The Ultimate team I play for at school, Vicious Circles, is heading to St. Simons, Georgia (Unfortunately, it’s about an hour and half away from Savannah) this spring break to play in the High Tide Ultimate tournament. We will be playing in Session II with twenty-three other women’s teams.
I decided to visit the site today to figure out A) how far away St. Simons is from Savannah (because I really miss Savannah) B) what other teams will be down there and C) when we will be playing (because we will be there for a whole week and we are not playing every single day).
First, I noticed that the website was “www.disc-iple.com.” Haha..and then I stumbled upon the logo for High Tide:
And I thought, man they must be totally mocking this whole Jesus thing…why the freak is there a cross on the disc. Except, they are really not joking. This was on their “About” page (bold added):
At Disc-iple our goal is to likewise challenge one another to know the rules of life as presented in the bible and to apply them with grace to one another. The perfect example of this life was demonstrated best by the life of Jesus. Our hopes are that you will take up this challenge and test the words of this year’s scripture verse:
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
And then there was this freakish picture of Jesus with a disc:
I don’t know if my team knows that they registered to a Jesus tournament but I think it’s really funny that they did. Then again, this is like the biggest Ultimate thing going down on the east coast during spring break. If they are giving out discs and shirts with “disc-iple” and that logo on it , I don’t think I will ever wear it. I don’t think anyone on my team will ever wear it. This is going to be very interesting because they might feel awkward making fun of this Jesus/ultimate tournament in front of me.
