Seen by an average of 106.5 million people, Super Bowl XLIV featuring the New Orleans Saints and the Indianapolis Colts was the most-watched program in U.S. television history. And the Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad campaign wasn’t the only witness for life surrounding the event.
The New Orleans Saints’ Super Bowl victory gave the nation a glimpse into the heart of faith-driven quarterback Drew Brees. As Brees lifted his baby boy into the air after the game, we are reminded that the gift of human life and love is even more valuable than lifting the Lombardi Super Bowl trophy. (And as a long-suffering New Orleanian who is rejoicing at this opportunity for a Louisiana rebirth, Dorinda can tell you that’s quite a lot!)
To see a video of Drew Brees witnessing to his faith, his community service and his answer to the challenge in his teen years to become one of God’s “few good men,” join BDF’s Facebook group:
