No matter what the level of competition, each athletic experience or moment has the potential to evoke a sense of awareness and contemplation not often realized by sport participants and spectators. Winning, losing, injury and mistakes carry within them the precious gift of inspiration. It is up to the individual to recognize it, respect it, learn from it, share it and find God in it.
Here at Neumann University, our goal was to create a forum that offers a unique perspective on sports that is seldom explored. We hope our exhibit empowers visitors to move forward on their spiritual journeys with a sense of awareness, appreciation and wholeness that is too often lacking in athletics.
If you can’t visit the Bayada Atrium of the Mirenda Center for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development in person, you can tour the exhibits online: www.isscd.org/exhibit.
