I'm sitting here in the Comfort Inn in Batavia, New York, grateful that there was one (1) room left between Buffalo and Syracuse on Interstate 90 and I was able to snag it. After dozens of calls (my cell phone bill will be outrageous) I was feeling like Joseph must have felt the night the promised Messiah was born. Everything was SOLD OUT and I was beginning to think that I would spend the night in my car.
After a good night's rest I'm preparing to leave for Auburn, NY where I will speak at a community chapel service at the ballpark. The Auburn Doubledays are the rookie league affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. Each year the ballclub works in co-operation with Baseball Chapel to provide this outreach. Fans from the community are admitted to the ballpark free if they bring along their church bulletin.
I've already found a room for tonight in Syracuse so I can relax. There WILL be "room in the inn"!
