New on The Christian Chronicle’s website: a profile and photos of professional motocross champion Trey Canard, a member of the Central Church of Christ in Shawnee, Okla.:

SHAWNEE, OKLA. – Out of his racing uniform, Trey Canard seems an unassuming presence, especially for someone known for performing high-speed, bone-jarring exploits in front of 30,000 to 60,000 fans.
However, the toughness and quiet confidence of the 5-foot-6, 150-pound Canard shine through as he reflects on his motorcycle racing career and the long list of injuries he has overcome.
“Yeah, I’ve broken my wrists four times,” said the 20-year-old professional motocross racer, the reigning national champion in the sport’s 250 class of smaller cycles. “I’ve broken my collarbone twice. I’ve broken my femur.”
That’s not to mention nagging little injuries involving fingers and toes, ankle sprains and “stuff of that sort.”
Given all the painful spills, what keeps him climbing back on the bike?
Must be the thrills, right?
Yeah, that’s part of it.
But for Canard, the passion to race goes deeper than that.

    Thanks so much Bobby and to the Christian Chronicle for doing this story on how Trey is using his talents and skills and opportunites before thousands of people each weekend as he rides to share God’s Word. Despite ridicule, Trey continuesto put God first in his life and on the podium. He and his family are a wonderful blessing to our Central church family.
    God bless,
