The Lord is My Shepherd

As we continued our series of studies on the names of God, this Sunday we reached “the LORD our Shepherd.” Using the model of Psalm 23, Steve showed how the LORD led us, provided for us, protected us and cared for us. This was Mothering Sunday, and he showed the parallels between the loving care of our mothers and the loving care of God.
This was an All Age Service, with Rainbows, Brownies and Guides present, and these and other children helped to act out the characteristics of the LORD our Shepherd, and those of our mothers. The symbols of the actions of the Good Shepherd were placed in the central aisle, and the children stood on the step of the sanctuary holding symbols of our mothers’ love and care.
