This Lenten theme focuses on Jesus’ journey in the wilderness and our own. We observe this forty-day season to match Jesus' forty days in the wilderness—and like Jesus, we are led into this wilderness by the Spirit. Perhaps one of the gifts of the angels that dwell in this wilderness is the opportunity to discover how courageous, how steady, and how faithful we have the ability to be. That does not mean that these forty days will be easy. That does not mean that we will not fall short or beg for an easy way out. But it does mean that here, at the beginning of our own forty days, we are reminded that there are both devils and angels waiting for us in the wilderness.
