Religion- it’s a game of two halves (and no goals)

Today’s Times newspaper carried a wonderful write up of the inter-faith football (or soccer if you prefer) match between Christian vicars and Imams which fittingly ended in a scoreless drawn. HRH The Prince of Wales was on hand to present the trophy to both team captains after he had witnesses what he described as “quite a match” in a stadium in the Turkish district of Berlin. the idea of pitting Christians against Muslims was tried out in a charity match in Leicester in 2005 and was brought to Berlin by the local Anglican chaplain, the Rev Christopher Jage-Bowler. In the end the Christians were saved from  defeat by their 51 year-old goalkeeper- at least he had more claim than Maradona as the hand of God.
