"The Good Shepherd lays his life down for his sheep."
Jesus is our model in all things, including pastoral care. When we look at how Jesus cared for his disciples, we too can see how we are called to care for one-another. Sometimes, pastoral care can include providing practical help (like a lift to the hospital), whilst on other occasions it might simply involve 'being there' - providing a friendly ear to listen at a time of trouble. Good pastoral care will also include helpful times of prayer and Bible study as we together more of all that God has said to us through his Word.
