OPENING PRAYER KANSAS STATE SENATE

 

This is an interesting prayer given in KANSAS at the opening session of their Senate. It seems prayer still upsets some people. When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session of the KANSAS SENATE, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard:

THE HAWK AND THE TURTLE

I had thoughts of doubt about the whole thing. How did Jane know that red-tailed hawk was showing her the direction we were to travel? Why not me? After all, I'm the Indian! This day was to be a test...

And wintertime has just begun.

 

But when the sun again arose,

A scene no artist could compose,
