This week, I served at a conference for ministry leaders and their families in the mountains of North Carolina. During one of the nightly sermons that was going really well, the preacher decided to use a sports analogy to make a theological point. He began with the Dallas Cowboys and turned the sacred space into a man cave. Many of the men were upset about the example and I was confused by it. He lost me right after Dallas Cowboys. What season? What was his name again?
But, Mike Frost’s article made a lot of sense to me and provided the answer to a question that I didn’t even know how to ask. In his article “A tale of two Christianities on its knees,” Frost compares the two Christianities that are being expressed by two football players whose names I do know– Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick. Both have taken a knee on the field but for very different reasons. One is praised and the other is scorned.
