Brian is playing basketball with Upward, a Christian sports program. This is our first experience with this program and so far, we love it. One of the things I am most impressed with is the way the coaches weave Biblical teachings into the paractices and games and it doesn't just stop with the players. During half-time, someone from the chuch's congregation shares a devotiion with the crowd.
Today a man spoke and something he said has stayed with me all day. He was saying that he knew the pressures parents face today to raise dynamic-to-the-world children who are excellent athletes that perfect their craft at an early age. He went on to say that the goal should be to lead these kids to be the next Peter's and Paul's, not Lebron James.
I so needed to hear that.
