St George. St Adelbert.
Acts 11:1-18. Psalm 41(42):2-3; 42(43):3-4. John 10:11-18.
My soul is thirsting for the living God—Psalm 41(42):2-3; 42(43):3-4.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
Anyone who does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother.
Dear Lord, the psalmist asked for God to send out his light and his truth to lead us to his dwelling. Peter found the light and the truth in a vision. Most of us, while longing for you, do not have visions but still need to look for your light and truth and to meet you, the living God.
How do we look? Where do we look? The best place to look is in prayer in our hearts, alone and also with others in public prayer. We meet you when we think about and listen to your message. You tell us that you are our shepherd.
But you also say that there are others, not of our community, for whom you care. We are all your sheep.
