Goal Tending (Easter)

Setting Family Standards

Excerpt from the transcript…

“Talking about the family? On Easter? Isnt that a little bit different? Isnt that a little bit strange. Yeah, it is kind of different. But, not only do we want to share with you the historical fact that 2,000 years ago a man named Christ, lived a flawless life, died a sacrificial death and conquered the grave. We also want to share the implications of that defining moment. In other words, how does His resurrection play out in your life and mine? Moreover, how does it play out in the most important unit in the universe, the family team? When I say the word “family” you probably think of unity, togetherness, and of teamwork. Over the next several weeks, culminating with Mothers Day, we are going to parallel the family with athletics. You may think that might be a stretch, but it is not. It is a favorite metaphor scripture writers use to describe our spiritual pilgrimage. They often compared the life of a Christian to the life of an athlete. So this weekend we want to talk to you about Goal Tending. We will parallel basketball with the family. We will talk about the priorities, the core values, and the goals that families should tend to. Pretty important stuff.”
