“I need to let you know where I stand. I have no hidden agenda. I have no ulterior motive other than what I said about my goals. I also need all of you to know that my priorities in life will most likely be a part of how I coach, and the expectations I have for the boys. My Christian faith is the guide for my life and I have never been one for forcing my faith down someone’s throat, but I also believe it to be cowardly, and hypocritical to shy away from what I believe. You as parents need to know for yourselves and for your boys, that when the opportunity presents itself, I will be honest with what I believe. That may make some people uncomfortable, but I did that as a player, and I hope to continue it in any endeavor that I get into. I am just trying to get as many potential issues out in the open from the beginning.”
For training, discipline and leadership you need to know what you believe. It will help you be a winner and will help you make winners. I am thankful for Big League managers like Mike Matheny, Walt Weiss and Clint Hurdle who manage to win and who have a winning faith.
I’m not totally convinced on the “Belief Matrix” but it makes me think. I am confident that there is enough evidence for me to have a Christian belief that I do not need to shy away from.
