2022 World Cup Devotional — Joy
The 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup Final is less than a week away! Who are you rooting for? 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 5, entitled: Discovering True Joy. In our day and age we mistake many things for joy — joy is not merely happiness (effected by circumstances). There is a greater sense of longevity. It is not temporal, temporary. It is greater than mere pleasure. Seeking out joy means often looking for something ‘older’ and still yet to be.
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.
