Whilst in hospital last evening suddenly four people turned up in the ward, a man with a guitar and three women, and started singing Amazing Grace, followed by When all the Saints Come Marching in.
The lady I was with asked that I help her out of bed so she could see what was going on.
The group sang for a few minutes and it was obvious they cheered up both patients and visitors.
So, what point am I trying to make here?
Two points really:
First, one day this group of singers will hear the words: “Come you that are blessed by my Father! … I was sick and you took care of me.” Matthew 25:34-36.
The second point is that no one, patients, visitors or medical staff complained that this group of singers was spreading Christianity in a public place and no one was offended by their presence or what they did.
Praise the Lord!
