"I have a mission I believe in. I want to preserve meaning of the sheep & shepherd analogies in scripture, to make God's word more relatable to those not now living in agrarian society; to educate people what understanding "I am the Good Shepherd" tells us about Jesus' heart, character and personality. But being only one person, if this message is truly to spread, it will depend upon teaching as many others as will listen, so they may in turn, teach the people in their own groups. Essentially, I need to educate "shepherds", that they may be empowered to teach their own "flocks". "
"If people can become more familiar with sheep again in our 21st century world, the significance of those ideas [expressed by sheep analogies in Scripture] ...will not be lost."
