“Tiger, turn to the Christian faith and you can make a total recovery and be a great example to the world" Brit Hume, Fox News Analyst in a 2010 interview with Christianity Today.
In a picture that ran in today’s News and Observer, Tiger Woods points up after he chips in for a birdie on the 10th hole during the first round of the Wyndham Championship.
Does this simple gesture from Tiger Woods mean he accepted Hume's challenge from 2010 and is giving the glory to God for his performance?
I want to think he is. It would show the beginning of what producers of Woodlawn are hoping will happen across the nation as viewers flock to theaters to see the true story of what happened when a football team gave their hearts to Christ.
It’s been a few days since I watched an advance screening of Woodlawn. This powerful movie is set in the early 1970s and tells the story of an unlikely high school football team from Birmingham Alabama transformed from fighting, hate, and a losing streak to one that wins. Watch the movie trailer below and if you have time, sign up for an advance screening or better yet, make plans to see the movie on opening weekend October 16.
Watch what happens when God shows up.
