In last month’s issue of Influence, we looked at the first of Rod Dreher’s suggestions for equipping our children to flourish while living in an antagonistic culture. Since then, we’ve seen some developments in our culture that suggest things will get even more contentious, very quickly. One of those developments arose in an unexpected place – college basketball.
March Madness is an American pastime, where the 64 top college basketball teams are whittled down throughout the tournament until the two top teams meet in the championship game. This year, a true underdog has made it into the Sweet Sixteen—a relatively small Christian college in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Oral Roberts University. Ranked 15, ORU took out 2nd seed Ohio State in the first round. Then, in round two, they beat 7th ranked Florida State. By the time you read this article, the ORU Golden Eagles will have played 3rd ranked Arkansas.
It’s the stuff of great sports movies. A small college takes on the big guys, and in true David v. Goliath fashion, they just keep winning. You’d think everyone would be watching the ORU Golden Eagles with a sense of awe and wonder.
