‘I belong to Jesus’. Ok ok……I know, sadly, Kaka has not made it into this year’s Brazil squad for the World Cup BUT I couldn’t resist including one of my all-time footballing hero’s in this series. When you think of the way Kaka plays the game certain words will always spring to mind, effortless, graceful, gliding  to name but a few. But did you know that due to a swimming accident in which he broke his neck, Kaka may never have graced the footballing world at all. Thankfully Kaka made a miraculous recovery which was to cement his faith in Jesus forever.

After achieving the accolade of being the highest English goal scorer (21 goals) this year in the Premiership, Daniel Sturridge has a lot riding on his shoulders this summer after an incredible first season at Liverpool. Liverpool’s number 15 will link up with his England strike partner Wayne Rooney where together they will terrorise England’s opponents at this year’s World Cup…hopefully.

So it’s VERY nearly here! On 12 June Brazil as host nation will walk out with Croatia to play the opening game with the world watching. I’m not sure if this is just me, but I am as excited now as I was when I experienced my first World Cup, USA 94.

It was a Sunday in October last year when I found out that I had secured a place in the 2014 London Marathon. Despite my excitement, I was aware of the challenge that 26.2 miles posed, and the serious approach it would require. Below are two key lessons, with supporting bible verses, that I have learned throughout my preparation and running of the marathon. The reason that I’m sharing them with you is because I believe that they are not only applicable to success in long-distance running, but to anything you may decide to set your sights on in life!

As is currently being highlighted in the news, Britain is becoming more and more multi-cultural, in many places a beautiful kaleidoscope of diversity. At school or college, there’s no doubt that through your life you will have come into contact with people of different cultures and different beliefs, especially if you live near some of the big towns and cities. The media in this country often encourages an “us and them” mentality, especially with topics like immigration, wearing the veil in public places and religious conflict in the news.

Valentine's Day. I wonder what images or feelings it conjures up in your mind.

I instantly think of chocolate, flowers and cheesy cards. The bright balloons and hearts bombarding shop windows and aisles. The colour red everywhere you go. The love songs on the radio.

We stumbled across this blog written by Becky Perry (the Divisional Youth Officer in Anglia) and thought that it was worth a share as it raises some interesting points. We wondered what you thought, whether you shout out in agreement to what she is saying or whether it doesn’t bother you at all, or do you sit somewhere in-between?

Why not have a read of the blog with your friends or in your youth group and spend some time discussing the following questions –
