Let’s consider something together. Think about sports. From spectator to participant it seems almost everyone is impacted. From armchair to the field of play the spirit rises or falls and emotions ranging from elation to sadness are experienced in an instant as hopes are either dashed or realized.
Participation in training for competition or in training for health changes us dramatically. Transformation occurs physically, mentally, and emotionally. The gains and victories are almost as beneficial as the losses and disappointments.
Sports can be a tool for the benefit of many, if used with that end in mind. That is what I would like for you to consider through this blog. I will share my experiences in sport development in Africa and elsewhere. I will try, but cannot promise to be eloquent, deep, or comedic; but by God’s grace I will tell some great stories and share things that I’ve observed over time. Hopefully it will at least be a provoking read and at best you will celebrate along with me how God can use something such as sport to grow our faith in Christ.
