Once a month at church, we have a football-related service and today was the first one of the new year.
One of the things we encourage is for people to wear a shirt and this morning I dipped in my own personal memorabilia collection.
The jacket I wore was given to me by Steve Evans, who while with Wrexham played seven times for Wales, and that’s one of his own tops from that time.
I always try to make the sermon football-related and based on Matthew 6, where Jesus spoke about not worrying about things we have no control over, that was a perfect illustration for the beautiful game.
For many, and I mean many, the result of a game can quite literally determine whether their weekend will be a wonderful one or they’ll be down in the dumps.
