Lessons from Lasso — What Do You Love?
What do you love? Who are you and how has God made you? Do you know those things? It’s a question that our friend Coach Ted Lasso asks of Reporter Trent Crimm in our latest and last look at episode three from season 1 of the Ted Lasso TV show.
Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, I look at the ideas of vocation and passion and doing the things that we love to do and understanding how those things make us tick and how those things bring special meaning and purpose to the world and to our lives.
Ted Lasso, the immensely popular streaming TV show in its second season on Apple TV+ features the antics and quirky, ‘Ted Lasso’ character brought to life in his own TV show series. 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.
In the ‘Lessons from Lasso’ series, I (Rev Brad) look at some of the different life learning points brought up in the show from a chaplain’s point of view.
From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 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).
