In this episode, we consider the readings for the fourth Sunday of Easter, Year A in the Lectionary cycle: Acts 2:42-47; Psalm 23; 1 Peter 2:19-25; John 10:10-10.

We discuss Jesus' metaphor of the sheepfold and naming Himself as the gate and consider Peter's exhortation to follow Christ's example. We also reflect on how David, a shepherd and a king, drew from shepherding imagery to write of the Lord's goodness and faithful love, and note that the early church's communal life included fellowship, prayer, breaking bread, and receiving the apostles' teaching with glad and humble hearts.

Notes:
--Dwell App
--Song "I Shall Not Want" Psalm 23 (Marissa wanted to mention this in the Psalm 23 discussion)

--Prayers of the People for 4th Sunday of Easter
--Metrical Collect for Easter 4

Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
