The Cross is in the Ball Park

This song has been on my mind this week–even though I haven’t thought about it for years. Out of the blue, it started playing in my head a couple of days ago and it hasn’t left my iPod since.  Perhaps Paul Simon’s lyrics have a lot more resonance for me now that I’m pushing 40. Perhaps I’ve simply become more convinced that, yes, the cross is in the ball park: Christ is present in the everyday, in mundane events and experiences, in places we don’t expect (and rarely look for) Him to be alive and at work.  Whatever the reason, I hope as you listen it will add renewed rhythm and energy to your faith journey this day–as it has to mine.  These songs are true. These days are ours. The cross is in the ball park. Why deny the obvious, child?
