Casandra Hunte, a member and churchgoer of the Church of God, wrote a poem defining love, peace and unity.
Love: Definition- a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. Each player should play with love for their teammate.
Peace: Definition- a state of mutual harmony between people or groups.
Make peace with one another before you start playing.
Unity: Definition- the state of being one: oneness. Every player must play as one to win the game. Without God in your hearts, you will always be at war with your neighbor.
