  1. I liked reading your blog and would love to offer you a free MLB Fathead JR wall pin up in exchange for a post.  Email me back if you’re interested.

  2. You make some very good points, and church is often now simple a spectator sport. As someone who leads worship and also teaches others to lead praise and worship in churches across the world (so feel free to check out my site), I feel that it is our job to change this so we experience community, no a baseball match

  3. Long lines for alcohol indeed. What a handsome stadium that is. In fact, I think I recognize the team logo …

    Keep up the good work.
