When I used to ask people about a glory sighting, I found I often wanted to share one myself. Knowing you might be asked about a glory sighting increases the likelihood you will be on the lookout for glory sightings to share. Though they are everywhere to be found, I’ve been out of practice looking for glory sightings. But on Monday night I experienced one. Even though no one asked, here it is.
When I was younger, I used to periodically arrange to visit nursing homes. Many homes were looking for people to interact with their residents, especially residents who never get visitors.
The small church I just started co-pastoring with Cathy leads a Monday night worship service at a nearby care facility once a month. When I say worship service, I mean a short prayer, a few verses of scripture, and then a 3–5-minute message. The favorite part of the service for most residents is singing a few hymns at the end of the service. The four or five of us from our church then spend a few minutes visiting with residents who attend.
Words can’t do glory sightings justice. But I still think they are worth sharing. I believe we find God in them. I know not everyone reading this believes that, but it is still good to be on the lookout for positive things we can share with each other. It is easy to find the negative when you look for it. There is plenty of it. Let’s encourage each other to look for good. There is plenty of it as well. Let’s be on the lookout for glory sightings.
