“…heaven rejoices when one unpleasant sinner repents.  This begs a question: do we rejoice when a sinner repents? Is it our joy to play a role in helping a person draw close to God?  I am not talking about your child or your relative… I am talking about the person who stands next to you week after week in the sanctuary, the person who sings out of tune, the person who just rubs you the wrong way.”
