A fallen players spiritual journey…
Posted December 15, 2007on:
f you wonder whether the bumper sticker about God “allowing U-turns” for those heading in a wrong direction has any meaning, some events from the summer and autumn of 2007 might confirm it. A Seventh-day Adventist pastor was helping a young man in the public eye with such a change, only to have this work cut short by tragedy.
Sean Taylor, the Washington Redskins football player who was murdered during a middle-of-the-night burglary at his home on November 27, 2007, was known to the world as an aggressive athlete, once telling his pastor: “I just get paid to put them on the ground,” with “them” being his opponents on the playing field.
Less known until his December 3, 2007 funeral in Miami, Florida, an event televised nationwide, was that Taylor, 24, was attending the Perrine Seventh-day Adventist Church in Miami, and that Pastor David L. Peay, Sr., who once led the congregation there, had baptized the young athlete.
