Play Ball! Or Not?

You are in a tough situation.  You play baseball and are one of the star players on the team.  Your team has done so well that you may be able to go to the playoffs.  You have one game left and it is against your main rivals.  The winner of the game will get to go to the playoffs.  Unfortunately, the game is on Wednesday night.  You know you should not miss church services but the coach tells you this is an important game and the team is depending on you.  He reminds you that everyone has worked so hard this season to have the opportunity to go to the playoffs.  “After all,” he says, “what will missing just one service hurt?”

  1. If you did not go, what would you tell your coach?
  2. If you did not go, what would you tell your team?

I have a wide range of interests and am not easily bored so I approach unfamiliar and diverse subjects with great zeal. I am a business nerd, fascinated by what can be accomplished through innovative companies and people who want to change the world. My faith is very important and I enjoy opportunities to share my observations and study insights through teaching and writing. I follow the simple teachings of Jesus and try to reflect His glory in my life. I work with young people on applying the teachings of Jesus to their unique challenges and opportunities.
