After our experience at Pinehurst last year, we were, no, ok, I, was hoping to have an updated version of our outreach. It just didn't happen. Why?
I have come to understand that what happens or doesn't happen is dependent upon God. Pretty good statement, huh? Seriously. I mention my heart up at the top and I truly believe that my heart wanted to conduct an outreach at the US Open at Chambers Bay, but, there was absolutely no interest from anyone else I know and I was unable to coordinate a cross-country effort to partner with churches, para-ministries and anyone else. The effort was so Herculean, I wasn't even able to begin it. So, I believe the Lord didn't want it to happen.
But, what might be happening for the Lord at Chambers Bay this week?
I did a cursory Google search and could not find anything of a large magnitude where it would have come up in Google. What did come up was our site, go figure, from our US Open outreach from last year. That was encouraging, but, what about this year?
My mind begins to race relative to the conduct of ministerial outreach in a modern format, ie, what if we could, indeed, discover the connections with pastors, teachers, evangelistic Believers, chaplains, PGA Tour Players (Bubba, Ricky, Ben Crane, Hunter, Jordan, etc.), Caddies, administrators, managers, the members of College Golf Fellowship, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and on and on and on whether attending or paying attention to the US Open from afar?
Just ideas, but, sure would like to see the Lord honored at these major golf events, and, even lesser events just as long as the Lord is edified and those the Lord is seeking have an opportunity to hear the Gospel.
The fields of golf are ripe for the harvest.
