Huddling with God

Tom Krattenmaker has an interesting story anchoring the home page of Salon this morning. "Going Long for Jesus" takes an in-depth look at how evangelical Christian chaplains are embedded with nearly 100 basketball, football and baseball teams to the dismay of some players and fans. Krattenmaker shows us the influence of these chaplains from post-game prayer circles on the 50-yard lines to players who thank God for helping them make the game-winning shot at the buzzer. This is an article with a strong point of view that raises fascinating questions about the mixture of religion and sports. You may have to click on an ad to read the story, but it's worth it.
