I remember growing up listing to Red’s baseball on my transistor radio hidden underneath my pillow. Hearing the Big Red Machine, there are so many memories of hearing about my favorite players and nothing like what a well announced game could produce in my imagination.
Imaginative God, you have given us so many opportunities to compete in sport and the ability to find new ways to use our gifts in exciting ways. Thank you for the sports and competitions you have helped us design. We are grateful for the people who can describe those competitions to us where we can see them more fully than if we were there. May the children today find those same kinds of ways to have their imaginations stretched to see so much more than we can ask or imagine. May we share what is best from our youth so that they may continue for generations to come. And may your blessings be upon us now and always. Amen
