The Lost Sheep – Rev Lucy Burden

 

Have you ever experienced the pain of losing something followed by the joy of finding something?  This is the question that Rev Lucy Burden faced us with at the start of this sermon.  The well known parable of the lost sheep talks of leaving the 99 who are safe to seek the 1 who is lost.  By considering passages in Ezekiel and Luke, Rev Lucy asks us to consider the Good Shepherd who has come to seek and to save those who are lost.  We are reminded of His compassion and His commitment when we, like sheep, go astray.
