Emmaus – Coping With Grief

Yesterday, we released a special edition podcast, Emmaus – Coping with Grief. In the light of a couple of recent deaths of former footballer’s, this special edition podcast under From the Touchline is designed to give some coping skills to those who are perhaps faced with a sudden and shocking loss or death.

In my experience as a chaplain in hospice care,  as well as serving parishioners in the church and the football (soccer) community — death, especially the death of a young person can take a tremendous spiritual and mental toll. I have found that the account of the two travelers on the road to Emmaus, found in the Gospel of Luke 24:13-36, had helped me to identify where I am at on the road of grief and given me some tools for coping and grieving.

Additional tools and reflection points are in this podcast, which is longer than what we usually produce (34 min).

From the Touchline is a short-feature (10 min) podcast with Rev Brad Kenney and occasional guests touching on various issues around faith, family, and football.

Check out the Soccer Chaplains United App and go to the Media section. Under podcasts you will see a new podcast for 8/28/2019 entitled “Emmaus — Coping with Grief.”
