Off to San Francisco — Worlds Far Apart

As a pastor, I am about to experience two very different worlds in a matter of hours.

The first world was a dream for me. I performed a wedding for a couple in the Minnesota Twins ballpark, Target Field. I am a huge baseball fan, so being able to walk on the field, sit in the dugout, etc., was a lot of fun. The reception in one of the fabulous guest services reception areas was amazing. When we exited the facility we were taken through a club level where only original season ticket owners to the new field had passes. There were places I got to go I certainly won’t get to see any other time I go to the game. It was a fun day.

The second world will come less than 48 hours later. I will be in San Francisco with our team of pastors serving in the Tenderloin District. San Francisco itself is, of course, a world class city, but the Tenderloin District is… well… NOT. We will be serving a mission there and help in any way they want to reach out to the cast-offs of our society.

We will be there all week, but I won’t be taking my computer, so blogging will be a minimum effort for the time there. I hope to have some thoughts on the trip when I get back.

    1. Joe, I’m fairly sure where we’re going won’t have very many vacation spots for you. 😉

      But we hope to hit a couple of tourist spots. I am sad to report that we will NOT being going to a Giants game, which has already ruined the trip for me. lol

  1. May you all be both blessed in Christ and be a rich blessing to those in and serving the Tenderloin District.
