Vision and Mission 2016

July 27, 2016

Summer is finally here. We will have Andrew Smith and some special guitar accompanied solo music from our University of Washington Law professor, Bob Gomulkiewicz.  I will talk about "second chances."

As a boy, when I was in Little League, the local baseball teams participated in a Baseball Festival of Competition on a Saturday afternoon.  I was selected to represent our team in running around the bases for the best time.  I was fast in those days -- really fast.  When my turn to run came, dressed in my full uniform, the judge set me behind home plate to compete with the other little league representatives.  With stopwatch in hand, the judge sent me off with the word, "Go!"  I screamed around first and was rounding second at an extremely fast pace, when all of a sudden my baseball cap flew off my head.  Immediately I stopped, turned back to retrieve my hat, and then plowed forward to finish my course at home plate.  The man with the stopwatch said, "Your pace was very fast. Too bad you stopped to pick up your hat."  I said, "Please, let me try again. I thought I had to have my whole uniform on me when I crossed home plate."  He said, "Sorry son, no one gets a second chance." 

I never forgot that disappointment.  With God, there are second chances.  Can you recall any "second chances" you were given in your life?  Let's talk about it on Sunday.
