Those clever theologians at Asbury United Methodist Church in Prairie Village are at it again with their Royal interpretations. Last week, the church at 75th and Nall had heads turning with its Billy Butler sign: “Thou shalt not steal. Unless you are Billy Butler.” That commemorated the unlikely base stealing of Butler, not the fastest Royal around, during a playoff game with the Angels.
Shortly after the Royals clinched a spot in the World Series this week, the sign changed. This time it reads: “Behold! I bring you good news: A Royals World Series!” Some fans may believe Kansas City to be witnessing an event of biblical proportions. We can’t wait to see the final installment of the re-interpreted verse – which is not likely to be King James either. We hope it has something to do with crowns.
