Dr. Kirk Sims, both in my current and appointment to come there is a basketball gym within the facility and a night dedicated to pick up playing available. This sport had a significant impact in my life and with the tragic passing of an NBA role model growing up, Kobe Bryant, his death will be on the minds of most fans of the sport for the months to come as he passed away in the midst of a helicopter crash with his oldest daughter, Gianna Bryant. As I heard of this news I was reminded of how brief our life can be and reminded me of the difference between someone losing their life and Jesus willingly offering it for our good. Because the context for this kind of conversation is not a Sunday morning sermon but more conversational immediately prior or following open gym has taken place the vernacular and length of the latter will be shorter and more casual than the former. I hope this contextualization of the gospel is a blessing to you as much as it will be to whomever listens to it sometime in the future.
