Sunday 7/19 - The Lord is my shepherd

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not be in want.
The LORD makes me lie down in green pastures,
and leads me beside still waters.
You restore my soul, O LORD...

These are some of the most familiar words of scripture. And with good reason. They speak directly to some of the hardest realities of life: that we face enemies, that our journey takes us through dark valleys, that the path to a safe and restful place is not certain or well-marked.

Each day we hope for guidance, for a good shepherd who will be with us, and help us seek the peaceful refuge we need. And each Sunday we gather together to praise God, to sing. to share our lives and experience God in community. This Sunday starting at 10am at St. Matthew's we will have a guest musician, Andy Chopra, and Paul Bellan-Boyer will preach.
