This is Good Shepherd Sunday where we explore following Jesus as alive, progressive Christians with a vision of inclusiveness, love, care and affirming our Faith in the Risen Jesus, alive within all of God's Creation. We follow a Servent Ministry as we follow Jesus.
We are challenged to think in new ways within new frameworks that are different than how we began our Christian journeys as children. We need to put this behind us as we are aware that God is within, among us and beyond us. God loves all of God's creation, not just a few of us. This has great implications as the early church understood in Acts, where we share with all. This view of God within is known as "Panenthiesm", a concept of the nature of God within each of of us universally that we will explore in the Easter season.
