When The Game Stands Tall, Yall!

When The Game Stands Tall moved me.  It is about the team with the longest winning streak in sports history, De La Salle High School in Concord, California — 151 games.

When The Game Stands Tall shows how a coach built a football team on caring relationships. The movie visibly demonstrates the amazing power of sharing from the heart to heal and to transform individuals into passionate and powerful people.

As coach Bob Ladouceur (played by Jim Caviezel) says, this movie “made my heart swell.”  There is so much potential in heart-felt sharing and caring.  However, as a society, we tend to reject openness, humility, putting others first, and vulnerability (outside of support groups).  That may explain why this movie received bad reviews.  But don’t let the reviewers hold you back.  Go see it!

You can also experience the power of heart-felt sharing at The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville, Tennessee, where rather than a 1-man sermon, ordinary people show & tell what God has done!  225 Berry Street, 37207 — Sunday mornings @ 10:45 & Tuesday nights @ 6:00.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
