Happy New Year!


2018 is The Year of the Good Shepherd at Loaves & Fishes.


I have a shepherd’s staff in my office, a gift from a friend a few years back to remind me of my pastoral office. It’s a stick, really.


Shepherds use their sticks to prod and guide their sheep in the direction they want them to go. They use their stick to fight off predators and protect their flock.


Jesus calls Himself The Good Shepherd, telling us that as the Good Shepherd He willingly lays down His life for His Sheep.


Loaves & Fishes has always been the mission arm of the Harlingen churches. We help our churches do the work of the Good Shepherd.


The work of the church is the work of the Good Shepherd. As the churches’ mission arm are work is fundamentally the Good Shepherd’s work.


It is important for us to do this work and to remember that our work is at its core a spiritual undertaking.


On behalf of and  in the Name of the Good Shepherd we bring . . .
