Worship this Sunday, March 19: We have been focusing on where love is to really be found during this season of Lent. We too often look for love in the security of powerful figures, sure that they can “fix” things for us. It was no different for the people of the First and Second Testaments. They were looking for Royals, Saviors, Liberators who would offer peace and security in uncertain times. And they often looked in all the wrong places. The Temple Authorities just can’t believe that this trouble-maker, rule-breaker named Jesus is the One, the Son of God and Savior. Time and again Jesus uses the unlikely metaphor of a Shepherd to teach us how we ought to love and care for each other. No wonder, the Shepherd does what is needed, when it is needed, regardless of the “rules.”
