Yesterday I was leading worship for the local care facilities many of which are nursing homes. I let the the residents choose the hymns which makes for interesting choices but yesterday was a Christmas one in the middle of the summer. Part of me wanted to say not yet, but I thought the better of it; when a nursing home resident asks for a Christmas song, it could be the last time they get to sing it. Who am I to rob them of such a simple and meaningful joy?
Today I am grateful for the way the Spirit led in the moment.
