Many of our congregations and schools are named Good Shepherd. If this is the case in your congregation/school, consider making Good Shepherd Sunday a special celebration of your congregational/school family. Remember the establishment and history of your congregation and present-day activities and mission. Consider special rites and ceremonies such as blessing of congregational/school officers, intercessions for the congregation/school, and processions around the church/school.
Please note that this Sunday is also Mothers’ Day. Additional prayer and music suggestions are included in today’s service pages.
