Lessons from an Olympic hero

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 9:28 am

I have recently been reading David McCasland’s excellent new biography of Eric Liddell, which I heartily recommend.  Liddell is well-known to many for his convictions that led him not to run on a Sunday in the 1924 Olympics and his subsequent gold medal in the 400 metres that inspired the film Chariots of Fire.  Less well-known is his later career as a missionary in to China where he recently became the first Protestant missionary to be honoured with a memorial.  But not many people know about him as a preacher.  So, what lessons can we learn from Liddell?
