In the heart of summer, it is a sporting persons wonderland. Wimbledon in tennis, the Tour de France in cycling, the Open Championship and the PGA Championship in golf, and this past week the World Track and Field Championships from London. Watching the athletes compete, one is witness to the amazing grace, beauty, speed, strength, and endurance of the human species. The variety of events highlight the differing gifts and strengths that exist and excite. For example, Mo Farah the 10,000 meter winner is a wisp compared to hulkish Joe Kovacs the silver-medal-winning shot putter, and neither compare to the speed and strength of Tori Bowie, the 100 meter women’s champion. Indeed, as we like to say at St. Francis, Inclusive because Diversity was God’s idea. And the track and field championships has it all.
