2022 World Cup Devotional — Hope

It’s week two, in the 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup. How is your team doing? We hope your team is doing well! Soccer Chaplains United has produced a devotional with themes of Advent and Christmas combined with football. For the next few weeks on the podcast, myself and author Jordan Medas will read one of the weekly devotionals for the podcast.

We encourage you if you haven’t purchased the devotional, it’s available on Amazon in Spanish and English and Portuguese. The links below are for the US AmazonSmile website where your purchase also helps our organization (if you designate Soccer Chaplains United), but if you have Amazon in or near your country, you can purchase it through there as well.

Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, I read the Kickoff reflection for Week 3, entitled: Hope Comes in Second? There’s a noble aspect to hope isn’t there? But sometimes we can hope for the wrong things or even bad things. We may or not be aware of all the ways that hope may actually not be good for us — unless we are hoping (trusting) in the right things. Listen to hear more of what I mean.

From the Touchline is a short-feature (10-15 min) podcast with Rev Brad Kenney, Founder and Executive Director of Soccer Chaplains United and Volunteer Chaplain to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. Rev Brad and occasional guests touch on various issues around the topics of faith, family, and football (soccer).

Also, don’t forget that you can listen in our app, SoccrChapUtd, in the Apple and Google store.
