Without question, obviously members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and members of Emanuel Lutheran Church do not share identical beliefs, just as neither faith agrees with every single tenet of other churches. But don’t we agree on more than enough to love one another, to respect one another and to serve one another?
One day the score will be forgotten and few will remember how many hits they had or what highlight-worthy plays they made in the field. Once again, no one will have counted balls or strikes because, in the end, it's only the effort that matters.
What will be remembered is who showed up to play and, more importantly, that as Christians, we know we’re all playing on the same team anyway.
And, honestly, we're playing for the same coach, too.
