Last night a group of our youth went singing at the Tillsonburg hospital. There's were eleven girls and only four guys but it worked really well. We hadn't gone since Christmas so it was really good to go visit the old folks there again. Jesus tells us that it is more blessed to give than to receive and it has been proven true once again. We are just as blessed as they are when we sing there and it's in being a blessing that we ourselves are blessed. Many of the patients were there half a year ago already so they're always happy to see us come back. There are also a few Christians in there and it's amazing to see the joy and peace on their faces as we sing for them. Others get upset though and even those that want us to sing for them, are staring at their TVs the whole time so it brings joy and grief at the same time. It makes you wonder how they can possibly grasp and bit of hope.
Many may think it odd for a group of teenagers to go singing at a hospital on a Thursday night but if only they could know the blessing and reward. It's reaching out to our community in a small way. Which brings me to a the question: What is the calling of the rebelutionary? Each one will have a different answer for this. In a way, I feel we have just done a small part in visiting the sick.
That's all for today so I'll be back next week. Look to Jesus and God bless.
