The scriptures read are Zechariah 11, Psalm 140 and Luke 2.
Zechariah 11. Bad shepherding makes God take over. But the sheep won't listen so he leaves them to their devices. They don't hold up their end of the covenant so he dissolves it and lets a useless shepherd take over.
Psalm 140. Love this version of this psalm in Russian!
Luke 2. For my reflections on this chapter, click here.
