Good morning, I'm the Rev'd Steven Page, from St Patrick's Anglican Church. August is a big month for sports. The Canadian Football League is in full swing, while south of the border the American pro and college leagues are in full pre-season training camp mode. Baseball is in full swing, with the pennant races heating up. Golf season is at its peak, and the pros will play one of the Majors mid-month. And oh yeah, the Olympics are in full swing in London, England.
With all this sports activity, our daily devotional moments for August will draw our images and metaphors from the world of sports, with an occasional assist from the book “Devotionals from the World of Sports” by John and Kathy Hillman. If you miss any of these devotionals, we will post them online on our blog at plaideggnog.blogspot.com, and on YouTube.
Now, I don't know about you, but I am spending some of my spare time these days watching the Olympic Games from London. I love the national colours, the excitement, the pride, the best efforts from so many fine athletes.
