The Holy Huddle

A local church, Unity Church of Dallas, has been getting press all over the US and Canada for their “Holy Huddle”. Mike even heard the story on NPR! I searched it on Google, and found 28 news items, including one in L.A.

For a long time, the Dallas Cowboys cost the Unity Church of Dallas people and money.

On Sundays when the Cowboys kicked off at noon, some members stayed home. Others left worship early – before tithing time – to avoid missing the opening snap. “They were putting up announcements saying, ‘Don’t trample the children when you stampede out of here before the service ends,’ ” half-joked Denise Maindelle, 50.

Then church members Ken Sutherland and Mike Connor approached the pastor with a suggestion: Why not show the Cowboys game on a big screen in the church fellowship hall?”
