We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
2 Cor. 10:5
Today I had the distinct honor of going into the Seattle Tennis Club, “an exclusive, multi-faceted family club which proudly offers its membership an array of athletic, dining and social opportunities.” I’m sure my net worth is far too low to qualify me for membership; besides, to become a member, you have to be recommended by a member of two years’ standing. It was quite the place.
I went there not to play tennis, mind you, but to liberate two panniers full of old, bounceless balls. A Bicycle Alliance board member who is an avid tennis player (almost made it to the national championships this year) gave me the in. What took him one phone call could have taken me days of begging and pleading. What will a bicycle organization do with two panniers’-worth of tennis balls? You can guess, and if you give up, here’s the answer.
Even though tennis balls are mostly air, hauling both panniers full of them sure felt heavy.
