Climbing with the Shepherd

As a child I always loved Mary Baker Eddy’s poem, “ ‘Feed My Sheep’, ” set to music as a hymn in the Christian Science Hymnal (Nos. 304–309, 456). It’s about God as a Shepherd, guiding and guarding His children as they move along. A few months ago I had a really cool opportunity get some new insights into this hymn’s meaning.

I woke up early in the morning to go for a long hike in the Brecon Beacons, a national park in Wales. Towards the beginning of the hike I had to climb up a steep hill, and I was finding it pretty challenging. In fact, I actually decided to start singing the hymn I mentioned above … out loud. 

We'd love to hear from you!
