A spiritual approach to sports?

Q: I’m an athlete and a Christian Scientist. How can I think about athletics from a Christian Science perspective when sports and physical activity seem so material?

A: Thinking spiritually about athletics. What does that mean? It’s going beyond physical actions, championships, and statistics. It means exploring a much bigger picture—to participate in sports while staying aware of the presence of God and what God is doing in us and for us.
