Super Bowl worship event expands as network of Christian NFL players grows
PHOENIX (BP)--The annual Super Bowl Gospel Celebration is â€śone of the few nightly events you can bring your entire family to,â€ť former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Marcus Price said of the gathering of NFL players, coaches and fans in town for Sundayâ€™s matchup between the New England Patriots and New York Giants.
â€śItâ€™s an outlet for great gospel music, but also an outlet for real Christians who donâ€™t go out to the parities and the nightclubs,â€ť Price said of Fridayâ€™s sold-out celebration at the Phoenix Symphony Hall.
â€śYou get what you want to find at the Super Bowl,â€ť Price reflected, â€śbut this is a night we can celebrate our love and our faith.â€ť...
A great big AMEN to what you shared. When you think of the overall picture, a huge group of people getting completely involved with this event [being held on the Lord's Day], and no involvement in God's Word or their souls eternal welfare, for many of these people, it's very frightening, so say the least!
For Seattle Seahawks placekicker Josh Brown, â€śIt always helps you to be around other Christians, especially here in the NFL where we may not get to see each other as much. I know what he is saying, especially here in the SA comments where we may not get to see each other.
Price said of Fridayâ€™s sold-out celebration at the Phoenix Symphony Hall. but also an outlet for real Christians who donâ€™t go out to the parities and the nightclubs I know what he saying, but also an outlet for real Christians who love football, come on man football, its not like going out to the parities and the nightclubs
The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration, now in its ninth year, is officially recognized by the league as an official Super Bowl activity In other words, unlike the 501c3 churches who the NFL said could not air the game in church.
The NFL, it giveth, and taketh away You know what Im saying?
