Free Gift of God

I was written by a regular visitor to St Stephen’s:
“St Stephens continues to be a special place where things happen.
I stepped out of the Church the other month and elderly man walking by pointed at your board advertising coffee and in a gruff self righteous tone said to me. 
“That should be free, I am a pensioner and I cant afford it”.  It is a church he inferred; wagging his finger accusingly.
I replied “it is FREE? When people buy a coffee in the café it allows other people like yourself to get theirs free”.
“Do you mean I can get it free then”.
I said “yes, just explain your need and have your coffee, even a light snack”.
He smiled back and said cheerfully, “right I will be in tomorrow”.
It was like a little parable of the Grace and Love of God.”
