NBC Football Night in America commentator and former NFL coach Tony Dungy said he wasn't as concerned about Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman's controversial on-field interview after the playoff game against the San Francisco 49ers as he was about the defensive back's actions immediately following his victory-saving play. Dungy, a leader in Fellowship of Christian Athletes, released a video (below) of his thoughts about the controversy on his blog on the All Pro Dad website Wednesday.
"I wasn't focused in as much on his interview as I was on what happened directly after the interception on the last play," Dungy said. "He went and really approached Michael Crabtree, appeared to be mocking him a little bit, Crabtree pushed him a little bit, and they get into a little confrontation.
"To me, that was not the time for that. I would rather have seen Richard Sherman go back to the sidelines, celebrate with your teammates, you are on your way to the Super Bowl, don't harass another player," he said. more >>

Pastors, by and large, are beginning to catch on. To reach the current culture, which is shaped in large part by its technology, we have to go digital.
This is nothing new. To reach 17th and 18th century people, you needed to use a printing press. To reach the culture of the 20th century, you needed to utilize mass media such as radio, television, or direct mail and advertising. And to reach people today, you use social networking.
But we still have a partly legitimate fear about using social technologies too heavily. We fear we will lose our edge when it comes to "real life," face-to-face relational ministry. We fear that we'll neglect those who don't use or like smart phones, that our relationships will become shallow, and that in our effort to "keep up" with the latest technologies, we'll drift from our long-held traditions and theological moorings. more >>
