I don’t write much about sport on here. It’s not that I don’t enjoy sport. I very much enjoy playing sport. I’m just not much into following sport. I’m far more interested in the starting line up of the Justice League than I am in the run on squad of the Wallabies.
But sport is part of the national culture of Australia. Growing up, I spent every Saturday during the footy season either playing football or hanging around the field as my brothers played. For many Australians it would be a very similar story, whether it be soccer, netball, nippers, whatever. It’s a massive part of the Australian life, but one that is relatively untapped by Christian ministry. That’s what I’m excited about the work being done by Sydney Sports Coalition.
