Forum: Faith, Sports and Our Values

On Super Bowl Sunday we will discuss the role of sports in our American culture and how that role aligns with our Christian values. The conversation will be facilitated by Mary Esther Schnaubelt and use, as a jumping off point, the 2014 Thoughtful Christian lesson on football. This lesson focuses on the domestic abuse crisis that received a lot of attention at that time. Our discussion will also touch on more current issues – the return to sports during COVID, the dominating role of athletics in our high schools and colleges, and the association of sports with nationalism and Christianity. We hope you will join us for a lively discussion!
