As you might imagine from the opening page of our site, we are sheepdog people. Shetland Sheepdogs to be precise. We love them deeply, and they love us in a way that shows us a lot about how we ought to love and trust God.
I have just finished reading a book along those lines. Phillip Keller’s book “Lessons from a Sheepdog” is a beautifully simple, but profoundly thoughtful parable of our relationship to God as played out in the relationship of Keller to his border collie, Lass.
From the story of his rescue of Lass from captivity, to the full measure of the redeeming relationship they live out as they work together on the sheep ranch, there is much to learn about our behavior from Lass. I highly recommend it.
