Being a sports nut and contemporary news follower, I love to read newspapers. For many years a member of Faith Church and friend, Daryl Van Schouwen, has been writing for the Chicago Sun-Times. This year he took a new position at the paper. He’s “the” White Sox beat writer. I was at a profession of faith party with him on Sunday afternoon and we were discussing his new role. What thrilled my heart was when he told me about the number of outspoken Christian players on the White Sox team. It warms my heart to hear about ball players using their God-given abilities to influence young children via their positions. I think of Albert Pujols of the St. Louis Cardinals, Kyle Korver of the Chicago Bulls, Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, and many more.
Then I think of Daryl. He’s working for one of the country’s biggest newspapers, using his gifts and talents writing for the glory of God. Sweet!
