Religion and football

After my writing about the relativsation of church and christianity to less than a social club, this caught my attention.

The reverend Richard Coles explores the relationship between football and faith in this BBC world service programme.

Mark Roques,who I met several years ago, and keep in touch with on email, is interviewed at the end of the programme. Mark tells me that the BBC expect 40 millions people to listen to this broadcast.
