I learned chess from my father at a young age; however didn't play thru my teens. During my early 20's I was born-again and became a Bible believing Christian. I had a close Christian friend that loved God and chess ! We would meet a few times monthly to play chess, and talk about spiritual truths. My friend in the 80's while vacationing, died tragically, took his last breath on earth and entered Heaven.
Since that time I taught my children how to play chess and still enjoy playing and discussing spititual truths !! Jesus is Lord ! PTL!!
