“The Declaration on Sport and the Christian Life is a provocative call to all Christians involved in sports to practice our kingdom commitment and values. I am thrilled to endorse the Declaration. It is my hope and prayer that Christ followers will heed this call to reflect His kingdom in and through the world of sports.
“Sports have been the setting for some of my most joyful times, and also, sadly, many of my most embarrassing as God has mercifully pulled back the curtain on my selfish ambition and idolatry. The Declaration helps us to see these endeavors through a Gospel lens – as players, coaches, and parents – so that instead of paying lip service to playing our sport ‘to the glory of God’ we can actually have a shot at doing so.”
