I was excited to read the June 11 Sentinel that focused on the Olympic Games. Endurance, skill, and overcoming limitations are all spiritual qualities we see expressed in abundance during the Games. 

Since many of the competitors are younger in years, I was especially grateful to read Brian
Kissock’s article, “ ‘Pa’ for the course.” Practicing Christian Science involves removing limitations that world thought attempts to impose on us, especially those of us considered senior in years. Brian’s statement, “I was perfectly capable of expressing the spiritual qualities of strength, endurance, concentration, accuracy,” is a perfect blueprint for golf, or any sport we’re engaged in. 

As an avid golfer for many decades, I’ve applied these same spiritual qualities to my game and am grateful to say that I’ve been rewarded with low scores that I wouldn’t have thought possible 20 or 30 years ago. Sports provide a wonderful way to see God’s qualities expressed, whether we’re a participant or a spectator. Thanks so much for this issue of the Sentinel.
