It happened so fast, though it seems like ages ago. Monday, March 9, rumors emerge that perhaps COVID-19 might force some closures in our society. Tuesday, March 10, rumors turn to reality as things start shutting down. In response, I write a communication to our congregation that, in accordance with our long-standing policy, we would…

Amateurism as we known it is about to change. In defiance of the NCAA, California has passed legislation prohibiting its universities from penalizing student-athletes for signing endorsements, monetizing their own likeness, and even working with agents. Other states are quickly following California’s lead, including Kentucky, which is reportedly drafting its own bill as we speak.…

In a press conference this week, Nick Saban turned his podium into a pulpit and took us all to church. If you haven’t seen the video yet, Saban went on a refreshing rant in defiance of our graceless culture, advocating for second chances when players fail. Lotta good stuff in this from Nick Saban on…

Our world has no shortage of great athletes, but occasionally we are graced with transcendence. By transcendent, I mean unsurpassed. So dominant, the entire sport changes to account for this newfound supremacy. So captivating, an entire culture breaks from normal routines to behold the supremacy. So inspiring, an entire generation dreams of one day emulating…

KSR Voices: Christmas — The God Who Knows What It’s Like

It was my first Christmas as lead pastor at Tates Creek Presbyterian Church. I was young, inexperienced, pretending like I knew what I was doing and somehow getting away with it. But there are pastoral moments that can’t be faked, and this was one of them. A family in our congregation had lost their teenage…

A letter to Kentucky Football before the Georgia game

Dear Kentucky Football, It’s me. Your jaded devotee. We both know how challenging it’s been for us. You, my cruel obsession full of empty promises. Me, your naïve enabler full of unfounded optimism. For as long as I can remember, it’s always been the same. Section 110, row 7, seat 12 of old-school Commonwealth Stadium.…

KSR Voices: Can Sports Heal Our Land?

To call our world divided has become inadequate. We are utterly estranged, entrenched behind fortified walls of raging partisan spin. Recently, local columnist Paul Prather wrote an uncharacteristically alarming piece suggesting that we may be past the point of no return with a new civil war perhaps looming on the horizon, not between north and…

For my “KSR Voices” contribution this month, I want to briefly interrupt the football excitement and return to KY’s greatest athletic achievement from 2018: Justify’s Triple Crown victory. My wife Abby and I recently had the honor of meeting the champion, and it felt like one of those rare moments in life where I was…

Matt Jones has two twitter accounts. His most popular [email protected], the go-to account for BBN news and commentary. His less followed account (still 54K) is @MattJonesRadio, the go-to account for his own opinions. In the strange world of twitter, that delineation works well, and youcan have one without the other. But in the real world,…

As Christians around the world gather to celebrate our most sacred day of the year, it is important to remember what is easily forgotten about Easter: It actually happened. Easter is not an inspirational fable of optimism and hope; Easter is an event. A historical event where a dead man came back to life never…
