Rick Warren - PEACE Plan

The God-sized vision is just waiting for us to embrace. It's time for us to BE the Church and not just go to church. It's time to sacrifice and give to others-others first. It's time to embrace the P.E.A.C.E. Plan.

Zach Johnson


I'm now a Zach Johnson fan.


I don't follow golf but I do follow those who publicly credit Jesus when things go well for them. In some cases I find someone whose life consistently exemplifies Christ. In other cases I am disappointed by hypocritical behavior. Nevertheless, I follow them watching and listening...


So it's no surprise that this article, shared with me by a fellow elder in my church, caught my attention. Not only did I learn about Zach Johnson--I found a brilliant thinker and writer in Selwyn Duke.


Now this is the only article of his I've read so it's based on less than three pages. Yet it's so well written I've linked it below.


"Major issues can rise from minor things, and so it is with the Masters golf tournament of a week and a half ago. The winner, unheralded Zach Johnson, stood down blustery winds, benumbing temperatures and the closest thing to a force of nature in golf, Tiger Woods, to win the first major tournament of the year. What raised both my estimation of him and the eyebrows of some ever-offended secularists, however, was his mention of Jesus’ name during his post-event remarks. Said an exuberant Johnson,

“Being Easter, my faith is very important to me. I felt Jesus, I felt my grandfather, my family, everybody. So it was awesome.”

And,

“Regardless of what happened today, my responsibility was to glorify God. Hopefully I did.” "
