Saskatoon Blades Chapel
Competition. These boys sure like to compete. Maybe that’s what gives them an edge as they try to be professional hockey players.
We recently had our blades chapel at Eastview Bowl in Saskatoon. We had a riot. The boys competed hard against each other, which was really fun to be a part of. We ate, bowled, and got to know each other. Many of the guys who showed up were new to the team since the January 10th trade deadline. I always like to meet the new guys but also really miss the guys who have been traded away, an unfortunate part of this business for these teenage boys.
We ended our evening with the story of Jesus’ baptism. These boys live in a performance world, constantly having to perform well or else they will be traded or cut. The story of Jesus baptism teaches us that Jesus’ Father tells him that he is well pleased with Him, even though he hadn’t done anything yet. He loves him simply because Jesus is His son. The Father loves these guys for who they are and wants to have a relationship with them. Please pray for the team and for our chapel times, that God would reveal Himself and show them that He is the Lord.
