For all the poetry I could have presented on the subject of Christ as the Good Shepherd who leads us by quiet streams and gives us peace in the valley of the shadow of death, these are the lyrics I couldn't stop thinking about this week.

May the peace of Christ and the comfort of all of His Spirit's leading, guiding and nurturing be yours today, friends.

I Shall Not Want by Audrey Assad (via Trinity Fellowship on YouTube)

Today's readings: Acts 2:42-47, Psalm 23, 1 Peter 2:19-25, John 10:1-10

The Collect for the Second Sunday of Easter:

O God, whose Son Jesus is the good shepherd of your people; Grant that when we hear his voice we may know him who calls us each by name, and follow where he leads; who, with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
— Book of Common Prayer
