    Simpson Bracket Challenge 2012 :: Join the Community, Make Your Picks, Have Fun, and Win

    At the conclusion of chapter two in The Good and Beautiful Life, James Bryan Smith invites his readers to play as a spiritual formation exercise.  Play teaches us about life in the kingdom of God.  Play teaches us to embrace sponteneity, to release control, to enjoy life, and to revel in God's creation.

    So, let's play.

    March Madness is a great time a year for sports fans, and for my family.  Suddenly, my wife becomes interested in college basketball, and I love it.  Many others fill out brackets and follow along, even though their picks might be based on mascots and jersey colors rather than matchup analysis or overall record.

    If you're filling out a bracket, fill out one more.  Join my bracket challenge.  Have some fun.

    Here is the bracket password: theology.

    The overall winner will receive a $20 gift card from Amazon.com and bragging rights for one full year.  Join the league, and answer this question in the comments:

    Who do you think will win the NCAA tournament?

     

    Invite your friends.  Make it a crowd.  Follow the tournment.  Drink deeply of life.  Give all the glory to God.

    Spread the word.
