Story Time and More with Pastor Mary Beth (PMB) takes place on Thursdays at 11:30 a.m. via GoToMeeting.

On Thursday, April 30, we talked about sheep and shepherds. I shared a little bit about how it was to have sheep on the farm that I grew up on in Ohio. Sometimes sheep were cute and cuddly and sometimes they were not, as their wool collected dirt and dust and insects.

We explored how the biblical narratives use these images of the shepherd and the sheep. I asked, “If we imagine that Jesus is the shepherd in the story, what does that make us? One young person said, “The smelly sheep!”

I invited them to make a “sheep” ahead of time so that they could share their creation. Here they are. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
