Gavin Peacock // Football Pundit // Theologian

Did anyone see the football highlites last night?  We had just got in from the gig and found that Gavin Peacock was openly conversing about his faith on the TV with a bunch of blokes.  He was talking about how he was leaving his role as a presenter to train for ordination. 

It has to be said, blokes find it really difficult to be open about their faith at the best of times.  In a particularly blokey context it is neigh on impossible for a bloke to override the instict to run away from the topic and hide in the corner.  You don’t get much more of a blokey context than football so here’s to Gavin Peacock.  A mans man who managed to witness to what he has seen through the medium of football.

  1. I have so much respect for Gavin Peacock…i didnt actually see him talking faith on the occasion you mention but it’s not the first time he has done that. at Christams a couple of years ago football focus did a brilliant section on faith in football. it was really well presente and took in palyers from loads of different teams and different churches…wish i’d know it was coming on when it did tho! took me by suprise so had no chance to tape it!

  2. Sounds good. I had no idea until his final broadcast…
