This is one place where we sing the entire time. Why? It just seems to work. The Lord will give me little things to say between the songs. I really don't even think about it ahead of time. This time it was all Christmas carols. When I show up the residents are heading to the dinning hall for snacks. It always reminds me of singing at a dinner theater. Here is a verse that came to mind this morning.
1 Corinthians 9:19-23New Living Translation (NLT)
19 Even though I am a free man with no master, I have become a slave to all people to bring many to Christ.20 When I was with the Jews, I lived like a Jew to bring the Jews to Christ. When I was with those who follow the Jewish law, I too lived under that law. Even though I am not subject to the law, I did this so I could bring to Christ those who are under the law.21 When I am with the Gentiles who do not follow the Jewish law,[a] I too live apart from that law so I can bring them to Christ. But I do not ignore the law of God; I obey the law of Christ.
22 When I am with those who are weak, I share their weakness, for I want to bring the weak to Christ. Yes, I try to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some.23 I do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings.
