makes the heart take ‘wingless flight’… Beautiful, thank you
