A Matter of Faith: A Presby Podcast
A Beyoncé and Sports Kinda Episode w/ Hannah Chappell-Dick
Show Notes

This week we talk about Beyoncé's new album and we talk about a lot of things happening in the sports world...

Question of the Week:
There is a parallel between Premiere League players choosing to not kneel before every game moving forward, but only on specific occasions, and the ways the faith community advocates for justice. Is it better/more effective to do advocacy all the time or in specific, target efforts? Does it matter if some people are clearly engaged in advocacy while others are not? Does the type of platform or following we have impact the type or regularity of the advocacy we pursue? New York Times: Premier League Players Will No Longer Take a Knee Before Every Game

Guest Question:
How does faith inform your coaching with athletes at some of the highest levels of competition? Also, how do you walk the line between encouraging and pushing your athletes, while making sure they are being taken care of physically and mentally?
