I was making polite conversation with a retreat leader one day, prior to a staff retreat. It was a Monday morning, and I mentioned that we had sung a particular tune the day before in worship and I couldn’t get it out of my head.
“Did you ever pause to consider,” he asked, “that it might be the Holy Spirit singing to you?” He went on to reflect that perhaps the Holy Spirit was using the text and music to send a particular message to me. Boom! Mind blown!
Prior to that conversation, I tolerated earworms, even the more annoying ones. After that, I started paying attention to them. What message did the earworm carry? What word of grace was being sung to me?
