Modest in Victory; Gracious in Defeat
Modest in Victory...Gracious in Defeat. These words are painted boldly on the wall of Concordia Seminary’s field house where I had the opportunity to play many basketball games. The words remind us that sports are about more than just winning a game -- sports provide the opportunity to grow in our character. As John Maxwell teaches, sometimes you win and sometimes you learn. At CCLS we have had a lot of success in sports, but regardless of the outcome, we learn teamwork, respect for others, and diligence leading to the accomplishment of goals. And above all, we learn that playing with our friends can be really fun!
With basketball starting up this week, I want to thank Clint Adler, our Athletic Director, and all of our coaches for investing time into our students as they grow physically and in their character through sports. With so many teams, we are blessed to have parents dedicate their time to supporting our students in these life lessons.
Have a great weekend in the Lord!
