Interview with Football Fan Pastor Who Cut Sermon Short So Fans Could Watch the Game
Yahoo News - about 4 years
A pastor in Butte, Mont. went viral for his seemingly unwavering love of the San Francisco 49ers – even if kickoff conflicts with the start of mass. The Rev. Tim Christensen preaches at Gold Hill Lutheran Church. He was born and raised in the Bay Area, and his parents still live in San Francisco. On Sunday, his 11 am mass started right when the 49ers kicked off against the Carolina Panthers; a game that would send the winner to the NFC Championship. What is a sermon-offering football fan to do? Apparently, the answer is to keep it brief. More specifically, the pastor hatched a last-second joke to condense the service to about a minute. Pastor Tim told his 18 year-old son to grab his Flip Cam, and off he went to the altar.
