Many of us citizens are appalled and angered over the changes being forced upon us over the WOKE culture. Our food labels, businesses and various other changes being demanded by these people. I recently heard one person say our constitution is racist. As I reflect back I first noticed the change over 35 years ago in the church we were attending. We came in one Sunday and I noticed the hymnals were all new. I didn't pay much attention until I also noticed that many of the old hymns were not included in the new version.
I then noticed the new hymnals made no reference to gender. God rest you merry gentleman was now God rest you merry persons. As I thumbed through the hymnal I noticed my favorite hymn was gone. I used to read that hymn to myself before any service to focus on why I was really there. I never heard it sung but the words had an impact on me. It was written by a philosopher and Bishop in early times: Synesius 375-430 AD. I asked about the old hymnals and was told they were in the back to be thrown out. I ask if I could have one and was told I could have them all if I wanted. I went back and took the 417th hymn out and taped it in my bible and I read it often.
