Win the game, or win at life?

From the March 20, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


What does it truly mean to win? As a lifelong Christian Scientist and a member of a family that has seen nine professional athletes over the past two generations, I know the desire for winning, and the idea of winning, has taken on different meanings in my life. At times I have felt the pressure of an incessant urge to win at all costs, and other times winning has meant placing an emphasis on my own and everyone’s ability to express and demonstrate the excellence and dominion we all naturally have as children of God.
