Keepers of the Flame: Liberty crew coxswain Emma Spector test test test test

Emma Spector, a junior coxswain on Liberty University's crew team, shared her favorite Bible verse for the latest edition of "Keepers of the Flame," produced by Club Sports Video Coordinator Gabe Henderson.

In training and competing with her crew teammates, Spector draws inspiration from Hebrews 12:1, which reads, "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."

"That Bible verse rings really true to a lot of athletes," Spector said, noting it applies to her crew team in particular as they strive in unison toward a common goal. "Pertaining to the physical races that are in front of us — like the next test, the next semester, the next year, the obstacles (we face before) getting to the finish line — (we can) only do so by the love and grace of Jesus Christ."
