Pew Leaflet Sunday 7 May 2017

Jesus… seems to mix his metaphors, referring to himself as both the shepherd and the gate through which the shepherd leads the sheep to pasture. There is a good reason for these two images. As the door, Jesus both protects the sheep from thieves and predators, and provides a way to shelter and food. As shepherd, Jesus was willing to give his life for the sheep, and was concerned for their welfare… As we interact with others – both our companions in the faith and those who are outside of faith communities – we have to choose how we will treat them. We can either act as gatekeepers who block their way to God’s grace and love, or we can be doorways that make it easy for others to connect with God’s life. (Sacredise)
