My Sheep Hear My Voice – Mosaic

“My sheep hear my voice. I know them, and they follow me.” – John 10:27 (NRSV)

When Jesus says his sheep hear his voice, he’s referring to a phenomenon his listeners know—that of sheep who can recognize the voice of their own shepherd. That bonding takes place over time as the shepherd speaks to the sheep, cares for them, and in a real sense, builds relationship with them.

Building relationship for the sake of and after the model of the Good Shepherd is exactly what the ministry of Mosaic is about. Working with people with disabilities, mental and behavioral health needs and autism, as well as aging adults, Mosaic works to build relationships between staff and clients, between clients and one another and between clients and the community, all for the sake of helping individuals be empowered to live the best, most independent life they can. As they do, they transform the lives not only of their clients, but of the clients families and loved ones.
