Yes, this is the Deep South and you probably thought professional baseball finished Labor Day weekend. It didn’t, though, and if you were paying attention you’d know the New York Mets’ Daniel Murphy is having a postseason that is truly historic.
In Wednesday night’s clincher that swept the Cubs – a team New York hadn’t beaten all year – Murphy hit his sixth home run in as many postseason games. Though Murphy had a high of 14 home runs this season, he averaged 58 plate appearances per dinger. In these playoffs he’s needed six for every homer. Murphy had been an important part if his team’s success, but nothing to this degree. At a time least expected, he showed a power surge and suddenly became not just important but indespensible.
Let’s admit it: While all ministries in a church are important, some get a little more stage time than others. They’re more recognizable and seem to be easier to draw volunteers. What are the volunteer positions that may fly under the radar? Which ones have a tendency to get overlooked until that day when they really shine? In short, which ones are the Daniel Murphy of your church?
