Crafted from beautiful vegetable-tanned leather, the Shepherd's Clutch is perfect for wallets, phones, keys and other everyday carry items. The clutch is inspired by the 2 Greek words for love used in John 21:15-19, with both "philia" and "agape" stamped along the front flap, 2 button clasps, and uses 2 different leathers in its construction. It also includes a backstrap for carrying.

Philia refers to the love one feels for friends, whereas agape refers to God's divine or unconditional love:

When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love (agapaō) me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love (phileō) you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” A second time he said to him, “Simon, son of John, do you love (agapaō) me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love (phileō) you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love (phileō) me? Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love (phileō) me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love (phileō) you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep... And after this he said to him, “Follow me.” John 21: 15-19

This is a powerful moment of forgiveness through Jesus confirming Peter three times as leader of the church, despite his three earlier denials. This act demonstrates God's enduring and unconditional love for us, despite our own concupiscence.

Dimensions:  8.5" L, ~4.5" W, ~1" Depth
