Football-like Activity

CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith from a Place of Winter for the Years of Winter… ©

Recently I heard a football coach explain why his very talented team did not win very much. “They are very good,” he said, “at running around the field, doing football-like activities, but they don’t really play football.”

I’m afraid that explains the decline of the church. We run around the place doing Christian-like activities, but we don’t really live Christian.

The “place of winter” mentioned in the title line is Iron Mountain, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula [The UP], where life is defined by winter even in the summer! [This phrase is explained in the post for March 20, 2014.]
