Lutheran Witness: May 2006

In May, the Easter season ends and new images of Jesus enter our minds. Perhaps chief among them— springing from a scriptural text used almost invariably in May—is the image of the Good Shepherd. Few other verses rival “The Lord is my shepherd” in the emotional tug it exerts on our hearts. For that reason, with this May issue of The Lutheran Witness, we focus on “The Shepherd of Your Soul” in the cover story.
