Since returning from my week visiting refugee camps in Greece, many simple things here at home have reminded me of things I saw and heard there.
As I bought a sandwich from the buffet car on my train home to Devon, I was reminded of how the Salvation Army had responded to the first call to help with the large number of refugees who had turned up in Athens. “We got buttering – buttering, buttering, buttering!” said Maria, as we listened to her story of their involvement with the refugees.
What do you do in a crisis? You make sandwiches. Thousands and thousands of cheese sandwiches. And you offer the love of God, over and over and over again.
