The Flock has always been about “a humorous approach to the serious matter of our relationship with God.”

Indeed, that relationship has certainly been challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic and the serious matter of enormous human suffering, stress and a sense of hopelessness.

As daily life has been upended, our trust in God and faithfulness in following Jesus’ ways have been tested.

But sheepishly, if we may, we remember that Jesus’ promise of new life in him—yes, resurrection—is at the core of our belief.

Now, as the world slowly emerges from this dark time, so do Jesus’ sheep — so that new life can mean being attentive to what we’ve learned and committing to live accordingly.
