Baseball. The smell of freshly cut grass, hot dogs, and broken-in leather. The sound of chatter in the stands, the crack of the bat, the call of the umpire to “Play Ball!” The sight of a lazy fly ball, a perfectly executed double play, and a base runner in a pickle. The feel of the red laces on your fingers, a glove in your hand, and the buzz of the bat when it meets the ball.
What do these things have to do with our Christian faith?
In our next series, “The Bible and Baseball,” we will look at different scriptures that relate to various aspects of our spiritual journey and the game of baseball. In talking about what it takes to follow Jesus, the Apostle Paul used the analogy of a runner racing to win a prize. We’ll use the game of baseball. Bring a friend and enjoy this fun series as we talk about “The Bible and Baseball.”
