Silence of the Lambs

And why is it we get warm and fuzzy when we hear that word "flock"? What is a flock? The keeper of a one is a pastor, and "pastor" means shepherd, so the flock must be sheep, or goats. What happens to sheep who have been tenderly cared for by caring shepherds/pastors? The last time I checked, they ended up as Sunday dinner. Or are they tended so lovingly only for their wool?
