Ron Reed (founding Artistic Director of Pacific Theatre) offered insight into what it means to be a sheep of the Sheperd, and how difficult they can often be. Ron talked of some of the problems that came with managing Pacific Theatre, and how it seeped into both his artistic pursuits and his spiritual life. He then shared a painting “Sermon on the Mount” by Claude Lorrain and commented on various parts of it. Being a sheep doesn’t necessarily mean that you are docile, and being comforted isn’t necessarily comfortable. [JL]
There was also a Congregational Annual Meeting immediately following the service, at which the business of the church was discussed and plans made for the coming year.
