In Kansas

February 7, 2012 — Leave a comment

A little while ago when I was in the states, I went to a little restaurant and when I looked around. I said to myself, “Toto, I’m not in Kansas anymore.”**



But last year, here in Kansas, I sat in the dentist’s chair, listening to “Jesus, King of Glory” coming out of the speakers. How often do you hear praise music for an hour at the dentist’s in your country?

A few days later I sat at a restaurant and listened to a rousing rendition of Oh Happy Day**. It’s the song that goes:
“Oh Happy day, when Jesus washed, when Jesus washed,
oh when He washed, oh when He washed, He washed my sins away.”**

Yet I was surrounded by people whose government forbids them to do that.
That’s Kansas for you.



Scenes I’ve recently seen in Kansas

**The scene in The Wizard of Oz where Dorothy says, “We’re not in Kansas.”

**This is actually the second time I’ve heard O Happy Day here. The other time was at a restaurant down south, ten years ago.

Oh happy day, Oh happy day
When Jesus washed
Oh when he washed
He washed my sins away
He taught me how
to watch, fight and pray
fight and pray
Oh happy day, Oh happy day
When Jesus washed
Oh when he washed
He washed my sins away
We´ll live rejoicing
ev´ry day, ev´ry day
Oh happy day, Oh happy day
When Jesus washed
Oh when he washed
He washed my sins away

This week’s special:
“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”
“Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
“I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”

Luke 19:38-40
