Our School Namesake: Good Shepherd
At the time Jesus was teaching in Galilee, many people kept sheep. Shepherds cared for their sheep leading them wherever they could find food and water. The sheep knew their shepherd so well they would come when he called. If a young lamb lost its way a shepherd would carry it home and care for it. Shepherds took great care in protecting their flocks.
Sometimes when he was trying to teach people about himself, Jesus told them stories about shepherds to help them understand. Jesus said he was a good shepherd. In the same way that sheep know the voice of their shepherd, people would come to know him too. If they followed his teachings, they would live their lives as God wanted them to. Jesus said they would become on flock, with one shepherd.
Jesus Christ is our Good Shepherd. We trust in the Good Shepherd to find us when we are lost and to protect us when we are scared. We know the voice of the Good Shepherd and come when we are called. Christ’s teachings permeate all that we do in our community of Good Shepherd. We are one flock with one shepherd.
“I am the Good Shepherd. I know mine and mine know me.” ~John 10:14
