A true Sheep to Shawl Experience

Woolly Weekend - Sneak Peak Video - Courtesy Cherokee Nation
  
Dear friends of the farm,
With lambing season behind us, we shepherds turn to the wool at hand, and the remedy for providing coolness to our flock.  Every year we give the sheep an annual hair cut, in preparation for the heat of Oklahoma summers.  It is with loving care the shepherd provides this service to the flock.  Come, participate with us this Woolly Weekend!
 
Like the sheep before the shearer is silent, so our Lord went to the cross on our behalf.  (Isaiah 53:7)
 
Join us to see this living parable demonstrated before our eyes.
