THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Will we ever win World Cup again?

Have your say

Two of my special memories as a boy and an early teenager are England winning the World Cup in 1966 and Apollo 11 landing on the moon in 1969.

It was a magical, exciting and historic time and many of you who are a similar age to me will, I’m sure, be able to recall many of the England squad by name, as well as the names of those first moonwalker astronauts.

So here I am some 44 years later, aware that many of my boyhood heroes are sadly no longer still alive, inviting you to be reflective with me for just a few moments about some of the big questions in life, like: “Is there any reason or purpose to our existence?” or “Is there life after death?” as well as some of the smaller questions like: “Will England ever win the World Cup again – ever?”

For me, as a Christian, the bigger questions are actually the easiest ones to answer. These and many others will all be addressed on our free, no strings attached, Autumn Alpha Course which will start in September and is open to “all comers”.

Now, about that other question...
