My family couldn’t sing together this pandemic Christmas. So we each sang at home, and my brother put us together into a virtual choir. Being unmusical in a musical family, I appreciated being invited into the choir, knowing my blunders would be hidden by better voices.
Watching our choir during our Zoom-call Christmas gathering, I recalled an old, old proverb: Love covers a multitude of sins. And I wondered what would happen if we all extended this kind of grace to each other in this next year.
