Over the years Packer fans have exhibited a fervor for their team that some would say borders on religious. It seems that the world of football and the world of religion will collide in a different manner at Lambeau Field next month at an event that may well have the best name I have ever heard of for a religious rally; Leap of Faith Lambeau.
Historic Lambeau Field, just this side of heaven for the most devoted Green Bay Packers fans, will replace beers and cheers with prayers and praise on July 7 as thousands of Christians gather for what may be the first faith-based event ever held there.
At least 6,000 people have registered for Leap of Faith Lambeau, a day of worship, prayer, music and teaching, said Pat Boyer, president of Leap of Faith Group of De Pere.
There are about 45,000 seats available, fewer than at the football games. That's because activities aren't being allowed on the field, and part of the east side of the stadium will be used for the stage.
My guess would be that most Packers fans reading this probably just had the same thought; "Thank God they aren't going to mess up the field."
