Because Lutherans love their neighbor (pt. 2):
VERSE: Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them—not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve. - 1 Peter 5:2 (NIV)
VOICE: The church is being called back to fulfilling the initial responsibility of ministering to the human condition. - Brandon T. Crowley
PRAYER: God, let us be trusted shepherds who tend to your flock and fulfill the mission we are called to as the church. Give us a willing heart and spirit to minister to the human condition with great care. Amen.
We are in this together. We are better together. We may be apart, but we are not alone.
