This leader is the shepherd
I do not want.
He maketh me sit down on green love seats;
he leadeth me to meetings.
He ignoreth my soul.
He leadeth me to complete my homework assignment—
It taketh three hours, for heaven’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of downsizing and debt,
you are not with me.
Your wife and the church staff; they run from me.
You preparest a table of fattening foods before me.
You are my enemies.
My blood’s about to boil;
My disappointment overflows.
Surely your incessant e-mails will follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in this lousy group forever!

4 Thoughts to “The Psalm of the No-Good Shepherd”
LOL! That's great Mike! I laugh because there is some unfortunate truth in that Ps 23 re-mix: He ignoreth my soul. Ouch! Lord help us! Looking forward to the future posts…
Thanks, Mason. I had a post ready for today and decided to take the day off from the blog. Didn't have the heart. I think I'll wait until Monday.
what happens if the small group leader has also been neglected by his own shepherd or leader above him ? how can he take good care of his sheeps if he himself has a alot of problems to go through alone..? jus wondering
I have another question Mike, i was quite ill couple of years ago and was not able to function as a small group leader properly. Throughout that period, my wife has been doing everything alone and has not received support nor encouragement from the cell group. As a result, she has this bitterness abt them that has not been settled. We are still in the same cell group but i sense that what happened during that period is preventing her from embracing the rest of the group fully.. what do you think can be done to breakthrough this situation ?
