Because God so loved the world…

For the fifth year in a row, a team of volunteers from Hope for Belper handed out more than 100 Easter eggs in Belper Town Centre to accompany the Good Friday walk of witness by Churches Together in Belper.

We don’t necessarily repeat projects year after year for the sake of it but this one has always gone down well with people in the town and this year was no exception, although it helped that the rain held off until the end!

Some people always seem genuinely surprised to be given ‘something  for nothing’ and ask us how much they owe us.  My hope is that by this simple act of kindness we are giving a very small glimpse of what God’s grace is like, and that Jesus has already paid the price.

Thanks to all who took part (and to Sainsbury’s for selling us a job lot of eggs after Costco ran out!)
