Check out this linked story from the Dallas Morning News. Can you believe that this historic event is followed by such an episode? Three men in history have hit 700 or more home runs and what are we writing about? A lawsuit. Is this what we as a society have morphed into? Chasing our dreams through other people’s success. Finding ourselves waiting around (for a baseball in this case) hoping that good things will just naturally fall into our lap that we miss life? And when it doesn’t happen we blame others. From this day on, choose to live in the moment and be determined to make a difference for you, your family, neighbors, co-workers, and the rest of society. God would not have us do anything less.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past twelve years. My wife Susan and I have three children: Madelyn, Marshall and Melisa. When we aren't attending a ballet or ballgame somewhere, you can find us...oh who am I kidding... this season of life always finds us at a ballgame (Marshall and Melisa) or a ballet (somewhat less now that Madelyn is living in Anapolis, MD.). The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
