In these challenging times we believe that coming together virtually in this way will draw us closer as a community and connect us more deeply with the children and communities we serve.

Please spread the word by sharing our Lenten reflections with your friends, family and church community. 

We are honored and humbled to walk the 40 days of Lent with you.

Easter Sunday Reflection

Love is… 

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.   

1 Cor 13:13 

As we approach the end of our Lenten journey together and prepare to celebrate Easter, we are reminded of the incredible love that Jesus has for us.  

Love has been the driving force in all our weekly reflections. We are separated from the children we serve by distance, technology, life circumstances and culture; yet our prayers and reflections over the past few weeks have drawn us closer to them.  

We’ve learned to stretch ourselves, to challenge our minds and our hearts because of this one thing – love. When we spend time reflecting on scripture and the work that God has called us to do, we are transformed.   

Maya Angelou tells us that, “love recognizes no barriers, it jumps hurdles, leaps fences, and penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”   

What that destination looks like, and the journey we each take to get there, will be different for everyone.  

Together, let’s think about love. The love we hold for our neighbours, no matter where or who they are. And our love for the children that we may never meet, but who enjoy a daily meal in their place of education because of the way we have learned to love from our Lord. 

Thank you for joining us on this Lenten journey. We are so grateful that you chose to share these moments of prayer and reflection with us.
