HELEN'S GARNDMOTHER WENT TO A LITTLE COUNTRY TOWN TO VISIT
RELATIVES. THE GRANDMOTHER AND GRANDFATHER WENT TO CHURCH
IN THAT LITTLE TOWN ON SUNDAY. RIGHT BEFORE THE SERVICE
THE PEOPLE FOUND THAT HELEN'S GRANDMOTHER WAS AN ORGANIST.
SHE WAS ASKED TO PLAY THE ORGAN FOR THE SERVICE. SHE WENT
UP TO THE ORGAN AND THE PREACHER TOLD THE CONGREGATION
THAT THEY WOULD NOW SING A HYMN. THE CONGREGATION SAT THERE
QUIETLY, THE PREACHER STOOD THERE QUIETLY, AND HELEN'S
GRANDMOTHER SAT THERE QUIETLY. THE PREACHER DIDN'T
ANNOUNCE THE HYMN TITLE OR NUMBER. FINALLY, HELEN'S
GRANDMOTHER STARTED A FAMILIAR HYMN, AND EVERYONE STARTED TO
SING.
