I will gather the exiles. I will give them praise and honor in every land where they have suffered shame. Zephaniah 3:19 (NIV)
Jesus saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. Mark 6:34
Shepherd of our souls, we all are exiles in some way; we long for home. We are connected to others through the love we have with you and we ask that you help us to share that love in our daily interactions. Amen.
