Church this morning with a football-related message, it’s ok to lose a battle as long as you win the war

Once a month at church, we have a football-themed service where we invite people to wear a shirt.

The New Saints was the one that I chose this morning, which was relevant as it fitted the sermon as well as me.

Yesterday was the first league defeat of the season for TNS, going down 3-2 against Cardiff Met FC.

What made it worse was the fact that the side were 2-0 up after twelve minutes.

Come the final whistle, if you’re in that position, it’s easy to understand why people feel down.
