The musical, “GODSPELL” opened last night here in Kansas City at Starlight, our outdoor summer theatre. It is encouraging to see so many people going to this musical to hear about God, Jesus, John the Baptist, the good Samaritan and so much more from the Gospels in Sacred Scripture.
Two popular songs from this musical are “Prepare Ye the Way of the Lord,” and “Day by Day.” So my reflection is from these two songs. In the midst of summer, preparing the way of the Lord and praying day by day. I believe that to prepare the Way of the Lord is to commit to the lyrics in the second song, “Day by Day” to see Jesus more clearly, to love Him more dearly and to follow Him more nearly. And because of these we can end our musical tribute with “ALL GOD’S GIFTS”. We are blessed and are grateful.
