Halftime: Differences in Freedom

From the Touchline

Currently, in the U.S., there are two days set aside for recognizing freedom: Juneteenth (June 19) and July 4th. One celebrates a freedom fought for and won from British colonialism, the other celebrates the eventual and final execution of a proclamation of freedom.

Today, on the podcast, in the time that a team might have for a halftime team talk, I discuss the differences between these two days and these two types of freedom that are represented. I give some food for thought as it relates to spiritual, physical, and emotional freedoms.

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).
