The World on our Doorstep

          32 countries have flooded Brazil with their Soccer teams and fans. The first fifteen days of the World Cup have eliminated half of them. Some host cities have declared holidays for game days because of miles and miles of traffic jams, on Brazil game days, holiday for everybody. Today USA plays Belgium for a chance to continue in the game.
          The amount of money wasted on stadium construction and corruption is a complaint, but when a game is on and every Brazilian TV is tuned in, the bad stuff is momentarily forgotten. 
          The games in Brazil are a time to get with friends and family, to party and drink. The church has appropriated this cultural event for fellowship and fun. We watch the Brazil games together at the church building, inviting visitors to celebrate in ways that brings people closer to one another with God's approval.
