Sermon Sketch

Preaching at West Goshen today for the installation of Pastor Norman Replogle today and David Yoder sketched this picture of me, trying to capture a few phrases from my sermon.
I was reminding the congregation of our responsibility to make disciples of all people, suggesting there are many people who have become lost on their journey through life like sheep without a shepherd.

Using the passage from Matthew 9:35-38, "the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few," Jesus said "ask the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers into the harvest." I made the point that God sends us "us" to be the laborers in the harvest.

Thanks David for the sketch.
