It’s About More Than Just Winning
Boys become men by being around men and doing the things that men do: compete, lead, follow, fight for a common prize, and celebrate victory. At the end of June 2014, the Work of Christ Community in Lansing, Michigan, hosted the North American soccer tournament for the Sword of the Spirit communities and their outreaches. Over 150 young men participated. The tournament was a fiesta of teamwork, strength under control, and mutual encouragement braced by blistering competition. International and regional friendships were forged as men played through pain in the fight for the trophy – the coveted “sippy cup.”
