Page 2 Quarter of the page . . . plse put facts in flags of countries mentioned, see below Did you Know? Five facts about Football and The World Cup 1.Did you know that the football game has Christian roots? The roots of the Beautiful Game were established in the late 1800’s with Christians at the heart of it. Churches wanted to do something to counteract the problem of drunkenness in society and the effect it had on family life. Launching football clubs was the main way to counteract this large social problem. 2.The 2010 World Cup will be held in 10 stadia in nine cities –there are two stadia in Johannesburg. The final will be played at Soccer City Johannesburg which seats 94,700 people! 3. WINNERS AND LOSERS England and Germany are known as great World Rivals in 1966,England beat West Germany and won the World Cup. The score was 4- 2 to England. In the quarter final in 1970,England led 2- 0 but West Germany came back to win 3-2. In the semi final in 1990 the score was 1-1 then West Germany won on penalties. 4.The last team to win the World Cup was Italy in 2006. Italy 1 v France 1 (Italy won 5- 3 on penalties) in Berlin 5. Famous Victories . . . There have been some great one –off wins for African teams but so far no consistent wins to gain the World Cup. In 2006, Ghana successfully made it to the second round. In 1990 Cameroon won their group and beat Columbia to reach the quarter final.
Some of the most exciting matches of the 2006 World Cup was France 1 - 0 win over Brazil in the quarter finals . Ukraine saw the biggest turnaround in their form. They lost their first game 04 to Spain but went on to reach the last 8! Games Showing at Jesus House ( see attachéd the table) Inside Quote : ( pull quote) My happiness you know , make no mistake about it , it does not come from my success or my financial standing. It doesn’t, and I need peace and joy, and there is no money in the world that could buy that. That can only come from one source and that’s God. Tim Howard, USA
Write up One Cup, One Love Uniting The Community This year, 2010 for the first time in history, The World Cup will be held on African soil on June 11th in South Africa. Jesus House is excited about this event and would like to kick start the excitement by screenings the games for the community. Millions will be watching the games in South Africa, so its only fair that if we can’t go to the games, the games should come to us! The doors open from the 22nd June – 6th July for everyone to see inside one of the largest local churches in the borough and to watch the World Cup live on probably one of the biggest screens in Barnet! (image of Jesus House worship screen) Enjoy the games in a family friendly environment. Football, fans and food, what a great combination! Penalties, Red and Yellow Cards As we head towards the Championship, let us not forget the real champion of all ages. The One who continues to hold the World Record title of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Let us not forget the power of the story of the one who holds the cup of life, dreams and promises. His love for us can never compare with the love of football. It doesn’t matter if we win or lose, he still loves us. He doesn’t give us penalties, red or yellow cards when we do wrong, even when we go offside. (image of football offside) Lasting Glory . . .
Life can sometimes feel like a free kick, with only one opportunity to get it right. Some people have the wrong ideas about football and footballers, they think they are born lucky. Winning the World Cup glory is seen as such an achievement. For some it may even feel like a game of life and death. But it’s God that gives us talents and opportunities, and with them come great responsibilities. This is one of the unexplainable blessings that he gives us freely. However knowing God is more of an achievement. For God’s love lasts forever. He is the ultimate champion and holds the cup of life, dreams and promises.
The good news is that knowing God is like having a personal friend who understands the highs and lows, wins and losses, the challenges and the struggles. That is why we need Him so much. He helps us to do the things that seem impossible, enabling us to be winners! The great thing about Him is that He accepts everyone who comes to him. There are no qualifying criteria! The first step is to just believe that Jesus , The Son of God died on the cross for our wrongs, to make things right for us. In order to be happy, (truly happy not momentarily happy) we must be right with God. Only then can we have lasting happiness, peace and joy.
