“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matthew 9:35-36

 

In the Bible, people are repeatedly referred to as sheep. That’s right, those woolly domestic Jesus is even known as the Good Shepherd! The question is why? Why sheep and not lions or bears or even birds? The fact is sheep, like us humans, need a lot of nurturing and caring. They need a shepherd to guide them and protect them. Sheep unknowingly get into trouble, and more times than not need assistance getting back out of it again. Sound familiar?

 

Now that is what the Pastoral Care ministry is all about: assisting and caring for people, providing guidance for those who need it, to be there for those in need of rescue, to join in celebrating the victories and blessings of life, to mourn and comfort during the sad times, to nurse the broken ones back to health and to help them move forward into the greater things that God has planned for them. All of this flows out of a genuine love for people, a love that comes from God and that the world cannot duplicate. It is the same compassion that Jesus had for the crowds of people whom He came into contact with, the same compassion He still has for each one of us today.
