No, it’s Louisville

What a week it has been. Not only have I learned a ton about
ministry, but I have experienced some of the greatest spiritual friendship I’ve
enjoyed in some time. God is good. One of the highlights of my trip into the
wilderness has been the Louisville Slugger museum and factory in downtown Louisville. As a baseball
fan, there isn’t much this side of Cooperstown that’s funner.

After taking my hacks in the batting cage, and watching a Roger
Clemens fastball in their pitching simulator, we got an opportunity to study
Louisville Slugger’s business model, and hang out in the boardroom/office of
the CEO

The climax…I was surprised to receive a custom made “Tim
Spivey” Louisville Slugger signed by the CEO of the company. Is this heaven?
No, it’s Louisville.

 Also, I bowled a 204 the first game I’ve played in a few
years. I won’t tell you that I bowled a 117 the second game due to the fact
that the bowling gods had turned against me and my hand was in excruciating
pain…due to being fat and out of shape.

 Still, it’s been all good. Tonight, I got to sit with my
friends and Bob and Judy Russell at the Southeast Christian Church Easter
Pageant. We were among the 80,000+ that are going to see it over the next two
weeks. Super cool. I talk some more about some of our learnings later. For now…the
fellowship is most on my mind.

Dr. Tim Spivey is Lead Planter of New Vintage Church in San Diego, California. He is the author of numerous articles and one book, "Jesus: The Powerful Servant." A sought after speaker for events, Tim also serves as Adjunct Professor of Religion at Pepperdine University. Tim serves as a church consultant, and his writings are featured on ChurchLeaders.com, Church Executive magazine, Faith Village, Sermon Central, and Giving Rocket.

  1. Louisville Slugger bats are the coolest things ever! My sister went there on a chorus trip in college and got me a little Louisville Slugger bat. One of my favorite gifts I’ve ever gotten. I hope and pray your time in Louisville continues to go well. God bless!
