Good Shepherd Sunday

At 10:30 a.m. worship this Sunday, April 13, Tyrone Presbyterians will shine the sermon and the song spotlight on Psalm 23, as they celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday.
Presbyterians designate the fourth Sunday after Easter as Good Shepherd Sunday. On Good Shepherd Sunday, Presbyterians remember that the Old Testament ancestors of Jesus lived as wandering shepherds. These ancient Jews composed Psalm 23 to describe God as their Lord and Shepherd. Also, Good Shepherd Sunday reminds Christians that Christ called Himself the Good Shepherd, who rescued his lost sheep from sin and death, as retold in the New Testament parable of the lost sheep.
As the days after Easter 2008 progress toward Ascension Thursday and Pentecost Sunday, Presbyterians invite everyone to join them at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 13 as they focus on the Good Shepherd, who has promised to lead people through the valley of the shadow of death, and into a new life of resurrection with the risen Lord.
