Nelson Ledges Chaplain’s Notes - At SPA  

Back in the day (late 60’s or early 70’s) Sports Illustrated, yes Sports Illustrated, published an article with artist renderings some of the most difficult corners in auto racing. I bought two copies because some of the pictures were back to back and I wanted to put them up on my dorm room walls at Ohio State. Two of the corners, the Masta Kink and Burnenville, were from the original configuration of a Formula One Course I would definitely like to visit, the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in the Ardennes Forest in Belgium. The natural beauty of the area looks spectacular. For history, both racing and world, few can match.

Nelson Ledges Chaplain’s Notes  December 2009                                  
It’s that time of year when we think of toys for all the good little girls and boys. And maybe there will be some toys for some not “always good” big girls and boys. I am convinced that most racers like their stuff. Sometimes it is their racecar itself, a thing of beauty and speed. Other times it is their tools, enough that could keep even the most highly strung machine purring like a kitten. Maybe it is trophies they won or the winner’s cap or checkered flag. The photographs of victories, defeats or maybe just being out there competing are a treasure to most. (I think I looked great in my picture in that $ 1,500 borrowed Hankook driver’s suit at the Nelson LeMons race.) For those who are more in the spectator mode it may be models of their favorite races cars or a print of a famous victory. Racers and stuff seem to go together.

The Performance Racing Industry Show is right around the corner, Dec. 10th to be exact. It is a time when industry personal gather to talk with the many vendors and establish “deals” for the upcoming season. But for some it is a time to wander the isles.

As I am reading through Exodus the Israelites have just left Egypt. We know the story… they would wander for the next 40 years because they would not obey God; really they would not trust Him. Clearly we can see their foolishness; blindly I can not see mine, which brings me to my point.

Off-season is here and there are many giants in the land that must be dealt with. We struggle with our jobs, finances and maybe with our relationships. It is easy to wander the halls of ones mind searching, no dare say I, ignoring the giants. But we have the end of the story written out for us. We know that those who trust upon the Lord will win. We do not have to wander aimlessly but we can journey through the isles God wants us to walk without wandering!

Oh, and slay a few giants along the way!
