Psalm 23 Paraphrased

In the late 1990s after returning from Israel, I wrote and preached a sermon entitled, "The Lord Our Shepherd." It was based on insights that our study tour instructor had shared concerning sheep and shepherds in the Middle East.

Working on that sermon transformed my understanding of the Lord's care for His people.  (I think that it also helped me to be a better pastor.)

That messaged concluded with a paraphrase of Psalm 23 based on my expanded interpretation of the passage.  By request, I am making my paraphrase of the passage available here as a PDF Download.
