FROM THE PULPIT: Never give up

Published: Monday, January 14, 2013 at 04:59 PM.

The shortstop threw the ball to first base. I stared incredulously as the ball sailed beyond the first baseman’s reach. 

An overthrow! 

An error! 

With a sudden burst of energy, I hightailed it the rest of the way to first base and arrived safely.

The team coach was also working as the first base coach that game. He walked up to me as I recovered from my astonishment and said, “See what I told you? Don’t ever give up!”

I have remembered those words and that lesson. And I share them with you: don’t ever give up!
