Just plugging away at my precious cowl, reading a few books but this one has been top of the stack this week. Of course, I heard of The Shepherd’s Life originally through Ginny but became intrigued with it lately in thinking about the context of shepherding in the Christian life. I am always interested in learning more about farm-y things, but also curious how Rebanks’ experience as a Shepherd might better inform my understanding of Christ as my Shepherd. Recently at our church, our pastor felt God’s nudge to step down and we are, as a church, in a season of searching for a new pastor. I think my soul feels a bit bewildered, a bit like a sheep without a shepherd. Anyway, I don’t seem to get much reading done lately, more knitting. I try to squeeze in a few minutes a day before bed but my progress is slow! Did you see my last post with pictures of the finished lori shawl? I’m so happy with it. It feels important to finish and record progress in a season where most of my labor seems to produce slow results. Little moments here and there add up to something beautiful in the end, right?
Joining Ginny today for her weekly yarn along, where we share our current reads + knits.
