It’s not for you! I wrote it just for myself, in response to I Peter 5: 1-4, and the words, "Be shepherds of God’s flock that is entrusted to you." Since I am currently the only designated pastor–or shepherd–at Emmanuel Mennonite Church, I invited the members to tune out, plan their weeks or their menus, balance their checkbooks, catch up on their reading or their sleep while I effective talk to myself………..unless…. well, if you absolutely have to read it and see if the shoe fits you, then I suppose you could link on here to read "The Shepherd’s Heart" at Download Shepherdsermon.doc. What’s the worst that could happen if you do? You might end up a pastor, too.
