Downtown continues to be my favorite destination each Monday morning. There is no greater feeling than hoisting the ten foot by five foot, 60-pound cross upright and praying for Kern County’s judicial system, that God’s justice and righteousness will prevail over Bakersfield. Individuals are now coming up and praying with me for the city of Bakersfield as well. Downtown is also where I hand out more “God’s Plus Sign: The Cross of Jesus” brochures than other places I walk. As I hoist the 60-pound cross upright at the downtown police station and right next to the memorial honoring fallen officers, my prayer is the very same one etched on the bronze memorial: Psalm 23. Praying for the safety of Bakersfield’s finest and their families is one of my favorite times during Crosswalk Bakersfield.
