the wisdom of sports radio

on today’s felger and massarotti show, mazz quoted someone who noted that “baseball is a game of exposure.” he was not using that quote to refer to david cone but to explain that baseball’s six days a week, 162 game schedule eventually obliterates fluke success and exposes a player’s true value.

the further i walk, stumble and crawl, the more i realize that ministry is an act of exposure. the more my infinitesimal understanding of God’s righteousness and damn near infinite knowledge of my own inconsistencies grow, the more i am exposed as a fragmented man, a well established hypocrite, a broken bucket through which God’s beauty, truth and goodness only intermittently flows.

all the more reason to be grateful for, and utterly overwhelmed by, God’s grace.
