When a hate group came to the University of Delaware campus recently, Blue Hens for Christ students and members knew they could not simply shake their heads and walk away. BHC bought 900 roses to give out in the same area on the day following the appearance of the hate group. Notes attached to the rose stems referenced 1 Kings 19:11-13: God shows himself as a gentle and calming wind, not a chaotic storm. The note also referenced 1 John 4:7-11: “Love one another, for love comes from God… He showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him… by taking away our wrongs. Since God loves us that much, we surely ought to love each other.” Passersby smiled and expressed their appreciation for what BHC was doing. All 900 roses were given out, and could be seen all over campus.
Even the rain could not dampen the passion of BHC students and friends to show and share the love of God!
