To golfers, the word “Logos” means both nothing and everything. For non-Christians it is probably no more than a non-threatening, cringe-free name when they see it displayed at a golf event; or when telling friends they are attending a Logos Golf Day. To Christians, however, “Logos” means so much, and describes exactly what we stand for as an organisation :
Jesus Christ is the Word (Logos). He is God’s supreme revelation of Himself. God has finally and decisively spoken to the world in the person of His Son (John 1:1).
The Bible is God’s Word (Logos). It is the Jesus presented to us in the Bible who we must love and serve. Christian faith is fed and strengthened, love for God grows and matures, as the Bible is taught and we respond in obedience (Hebrews 4:12).
The Gospel is the Word (Logos). Unashamedly, we place a very high priority on telling others the Good News of Jesus. The death and resurrection of Jesus are historical events that must be believed, and the consequences personally embraced, if anyone is to enjoy eternal life (2 Cor. 5:19).
The curiosity aroused by the very word “Logos,” therefore enables any Christian golfer to straightaway open up a conversation centred around the very heart of what we are trying to do. In short, the name “Logos” is an evangelistic tool in the hands of those keen to reach their friends with the Gospel.
Millions of men, women, boys and girls play golf regularly and the exciting thing is that there are already many Christians living, playing and witnessing in this harvestfield. Since you’re reading this you may well be one of them! Your church is very likely to have several golfers amongst its members.
As golfers, we know that the sport affords us extraordinary opportunities for time with others. What other way would we find to spend 4 or 5 hours in the company of friends or acquaintances, talk about all things under the sun, and then even share a meal afterwards?
Is there anyone more qualified than you to reach these men, women boys and girls with the Good News of Jesus Christ?
