I had heard the complaint before in other places, at other times.
"I struggle with wanting my child to participate in summer Little League baseball and still have time for our family events, not to mention participation in church," the concerned mother told me over the phone. "It just seems like we can't do it all."
In her particular situation, baseball games were being scheduled not only on Sundays, but on Sunday mornings - a definite conflict for Christians who want their family to worship together. As a parent, and as a pastor, I understood.
