Talks tie peoples faith to passion for football - Tuscaloosa, AL News | Encouraging Reports in the Southeast | Scoop.it

Religious faith and football have the power to unite people of diverse backgrounds.

The Rev. Penny Ford, senior pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church, and the Rev. Kelvin Croom, pastor of the tornado-destroyed College Hill Baptist Church, made that observation when they met through the Tuscaloosa Prayer Network in September.


Their conversation led to idea for the Faith & Football lunch series, which is held every Monday at Trinity through Nov. 12.
