Blast from the past
Remember that old Tom Landry comic book, about the Dallas Cowboys’ head coach, that was popular in Christian circles about 30 years ago? Well, this Dallas/Fort Worth News-Telegram story recaptures the efforts behind the comic book and takes a look at the man.
Faith and sports
This PennLive article compares faith, life and sports and how they intersect and the lessons we can learn from sports. Here’s one quote from the story.
“[The] Steelers teach us what a team really is because they rely on each other. When I go to work, I’m part of a team, too. When Harrison ran 100 yards, he didn’t do it alone. His teammates helped. We all need help.”
This is a nice, very short story on OSU’s James Laurinaitis and his role model father and lessons he learned from the professional wrestler.
I learned something reading this story (not that that’s unusual). One of the keys to Tebow’s returning for his senior year was if he could help raise funds for his Dad’s orphanage in the Philippines. Once again, Tebow has found himself the subject of a sermon/column.
Nothing spiritual in this story except the life former N.C. State women’s basketball coach Kay Yow led. The story describes the team’s final game.
This NBA guard/forward is making a difference in impoverished communities, according to this Baptist Press story.
This Wizard is also a preacher. Story is laid out poorly, not overly well-written, but there’s some GREAT info in there.
