Message: "Strike! You're out!"
Referees and gardeners are great examples of God. Referees and gardeners don't make the rules. They don't play the game or grow the veggies, they order the playing field/garden to promote growth so flourishing takes place. Bad things happen to mess up the order of things, but referees and gardeners help get the conditions right. God calls us to be referees and gardeners, co-laboring with him for the life of the world.
