A Footballer's Faith with John Hollinger
Have you ever felt alone in the midst of the Beautiful Game? Alone in your faith? Alone in a different country, where you don’t speak the same language? Where it is difficult to find community or ways to live out your faith?
Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, I am joined by American Goalkeeper, John Hollinger. John joins me via zoom from Madrid, Spain while he waits out a 4-week lockdown in Northern Ireland where he has been on trial. John shares about his journey as a goalkeeper and his faith journey, what it’s like to be in a foreign country and trying to live out your faith, and we play a fun little game called “Reflex” where we try to stump each other with different words and phrases.
Scripture references from today’s episode is linked below as well as John’s podcast and website, A Footballer’s Faith.
From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 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).
