Sheep Scavenger Hunt

This morning Fr. Curtis blessed several prayer shawls knitted by Marsha, one of which was presented to Grace.

The theme of our prayers and readings and sermon today was sheep and their shepherd.

In addition to Collect, we had the 23rd Psalm, the New Testament Lesson (1 Peter 2:19-25) and our Gospel (John 1:1-10) loaded with sheep/shepherd analogies.

Our hymns, too, contained shepherd imagery. Hymn 645 The King of love my shepherd is, Hymn 343 Shepherd of souls refresh and bless, and Hymn 708 Savior, like a shepherd lead us.

Here's the Sheep Scavenger Hunt. Do you know the location in the sanctuary of each of these sheep? Go ahead, try to find them next time you're at St. Stephen's!

Happy hunting!
