On Thursday 9 November we were delighted to welcome Connie Croly, a long-standing friend of Thursday Fellowship. Connie spoke on the much-loved Psalm 23, and brought fresh insights into this familiar part of the Bible, illustrating her talk with many examples from her own experience.
Psalm 23, as we know, was written by David, the shepherd-king, and his experience of tending his father’s flocks as a boy inspired him to see God as his Shepherd. Connie reminded us that a good shepherd gives guidance – “He leads me “, protection – “He restores my soul”, healing -“He anoints my head with oil”, provision – “He prepares a table”.
Jesus is not only our Good Shepherd, He is also the door of the sheep-fold, guarding and protecting us. We can rest safe and secure in his care.
