I have been watching the World Cup Soccer extravaganza with great interest for the past several weeks. I never realized before this year that this competition started two years ago and there was an entry from virtually every country on earth. As we come down the home stretch and the semifinals and finals I am aware that this is an event that the whole world is involved with. There is nothing like it anywhere! If we can come together as a world around the game what would it take for us to come together at one great, huge table and talk about issues of world peace, disarmament, hunger, disease, and every manner of justice issue. The results of Pentecost came close. I, for one, am praying for a reprieves!
