Friday Saturday Photo – Shepherd, Calf, and One

King David poses problems in the Old Testament Lectionary Text for this week. The Shepherd-Boy-Become-King becomes the predator lion he once killed while protecting his father’s sheep. Reading the story of his pursuit of Bathsheba reminded me of a couple of photos I took when we were in Colorado earlier this month.

We were heading toward Lake City when we happened upon hundreds of sheep. We saw no one guiding them as they moved across the road. We saw no sheep dog corralling them as they sought new pasture. It is hard not to think of Jeremiah and his description of the errant shepherds of the people,

The final photos tie in as they, when alone, would surely provide a feast for any of its natural predators.
