Sports Ministry

The most recent issue of Christianity Today (February 5, 2010) has an entire lineup of sports ministry related articles. For my Sport Ministry people, take a serious look at these - and notice our buddy Ted Kluck is here.

The Joy of Sports

Amen, and a Foul

Sports Fanatics

Also, Pastor and Blogger Kevin DeYoung has just posted a response to the the main CT article (Sports Fanatics); you can read is post here: A Simpler View at Sports.

In the article he writes: "And yet, I recognize sports talk is only the shallow end of the pool. More than that, I am fearful of the place sports can occupy in my heart. As a pastor, I want the folks in my congregation to give their lives for something more meaningful than youth soccer leagues and the triumphs of fandom. I am not blind to the idolatries of sport and the failings of sport stars. But, still, I am a huge sports fan."
