John Madden, a Happy Death and the Communion of Saints

Ethan MillerA tribute to former Raiders head coach, Pro Football Hall of Fame member and broadcaster John Madden is displayed on the side of Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders, after news of his death at the age of 85 on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Raiders lit a memorial torch inside the stadium before turning off all the exterior lights, except for the memorial message, in honor of Madden.

COMMENTARY: As football fans prepare to mark another Super Bowl Sunday, we can learn two lessons from the late John Madden we might take for Christian discipleship.
