Dear all, in haste between services, but I confronted a typo on Friday that I had honestly never seen before (having become INURED to "the Herald Angles" et al., right?) -- this was a splendid new hymn title: "Whole Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night"

Don't be messin' me up with no fragmentary shepherds, there, friends.

Wholeness to all you shepherds out there, this week and always.

whole shepherds? I had no idea there was an option for partial shepherd? And if so, what part would I need/want/get/have? and why?

Hope you have a good week!

well with all the "fractional" (not to mention "fractious") appointments in our diocese, the idea of a "whole shepherd" is quite enticing actually!

Excellent! My friend who attends the Cathedral in City of Lakes claimed to be beset each Advent by "Lo, He Comes with Clods Descending" but I've never heard of a Whole Shepherd before.

They have a tendency to wash their socks when they are supposed to be keeping a look out, anyway.
