In John 10:11, Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
In planning to write this article, I thought of many topics or lessons brought out in Scripture. But this week on Jan. 31, one of the shepherds of an earthly flock is laid to rest. This event is foremost in my thoughts.
A friend and colleague, Pastor Marlys Korman, went to be with the Lord following a stroke. She is an earthly shepherd gone to be with the Good Shepherd.
