Compassion Immersion 2017 — Week 3
Eric Liddell was probably most famous for choosing his religious beliefs over competing in an Olympic race held on a Sunday in 1924, a race for which he was heavily favored as a gold-medal favorite. His story was made famous by the Academy Award-winning film Chariots of Fire. But what most people don’t know is that Liddell gave up promising career (and incredible wealth) as an athlete to serve as a missionary teacher to the people of China, where he remained until his death in a Japanese civilian internment camp in 1945. In the final week of Compassion Immersion, Steve examines the life of this incredible man, and how his devotion to God and his global vision can inspire all of us even today.
