I have been writing about religion, mostly Christian, denominational and ecumenical, since high school. Based in Australia and Asia, I have worked on newspapers and in church offices and travelled to report on church and other events in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. I also play, coach, watch and write about the beautiful game. The poor coverage of football in Australia is matched by the shortage of regular, informed reporting of religion — particularly disappointing considering their influence on the lives of people around the world. This blog has some fun with the notion of football as religion but also seeks to encourage serious thought about how and why we should report religion better.
