well, it's the first of the Euro semis tonight and, guess what, I'm out - the story of a Minister's life! However, it's the third of a Church Review night with Stratton Green so it's something I shall enjoy. Apparently, both a newspaper in Germany and in Turkey carried the same headline on Monday: 'Let football be the winner'. I hope so. There's loads of Turks living in Germany (and not a little tension) as I found out when I spent some time with the German Baptist Mission Network earlier this year - a German Church Planter in Turkey there is one of the most wanted men by one radical muslim group. It got me thinking, though, especially as several people have repeated the mantra to me recently 'you must be really busy'...
