Do you travel much? Have you ever been away from home and living out of a suitcase? Are you the kind of traveler that leaves everything in your suitcase or do you unpack your bags and use the drawers? In this week’s Lesson from Lasso, Rev Brad unpacks the bags a bit and looks at the spiritual and mental aspects of doing so.

Lasso first appeared a number of years ago as a comedic character as NBC purchased the broadcast rights to the English Premier League. Played by Jason Sudeikis, Lasso (as a coach) brings change to the difficult football (soccer) team that he has traveled overseas to coach.

Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, Rev Brad shares lesson six and how it can be helpful to ‘unpack the bags and stay awhile’ when it comes to the different temporary spaces we find ourselves in throughout life.
