The shepherds: Charging into the night

Luke 2:15-20

Question for Reflection:
What has God called you to do that frightens you? How are you working to overcome that fear?

Prayer for the day:
God of mystery, why shepherds? Why Moses and Rahab and Paul? Why me? Help me to see in myself—and the other unlikely souls around me—what you see. Give me the courage of a shepherd to do whatever you ask of me.

~ Donna Kline, Director of Denominational Deacon Ministry
