USA Soccer Impressive in Win

The United States played an impressive 90 minutes to beat the number 1 team in the world and earn a spot in the finals of the Confederations Cup in South Africa. This is a great win for US Soccer against the premier soccer team in international competition. The US will most likely face a formidable Brazil team this Sunday (Brazil plays host South Africa today in the other semifinal). Spain had not lost since 2006.

Landon Donovan and Tim Howard had great games, Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey had the goals.  Spain outshot the US squad 29 to 9 and won the corner kick battle 17-3 but the US put the ball in the net and then held on to keep a very talented group without a goal.

More attention should be given to this really remarkable performance, it will do a lot for US soccer worldwide.

What's TheTempleBlog?

The TempleBlog started as my personal blog in October of 2006 with my first post: John Stott – it was a listing of John Stott quotes.

Now it is a different place. I mostly write about two of my convictions: Pacifism and Racism. But I also offer resources: both digital and personal. 

If you need Bible Study materials, want to take a more serious look at theology via an online course, or want to dialog with me about ministry and what I call Spiritual Construction, fill out the form here and we can connect and see where the relationship goes. 

SBK Productions is your online source for Homeschooling Resources and Art History Curriculum. She also offers several unique devotionals which incorporate Art History with the Church Calendar. Check out her upcoming Christmas Devotional series which would work for individuals, families, small groups, and churches.

Other churches have chosen  a middle ground approach: modified meetings in public. Others have chosen to simply meet.  Surrounding the challenges and variations  of Sunday
