Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

Maybe America isn’t losing its religion for football after all. According to a recent Lifeway survey, 83 percent of participants said they disagreed that they would skip worship service on Sunday in order to watch their favorite team play. Only 15 percent of those surveyed said they’d skipped church to watch their team. This is good to hear that even in this increasingly secular society, that a majority of church goers would prefer religion over football. With DVR now you can never miss a game, and if you’re a Falcons fan like me, you don’t have to worry about watching them play this coming playoff Sunday.
