Shepherding or huddling?

Striding out
moving from one place to the next
rounding up but not staying put
The good shepherd gathers the sheep
not into a holy huddle
but into formation
so that they can move on.
Why do we try to hide behind closed doors
when God is out there, looking for the strays
There's no point us getting too comfy
Because we will always need to move over
and make room for more.
There are always more lost ones to be found
always at risk sheep to be rescued.
The good shepherd never tires of looking
and neither should we.
