Was scanning your blogs and this one caught my eye. I wrestle with the sports thing, not in relation to watching it on TV (OK maybe a little when it comes to the Red Sox), but in relationship to my kids participation. I coach my one son’s basketball team and my other son’s baseball team. It’s a chance to connect with my sons and touch the community, yet we have some weeks that we are out 4 or more days between coaching or watching their games. Ah that balance thing…hahaha Do your kids play sports? If so, how do you manage it.
I am at an exciting point in my life in which I am seeing God’s kingdom more clearly than I ever have. I serve and I am reay to serve more because I believe that every act of service done with faith is part of His Kingdom coming and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
BTW, I am a pastor and a former youth pastor. I took my youth group with AIM to Ensenada way back in 1996 and just this past summer, I took 16 people from my church now to West Virginia.
