Really Recommended Posts: Cubs Win Edition

wrigley-field-cubs-winHey, did you hear? The Cubs won the World Series! Here, I deliver a special edition of the Really Recommended Posts that centers around the Cubs, baseball, and the Christian worldview. Yes, it is possible to write on that! I promise this is my last Cubs post for a while. Maybe.

When Grown Men Cry: Why the Cubs Winning the Pennant is Important– Christ and Pop Culture reflects on how baseball can be seen as a kind of liturgy, one in which we can see more clearly the importance of Christianity.

The Eschatology of a Cubs fan– I wrote this post in 2012, predicting the Cubs would win in my lifetime (not a very lofty claim, but oh well).

The Chicago Cubs: Suffering to be Good– What can the lengthy agony of Cubs fans and players teach us about Christian living? More than you may think.

Life as a Cubs Fan: Eschatology Fulfilled– I reflect on how long-awaited hopes being fulfilled can point us towards the one true hope, the Christian message.
