Covenant: A Sign of God’s Steadfast Love
This five-week study will begin on Wednesday, February 24. Two sessions will be offered via Zoom at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm. A recording of each session will be available on our YouTube channel.
The theme of covenant is central to the story of the Bible. Beginning with creation itself, God established his everlasting covenant of love and faithfulness. Even when God’s people rebelled and rejected his covenant, God’s steadfast love never wavered. Using the Old Testament readings for the Sundays in Lent, we will trace the theme of covenant from Noah to the prophet Jeremiah, who spoke of God’s promise to establish a new covenant, which Christians believe was fulfilled in Jesus Christ.
Session One has been posted on our Prayer and Study page.

A River Through the Desert: A virtual pilgrimage to the Holy Land
For the past year, most people have not been able to travel or spend much time exploring the world around us. So, this Lenten season, you are invited to join us for a virtual pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Hosted by St. George’s Anglican College in Jerusalem, each week will include a short video message from the Dean of St. George’s followed by reflection and discussion. Fr. Doug will also be sharing photos and videos from his own pilgrimage experience. Our virtual pilgrimage will focus on the following six geographical features of the Holy Land and how these locations relate to the ministry of Jesus and our own spiritual journeys.
Each gathering will be held outside on the field. You are encouraged to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will not be able to gather for our usual soup supper, so plan to eat before you come!

Fr. Doug has posted the St. Georges program and his own additional presentation from Wednesday. You can view it on his blog, Rectors Corner.
We are seeking 300 $50 sponsorships to meet critical food needs for our friends in Bondeau, Haiti.
Good Shepherd is working in conjunction with South Florida Haiti Project and a diocesan effort to help our long-time friends in the Bon Samaritan School and community in Bondeau, Haiti.
Good Shepherd is excited to present as our 2021 Lenten Outreach Project, the parish goal of 300 sponsorships at $50 each, to help immediate food needs.
You may remember our Food PACKING event two years ago, when Fr. Phanord came to Good Shepherd to help us assemble nutritious food packets. We created more than 75,000 meals that weekend!
Since we are unable to gather in that way due to the pandemic, we are hoping to PAIR your gift, IN ANY AMOUNT, with someone who needs this life-sustaining nutrition. Your donations will send a container of rice and beans, and dried spices and vegetables to Bondeau.
AND, if you have a message of prayer or support to include with your donation, please send or email it to Good Shepherd. The messages will be translated into Creole and presented to community members. We are PAIRING people with people.
By clicking on the GIVE TODAY link below, you will be living into Good Shepherd's mission and vision to radiate God's love to everyone, everywhere.
The need is great.
Thank you for your kindness and participation.
