King's Table, Part 4

Jan 29, 2020

Mephibosheth’s life is about to change — he’s leaving the old behind for something new. He’ll have to say goodbye, but he will be welcomed in, adopted, made as a son into a new family. Have you ever had this happen to you? Football, in many ways, feels like family. The world of football is a small, tight-knit community (even with it being a global game). Some of the best stories in football, are the stories of restoration and renewal — whether a footballer, a manager, or at some other place in the beautiful game. Walk along with Mephibosheth one last time and consider the parallels in his life with yours.

In today’s From the Touchline episode, Rev Brad’s best mate from seminary, Fraser Keay (“Kay”) returns to lend his voice and creative talents for a final time while Rev Brad finishes a month long sabbatical. The Kings Table: A Biblical Monologue featuring Mephibosheth, Son of Jonathan, Who Went From Ruin to Royal Court, is narrated by Fraser. At the end of the episode, Rev Brad rejoins with some questions for reflection.

For more on Mephibosheth, you can read his story in the Bible. He appears in II Samuel 4:4, 9, and 21:7.
