Football Practice on Sunday Morning

I was driving to church on Sunday and en route is our local high school.

As I drove by the football field, I saw something that saddened me. The football team was having practice during church hours. And after church, I noticed on the way home, that there were still practicing.

In my newest book, "Fertile Soil...see kids' faith grow and flourish for a lifetime," I address this.

Here are few notes from the book.

One of the thorns that is choking out the faith of the next generation is sports. Interesting enough, Little League baseball participation is down. The number of players in the Southeast Region of Little League is down 43 percent since 2007. So where are the kids going to play? The vast majority of them are playing on private clubs.

Time magazine has covered this extensively and even had it as the front cover of two of their issues. The report from Time magazine brought to light some interesting statistics.
