you that know me know that I absolutely LOVE the Olympics! I know this sounds
cheesy but there’s just something that pulls at my heartstrings when I see all
the different nations coming together for this grand event. In 2000, I was
blessed to work at the Sydney Olympics and ever since, it’s like the Olympics
are somehow in my blood. I was actually a little teary-eyed watching this year’s
watched, I began to wonder about the symbolism in the Olympic rings. The rings
were designed in 1912 to represent the five continents represented in the games.
black, blue, green, red, and yellow rings are on a white background
because one of these colors is represented on every country’s flag across the
globe. The colors suggest unity among the nations.
As I watch the Olympics, I wonder what life will be like
when Christ returns and we are all united under his Headship. We will all
understand each other and live in true harmony. What a glorious day that will
be! I encourage you to join me in prayer for all those at the Olympics – the athletes,
coaches, volunteers, royalty, spectators… Let’s pray that those who know Christ
will share far more than just pins at this historical event. May Christ be
