  1. I love this question: “Do we tell the stories of athletics that promote the flourishing of the kingdom or is it simply a win-loss record? ”

    I have heard many stories that DO this, but they are rarely told. Compliments from referees on classy demeanor at games. Opposing team’s booster club president appreciating the teams playing well together, despite it being competition, after the team experienced tragedy. And often, there are stories that take time to be told, such as an email years later from the time the athlete played for a coach saying that he now understood what he didn’t understand then.

    1. We tend to get caught up in the win-loss moment and forget that these other efforts, such as the ones you highlight, are the lasting ones, moments that give evidence of Kingdom flourishing. Thanks, Kelly, for sharing some examples of how we can create culture within the wide world of sports.
