Disability Sport with Rev Steve Jones
This Friday, December 3, is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. With this in mind, we take a look at disability sport — it’s origins, some of the challenges, and the story of someone who is firmly entrenched in serving the disability sporting world as a chaplain.
Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, my friend and fellow sports chaplaincy colleague, Rev Steve Jones, joins us to share more on disability (sometimes called adaptive) sport. Steve is the UK Disability Lead for Sports Chaplaincy UK and we’ve had occasion to share a curry in England from one of my trips across the pond.
I pray that today’s podcast will help to open your eyes and my own toward those who participate in disability and all-ability sports.
Mentioned on today’s podcast:
- USA Blind Soccer
- Ospreys Wheelchair Rugby
- Common Wealth Games (links to Birmingham 2022)
- Sports Chaplaincy UK
- Special Olympics Colorado
- Goalball — USA vs Brazil Women Paralympics Match
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).
