God, Family Time and Sports

I enjoy sports as much as or maybe even a little more than the average person.  Sports have been an important part of my life since I was a small child playing on my grade school teams.

I am concerned about the way sports have taken over Sunday mornings and family holidays such as Fourth of July just to name one!

Sunday morning should be set aside for those who take time to worship God.  What a message we send when we choose sports over God!

My niece plays club volleyball and I have asked her to vote with her feet and let her coaches know at the beginning of the season that she plans to be with family on the Fourth of July, and Labor Day, and Mothers Day, and Fathers Day…

A Bishop in Iowa has taken on the topic which I appreciate.  I encourage all of us to follow his lead and take back Sunday mornings, family holidays and religious education time!
