“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.”

Ted Kluck

The Declaration’s affirmation of sport as a divine gift, and its call for Christians to be a faithful presence in sport, are timely and important. As sport occupies an ever more important place in our cultural landscape and presents a microcosm of our world’s problems and opportunities, it is vital that Christians enter into a positive, critical and nuanced dialogue with all those involved in this ‘God-honouring pursuit.’ The Declaration should be supported by all those with an interest in reflecting on faith, sport, and faith and sport.”
