Oilers v. Wild - Titus 1:6-9
Our captain must be blameless, not chasing after puck bunnies, a man whose children believe in the Oilers and are not open to the charge of being a fan of the Wild or Flames. Since this captain is entrusted with leading God's favoured team, he must not be open to any charge—not overbearing on his young teammates, not quick-tempered on the ice, not given to drunkenness in front of a camera, appropriately violent, not chasing after wealth. Rather he must be hospitable to teammates, one who loves winning, who is self-controlled, ready to take criticism, spending time in the community and even more working on his game. He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message that God loves Edmonton so that he can encourage others with this sound teaching and beat back those who oppose it.
