Disgruntled Oakland Raiders fans post billboard asking owner Al Davis to hire GM – ESPN

Al Davis has done a fabulous job of preparing the Raiders to establish a new legacy when he’s no longer running things. I am a not a Raider’s fan at all, but still feel for fans who’ve had to put up with his selfishness and lack of wisdom.

Just to add some sort of relevance to this post…This situation reminds me of what happens at churches when new leaders aren’t developed and the church slowly loses relevance. The only difference is that these fans don’t just leave and start rooting for a new team and talk bad about the team they left! If only churches could have more healthy debate (key word healthy), but I guess that would require shaking up the current hierarchy that exists in many of the families of God…

    I say we shake things up a bit, start those conversations, sift away the chaff of unbelief and uncertainty in our hearts and lives. Oh well, the Spirit through us, one by one will share the reality and relevance of Jesus. Thanks for posting.
