On a football season Sunday without a professional game (no, the Pro Bowl doesn’t count 🙂 ) an insightful ESPN article on Tony Dungy.  Coach Dungy balances

being a better disciple In the article Dr Harry Edwards says of him, “If you asked me, ‘Is there one person who you do not feel who would betray that trust?’ it would be Tony Dungy,” Edwards says. “And I’m a person who doesn’t believe there are any angels or saints down here. All the saints are dead, all the angels in heaven.

If someone says religion isn’t really important in my life or they aren’t of the Christian faith, that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop dealing with them. It just means I have to go about it in a different way.”

UPDATE: MCC Men’s ministry used Dungy’s Quiet Strength DVDmen’s group study materials for our Second Saturday Men’s Breakfast.  Coach Dungy will speak at the upcoming RED ZONE Men’s Conference on Saturday 17 April 2010.
