Golfers, skiers, and life

When you swing
On a tee,
Or step on a slope
To ski,
Or try to live free,
If you don't
Choose to focus
You'll fail.

In golf, skying, and life, you can’t control the hazards, but you can call the shots. You can increase and develop your skills for living.

On a golf course and in life, peaceful swings are more potent than panicked swings. Instead of letting life’s downward pull defeat you, be like a skier & let it propel you on a joyous ride.

Life pays the green fee, but you have to swing the club. Life pays for the lift ticket, but you have steer down the slope.

Church is like the ski lodge or the club house. Its purpose should be to empower people to hit the slopes and play the course.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
