Faith And The Olympics

Aaron Neff has sent me a link to a website that contains the faith stories of some of the Olympians – US and otherwise.  You can see and hear these stories here.

I’ve just written an article for our newsletter talking about why I love the Olympics – the quest for excellence/desire for glory – and these faith stories are good examples. It’s good to see and hear that there’s more than one kind of gold that’s being pursued by these athletes.

I want to remember that the next time I grouse about how much $$ professionals are paid!

FYI – Aaron works with Athletes In Action; you can email him here: aaron.neff@athletesinaction.org
