Singing in church

As long as I’m posting about church I couldn’t resist sharing this.

A friend of mine spent the summer caring for mentally disabled adults. He loved his job and was a brilliant caretaker. He would bring the two men to church on Sunday afternoons and he invited me to join them.
They loved to come and sing and clap and eat donuts. One Sunday after the band finished a song one of the guys yelled out, now sing “Roll Out The Barrel” and much to my surprise the band played it and the whole congregation sang it.
I still smile at the memory.
