Pastoring or Pasturing?


So I keep typing the word "pastoring" in something I'm working on and Word defaults to "pasturing."

So I looked up "pasturing." It means to feed. While I won't to be correct, of course, I love that meaning–to feed. Jesus said to "feed my sheep" three times to Peter. That's what we do in children's ministry, we feed Jesus' sheep–we pastor them and pasture them, I suppose.

God bless you as you feed his sheep throughout this coming weekend!
