Continuing the series from last week, we pick up the theme of running barefoot in the kingdom by considering Jesus as the Good Shepherd and learning from John's Gospel how to abide, love, and then bear fruit for Christ. Even in weeks like this one this is not only possible, it is what we are made for.

O God, whose Son Jesus is the good shepherd of your people: Grant that when we hear his voice we may know him who calls us each by name, and follow where he leads; who, with you and the Holy Spirit, lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
