While in Ashland, Kentucky, we talked with Liz Trabandt, who is in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association Hall of Fame. She coached girls basketball at nearby Russell High School. A relatively small school, the girls basketball team twice made it to the Kentucky State Finals. Ms. Trabandt said it was, to a degree, like the Hoosiers story. She gave our Sarah, who has played on a Rec. Center team back in Cleveland, some pointers. The one she stressed most was “practice, practice, practice.” …We then traveled further east to Huntington, West Virginia, where I talked with Joshua Sowards who is a Minister to Youth and Families at First Baptist Church in nearby Kenova, West Virginia (The pastor is Steve Willis). Sowards told me they are in the process of planting a church at Marshall College in Huntington. He said there is “no surprise” that many people are spiritually lost in our Post Modern culture. What’s more, he said even though much of modern philosophy is antithetical to the Gospel message, the biggest reason why people aren’t looking for God is because there’s a “lack of need.” That is, people are often comfortable enough in their lifestyles, etc., that they don’t feel much of a need to rely on God.
