And I Was Blessed

ShepherdCalls_WPShe was walking up a long, wooden, temporary ramp at Children’s Mercy Hospital carrying a large, heavy carton. She placed the box on the stair rail and stopped to rest a minute.

“Could I help you carry that?”  I asked.

“Would you?” she asked pleadingly.

“Sure,” I said, picking up the box. ”Where are you going?” As I lifted the box, my appreciation for this frail woman’s strength increased. This

A Labor Day Hymn

ShepherdCalls_WPA hymn we sang often when I was young would be appropriate to sing as America celebrates Labor Day — “Work for the Night Is Coming.” Here are some of its instructions:

“Work thru the morning hours . . . while the dew is sparkling . . . work when the day grows brighter . . . in the glowing sun . . . work for daylight flies . .

If You Could Take It with You

ShepherdCalls_WPThere is an angel known as Wiley. Wiley is the nickname the other angels have given him. He never does anything dishonest, but he has unusual ways of persuading people to do right. Let me give you an example.

Mr. Gotrocks died and went to heaven. He had heard, “You can’t take it with you,” but since he had so much, he decided he would try.

Gotrocks arrived at the

In the Red

ShepherdCalls_WPIn our home, there are many Bibles — different translations, different bindings, even different colors. The printing in them is often different also. Old English print is attractive, but it is difficult to read. Small print makes for a compact, easy-to-carry Bible; but it, too, can be difficult to read. I suspect one is more likely to read a large print Bible because it is easier.

The Bibles I like

Lesson from a Robin

ShepherdCalls_WPA fledgling robin flopped around on the ground. Obviously, it had fallen from its nest before it could fly. It took only a few minutes to locate the nest, which still contained two baby birds. The hedge trimmer had disturbed the nest when he trimmed the bush housing it.

I have heard that if you put a baby bird back in its nest the parents will push it out because

Just Ask Someone

ShepherdCalls_WPThe new member asked about the family that lived next door to the church. He noticed the father outside cutting grass on Sunday morning when everyone else was arriving at church.

Later in the week he came to church on an errand; he observed a trash can on the curb full of beer bottles.

When he asked a long time church member about this family, they replied, “Oh, they’re just

The Shepherd Calls: Follow Him

ShepherdCalls_WPMy brother-in-law, Billy, sent word that he had learned to multi-task. He was on his knees weeding his garden when he thought, “I’m already down on my knees; so while I am down here, I could pray.” If that is multi-tasking, may we all learn to do it!

His words reminded me of Brother Lawrence, a 17th century monk, who referred to his prayer life as “practicing the presence of

Learning from His Love

ShepherdCalls_WPFrom my office window, I could see the Interstate. For the past few days, there had been a radar trap somewhere on the highway. I couldn’t see the trap, but I could see the patrolman as he pursued and stopped the vehicles. It was an often-repeated experience on that stretch of highway.

Observing the phenomenon brought emotional pain for me. Each time I looked up and saw the patrol lights

Fresh is the Word

ShepherdCalls_WPWhile sitting in an office waiting for an appointment, I was flipping through the magazines for something to read. One magazine was predicting the winner of the NBA championship. Another magazine was reporting on an expected medical breakthrough. Everything was old. It was rather typical of a much-used professional office.

There was a certain safety in reading those articles. After all, I knew how most things would turn out. For
