Sports media group 2K Plus International Sports Media has launched a new series of devotional podcasts for sports fans exploring a Biblical perspective on Competition.
According to 2K Plus the series of eleven two-minute programmes was written and presented by author and broadcaster, Stuart Weir, Director of Verité Sport.
“Competition is one of those issues which Christians find difficult,” says Stuart.
“How do I reconcile my natural aggression with following ‘Gentle Jesus meek and mild’? Why do I feel more holy on a Sunday morning at church than on a Saturday afternoon on the football pitch? This series explores issues of competitive sport and how God would have us deal with them.”
The series is available from the 2K Plus website www.2kplus.org.uk and explores issues such as Competition as Relationship, Identity, Sledging and Loving your Neighbour in the Heat of Battle.
“We are delighted to add this series to our increasing library of resources for the Christian sports fan,” says 2K Plus CEO, Adrian Barnard. “Sport plays a big part in many people’s lives, both for those who play and for those who watch from the armchair or stadium. Stuart’s insights, rooted in Scripture and based on over 20 years’ experience in sport, will help followers of Jesus who love sport to grow in their faith.”
Stuart Weir has produced four series of devotional podcasts for 2K Plus. The first exploring The Bible and Sport was launched in May earlier this year. Further series exploring sporting issues in 1 Peter and The Ten Commandments will be launched later this year.
