The floods that have hit Cumbria are having along-lasting effect. Bridges have collapsed, roads have been closed and hundreds of families have been rendered homeless.
It is heart-breaking to walk along the worst affected roads and see people’s lives discarded as their possessions, all ruined by the flood water, lie discarded along the pavements and gutters. An odd shoe here, a broken picture frame there and everywhere a damp and decaying smell in the air.
Our church at Hebron have been privileged (yes that is the right word) to help. What we have done is what Jesus would have done. We could not hold back the waters or return the homes as they were but we can offer a hot meal, a place to warm up and time to listen.
With so much sadness all round the world, it is good to have been able to help in a minute way.
