Bluebell Woods with Jesus

This April we walked, explored and prayed about the greatest story ever told “Easter” with our friends at Brookside Church.

As we entered Oakwood thinking about the weight of the cross Jesus carried we were overwhelmed by the sheer number of bluebells in the wood.  None of us can remember seeing so many, so widespread. It felt like God was providing a blanket upon which Jesus could fall when the cross grew too heavy.

Over the last six months we’ve seen these trees shed their leaves before going inside of themselves to survive winter. Now we see new life sprouting all around; a very real sign of God in His creation and a prompt for us to play our part.
