The 400 Club
When a baseball player hits his 400th home run, it is a big deal…practically guaranteeing him a spot in Cooperstown (note to you non-baseball fans…Cooperstown, NY is where the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame is located). Well, this may not be as big of a deal, and I doubt it will get me into the “Blog Writer’s Hall of Fame,” but today is a milestone because today is my 400th blog posting. I bet you didn’t even realize I was counting. After all, numbers aren’t supposed to be important to a godly pastor, right? Oops, I guess that’s the topic for a whole other blog, isn’t it (Hey, give me a break…I should be allowed some latitude for sarcasm in my 400th blog entry, shouldn’t I?)?
Well, just in case I do get elected to the prestigious “Blog Writer’s Hall of Fame,” let me offer some trivia about my blog in case you need information because you are asked to give my inaugural introduction:
