For your contemplation: “The Sheep-Dog” We offer ourselves, one way or another, to try to work for God. We want, as it were, to be among the sheep-dogs employed by the Good Shepherd. Have you ever watched a good sheep-dog at work? He is not an emotional animal. He goes on with his job quite steadily; takes no notice of bad weather, rough ground or of his own comfort. He seldom or never stops to be stroked. Yet his faithfulness and intimate communion with his master are of the loveliest things in the world. Now and then he looks at the shepherd. And when the time comes for rest, they are generally to be found together. Let his be the model of your love.” Evelyn Underhill.

St. Paul’s is located at 625 C St. on the edge of EWU campus.
