Sheep Among Wolves - Aug 20,2017

Worship on August 20, 2017

We continue “Walking With Jesus” in this Pentecost season of understanding and growing deeper, and we add rich elements of Celtic worship to the day!

 “sheep among wolves”
The image of a sheep can be an unattractive one to the people of God.  Yet Jesus knows, as he sends his followers forth in mission, that they are vulnerable in a world that operates according to its own values and expectations.  And he knows this full-well, having personally experienced its potential for resistance and rejection.  Yet he has no desire for them, or us, to become victims.  Rather, he cautions us to be wise in the ways of the world, shrewd in our dealings and mindful of wolves that lurk among the lambs.
