Catch the “Spirit”
Fiesta and Rose Bowl Games

Catching the Spirit is like the highly anticipated and watched Bowl Games. Each person is like a student at a University, call it the school of life. Each has a place if you can just imagine an earth-sized stadium. We all believe in and support the same coach, (quarter back, manager, you call the metaphor) and as school students and often team members we’re moved around. This game of life has been going on for a long time so the uniforms have been improved and passed down to new rookies several times each century, but the game continues and the fundamental rules still apply.

We know that we can sit in the stands and watch while eating and being entertained only for so long. The situation invariably calls us closer and we either resent or enjoy our time sitting on the bench, however deep in our hearts we know that we must get into the action, as we wait patiently for a little confirmation from the coach.

When that time comes and the ball is being passed or handed off to us we now know that this is the time to accept the responsibility or to drop the ball. Catching the “Spirit” is the only course of action and we reach out and wrap our fingers around it like there is no tomorrow. Only this moment matters for us, and in just seconds the play is done and our contribution passes into game history while someone in the locker room puts on the uniform and several from the stands are called to “get changed”.

Lord help us all to catch the Spirit this year.
