Beijing to host Christian athletes
With the Olympics on my mind (is everybody else counting down as well?), I was delighted to get an interesting report about Christian athletes competing in the Summer Olympics set to begin Friday in Beijing, China.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes sent out “The Heart And Soul in Sports” report today, which lists some of those athletes and their comments about their faith.
Included in the FCA report is NBA star Michael Redd. The Milwaukee Bucks guard said: “Since I’ve had the Lord Jesus Christ in my life, miraculous things have happened to me. I just thank God every day for Him blessing me and showing me favor when I’m not worthy of any of that. I keep Him first and I’m diligent in keeping Him first.”
Incidentally, Redd was already on my mind because we just found out today that the Bucks will play the new Oklahoma City NBA team in the latter’s season opener in October at the Ford Center.
