Baseball and Church

ImageLast night, we had some tickets to a Pirates baseball game and I began to think about how a baseball game is similar to a church service. In some ways, it was more like a church than a church is. Think about this…. People gathered for a common purpose. We stood for the national anthem and asked people to show respect by taking off their hats. No one complained that this song was old-fashioned and should be more “modern.” And then about 2 hours into the game, everyone stood up for a “congregational” song where the only musical instrument was an organ!

I guess a big difference, though, is that at church no one takes drinks beer, takes off their shirts, or yells insults at the person on stage. If that did happen at church, though, I bet people would never miss another Sunday.
