COMPETITIVE SPORT

A lively discussion on ‘Competitive Sport’, as seen by Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The venue was not a stadium but Sinclair House, Redbridge’s Jewish Youth and Community Centre, which was packed with over 60 enthusiastic spectators, cheering on the three world-class athletes, the Right Reverend David Hawkins, Bishop of Barking, Rabbi Nissan Wilson of the Clayhall Synagogue, and Yussuf Hansa, Chair of the Noor-ul-Islam mosque in Leyton.

Their audience was kept amused and enthralled, on the edge of their seats, in particular by personal recollections of how playing sport and following their football teams had played such an important part in the speakers’ lives. All speakers mounted the podium to be awarded gold medals for their superlative skill in expounding and promoting the faith that plays such an important part in their lives.
