Rennie Curran knows what it is like to be a free agent.

He was once released from a professional sports team and was unsure if he would be able to play somewhere else. He says it is not just athletes who experience that feeling of unease.

“We are all free agents at one time or another, facing a time of uncertainty,” Curran said.

He believes that with faith and the proper attitude, people can survive those rough situations.

“Your setbacks and adversity can make you stronger,” Curran said.

The former University of Georgia football star and NFL linebacker is now a member of the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. He will deliver his message to middle school, high school and college students Saturday night at 7 in the St. Mark United Methodist Church activity center on Whitesville Road.

Curran is part of a special free program for the public called Jams, Jokes, Jocks and Jesus. Sponsors include the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and radio station 88.5 The Truth.
