Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

Tend the Sheep — sermon by Ps Sam Powell

Tend the Sheep
1 Peter 5: 1-4 NKJV
by Ps Sam Powell

The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away.

    There are many “shepherds” who need to hear this sermon. The opening analogy to the characters Rolfe and Liesl from The Sound of Music is very effective.

    Tending the sheep without an awareness of wolves is not Scriptural, nor will the sheep be safe. But then, the ACFJ community knows this from experience. The wolves are effectively “excommunicated” by the admins / moderators, and the sheep are kept safe.

    Church can take place.
