Terrorism and Tension for Sochi, Not Sports and Joy
"Never before has the pre-Olympic chatter been less about the athletes or the sports. And never before has the conversation leading to the Games been so grim.."
Loving God, as the 2014 Winter Olympic Games get underway, may the tension and threats of violence be replaced by camaraderie, love and sportsmanship. Grant all those in Sochi safety and security. May these games demonstrate the awesome power of athleticism and the spirit of sport, and not the awful power of hate.
