Couldn’t help think of Abraham Kuyper while researching Formula One this morning…
“There is not a single square centimetre of a Ferrari F1 car that has escaped the closest examination in pursuit of either mechanical or aerodymanic perfection.” Maurice Hamilton, Inside Ferrari, page 76
“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!” Abraham Kuyper, Dutch polymath.
Formula One belongs to God.
So my exegetical questions in preparation for Sunday’s sermon are these;
‘What happens when you take a highly tuned, culturally mandated, product and partner it with world-class, image bearing, hand/eye/body/mind coordination? And how exactly does Formula One racing testify to the brilliant, fast moving, peak performing, risk taking mind of God?’
