Oaks Lenten Devotions - Week 1
In the Oaks Lenten series this year you will be introduced to a few of the kids at the Mission and some of the experiences that have deepened the sense of God's presence in their lives during the time they have spent here.
Think of it as a brief glimpse into the journeys they are on. Indeed, Lent has often been described in terms of a journey, as the Christian community marks that journey Jesus was on, bound for Jerusalem. We talk about it as the way of the cross.
These kids are on their own Lenten journey in a way. It has been rocky to this point, to say the least. But in the midst of it now the Lord reminding them, through these experiences, of those footprints alongside theirs, yet another blessed sign of that promised presence, no matter what.
