I don’t care for Tony LaRussa. Why? Because he beat the Cubs far too many times. My wife is a Cardinal fan. What that means is she enjoys each season and I have to wait “until next year.” (Which by the way does seem more promising to me thanks to Theo Epstein showing up to Chicago).
But, I have to admit – what a way to go out! Win the World Series and then pass the baton off to someone else.
I don’t know what the ministerial equivalent is of this – but I want to find it. Go out on top.
I wonder how many churches are out there that love their Pastor and appreciate the years of service he/she put in but are hoping and praying that he/she will pass the baton to breath new life and vision into the church?
Go out on top.
