Church prays for LeBron to stay with the Heat

Church prays for LeBron to stay with the Heat

bruikylcaaakayz.jpg.CROP.rtstoryvar-large.jpgThe Root notes Episcopal Church that is praying for LeBron James to stay with the Miami Heat:

A group of fans desperate for James to continue his career with the Miami Heat has created a Twitter account (@BandForBron) to get the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player to keep his talents in South Beach, according to the Bleacher Report. The account is asking fans to tweet a photo of themselves wearing a headband—LeBron is notorious for playing while wearing a headband—and using the hashtag #BandsForBron.

ESPN West Palm, the creator of this movement, is encouraging fans to tweet photos of themselves, their children and even their pets wearing sweatbands in signature LeBron fashion.

Participants took the campaign to another level Sunday when congregants and clergy of Holy Spirit Episcopalian (sic) Church in West Palm Beach, Fla., wore headbands and dedicated part of their service to “King James.”

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
