The Fourth Sunday in Easter

April 29, 2012




“Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. – John 10:11,16
