Maybe you’ve heard the story of the sheep in New Zealand named Shrek. He had escaped and evaded capture and shearing for six years. When he was finally discovered in his high mountain cave by Ann Scanlan, he was almost unrecognizable as a sheep. The first thing she did was to pin back his wool so that he could see to walk.

People were so interested in Shrek’s return, the owner kept him in a pen for weeks so that reporters could broadcast this amazing return of the lost sheep. Then, on live television, world champion sheep-shearer Peter Casserly shaved off six years worth of matted wool.

Shrek’s story is a lot like our own --Because “we all like sheep have gone astray”
