The sites and sounds of CHRIST-mas reach a long way, but today I was struck with just how far is the reach of this unique holy-day. Sure, I expect to see at least a few nativity scenes on display, even in disputed territory. Christmas carols are also ubiquitous, including in Burger Kings and Wendys. For some reason, though, hearing the words to O Holy Night in a thruway mens room really made an impression.
Thats a lot of religion for a public toilet, but it really fits. After all, Jesus was not born in a palace or a resort. The Savior made His debut in a pretty earthy setting. A stall for farm animals is generally marked by a distinctive odor, not different from a roadside john.

Just as it is with the songs about that first Christmas, no place is off limits for the Christ who is the center of those songs. Youll find Him present in the most gritty, grimy and stinky places of life.

I havent heard a tear-jerking testimony about a toilet-stall conversion, yet, but I expect I will before I go to Heaven. I know that beautiful hymn must have touched some hearts today in the mens roomI just didnt have the nerve to ask anybody to raise his hand . . .

There are no words...................

1. Does Jesus have a "wide-stance" too?
Just curious.

2. Please don't raise your hand until you wash it first.
If Jesus could do away with those gigantic rolls of TP that tear off in little bitty shreds, he might be on to something.
