Super Bowl Sunday
For the second year in a row, the Super Bowl provided our church Super Bowl party with a very exciting game and a heart-stopping finish. This time, it was the WRONG finish, but it was exciting. The game was so good that it was hard to find the time to run back to the food table to replenish supplies (of course, I found the time).
We were on pins and needles through the first half of the game, and not because of the game. We had a camera crew and reporter from WAVY TV-10 here filming us watching the game! The hook was the Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin went to high school next door at Denbigh High, so we were there all pulling for the home boy. Actually, the reporter thought that Tomlin had gone to church here, which (to my knowledge) he hadn’t. Any way, we got some press out of the deal. They left after the first half... right before our devotional time. They missed the best part!
Our devotional at halftime talked about serving God and giving Him glory no matter where we are or what we are doing. Kurt Warner, Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu and many other players talked about God in their pre-and-post-game comments. We need to know that God is with us at our work even if we aren't NFL players and our job happens to be the Super Bowl. Maybe that was what we should have gotten our of the camera crew... people watch us whatever we are doing all the time and we either bring God glory or we don’t.
BTW, for the second year in a row, Tressa was there at the big game. Actually, she wasn’t at the game this year. She was there with Courtney for all the gala, pageantry and parties before and after the game. I gotta talk to that girl about her priorities.
