My son plays football in a "private" league ie-not funded through the local recreation center, government. We have our championship game on Sunday. The initial hand outs do state that games may be played on Sunday. There is a group of parents that want the challenge the league to not hold games on Sundays as their kids can not play on Sunday due to religious reasons. What are your thoughts on this? I am conflicted and interested in hearing many points of view. Please share yours...
If it is one game I don't see the harm. Our state tourny games are sometimes held on Sundays do to availability of the fields. Will god punish son if he plays one game on Sun.? Does god want your child to have the learning experience of working as part of a team? Is there a lesson playing in a championship game? Is it worth this uproar for one game? Can your child miss one day of church, etc for this game?
I guess you have to decide what is more important lesson. Once you let your child make the commitment to being part of a team you need to teach that commitment to others is important. What about any Jewish kids that might want to play. If your league is usually on a Saturday then they have always been excluded.
The rest of the word functions on Sunday as well, you have to decide if you want your child to integrate into society or pull back from it. Perhaps this is a good lesson in balancing it all.
