Well did anyone tap you on the shoulder at church yesterday? It seems like that happens a lot, Lol.

Happy Ash Wednesday, all.

It's the first time I've posted Yasiel's bat since Yasiel left the Dodgers, but what can I say? I still like it. Smile

I think it is appropriate that Ash Wednesday always falls right around the time preseason games start. Smile

NOTICE: The Church of Baseball will be closed until further notice due to COVID-19. Sad

I thought as much. Palm Sunday will surely not be postponed though?

It occurred to me last week that, not only did I not bump this one up on May 31 for Pentecost, but there may be a hidden lesson in this particular Pentecost Sunday.

First, while I did wear blue, it was the first Pentecost in which I haven't attended church (for obvious reasons) that I can remember. I always enjoy celebrating the "birth of the church."

Second, since this includes remembering the speaking of tongues from the Biblical description...all I can say is, evidently the tongues between the MLBPA and the owners are still foreign to each other as of this writing. LOL

And since I haven't posted here since October 27, when the Dodgers won the World Series, I think now is a perfect time! The Church of Baseball is rejoicing! Very Happy

After missing the Presidents Day bump, I'm not going to lag twice in one week...so, for Ash Wednesday.

And so, now, it's time to visit my "other" church...which I've been away from far too long in the pandemic! Smile

Well, Cathy knows this since I told her about it earlier, but haven't posted:

Our church celebrated its 115th anniversary last week. (I'm one of the co-historians.)

So when I was asked for a few comments by another congregant, all I could think of was:

"Pray for the Dodgers."

LOL

The next question is will they still be in need of prayer this Sunday?
