My Shepherd Is the Lord: The Video
The Timeless Message of the 23rd Psalm

     Why is the 23rd Psalm one of the most memorized writings of all time? Because it speaks to people so graphically, personally, and assuredly. Because its message provides significant meaning to people at critical times of their lives—times of illness and dying, uncertainty and anxiety, loss and grief. Because it speaks also for times of contentment and joy, promise and hope. Willowgreen now brings this psalm to life in a new way so its original meaning is uncovered and its present-day message is illuminated. Photography of stained glass windows, ancient texts, and beautiful scenes from nature captures your attention, while the warm narration with its original music creates a captivating effect. A book with the same title is also available.
