Our community choir performed our Christmas cantata last Sunday morning. My friend, Paula, though she doesn’t live in this community, began attending our performances last year. Just to give me some moral support, I guess. After the concert, as I prepared to drive down south to my church, it occurred to me to ask Paula if she would like to go with me. To my surprise, she agreed! It’s about an hour’s drive, but with Paula to talk to as we drove along, the time went fast. After church, we had a practice for our Christmas presentation coming up this next weekend. I had warned Paula this would take place, but she sat there drinking coffee and enjoying our flubs and silliness as we worked to get our acts together. Afterward we went for a late lunch at Best Thai and then I had to pick up a few extra gifts at Costco before driving home. We really enjoyed the day together, and Paula says she would like to do it again. She calls herself a lapsed Catholic; that’s why I was surprised she wanted to go with me. I don’t know if anything will come of this, but I do know I even surprised myself by inviting her. Go with the Spirit. You never know where he will lead.
