Some reflections on life out of the Rev. Rob Fuquay’s experience in NASCAR country.
United Methodist Communications
Where are you in your personal journey of faith?
Cruising down the track, comfortable with the position you’re in? Sidelined in the pits, working on internal issues? Perhaps you are not in the race at all but are watching from the stands.
Whatever your situation, you are sure to find inspiration in Rob Fuquay’s book Take the Flag: Following God’s Signals in the Race of Your Life.
The Reverend Rob Fuquay, senior pastor of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, developed this book and the small-group companion DVD first in NASCAR country at his church in North Carolina. He later adapted it to Indy car racing at St. Luke’s, which recently hosted the 12th National Gathering of United Methodist Men.
Regardless of your interest in racecars and racing, Fuquay sees a parallel between the flags used in auto racing and “the signals God sends us in our fast-paced lives.”
By looking at the meanings of seven different flags, we can become “stronger disciples of Jesus Christ by paying attention to the signals God gives us each day.”
