Easter 4 – When asked to think of an image of "Jesus the Good Shepherd", many of us will remember classical paintings and stained glass windows that show Jesus in an immaculate, freshly laundered white robe, cuddling a freshly shampooed white lamb. It depicts safety and comfort, but it hardly represents a shepherd at work in the world. Think, rather, of a countryman accompanying his flock out into the dirty, dangerous, unruly real world, intimately acquainted with the flock, living among them, and prepared to protect them to the bitter end. We are the flock. We cannot spend all our time at home, resting in our shepherd's arms – we need to be following him out into the world, helping make the world the place that God meant it to be.
Psalm 23; John 10: 11-18
