Preseason. It’s here. For many teams in the US professional soccer, they will begin reporting to their particular teams in the next few days and weeks. It’s the preseason, and with the World Cup happening in November and December, it’s coming fast and furious for many professional footballers.
Today, on the From the Touchline podcast, I look at a biblical example of a “preseason” moment – this one, from Jesus’ life when he spends 40 days out in the wilderness before beginning his earthly ministry. There are some characteristics between Jesus’ time of testing and the same kind of preseason that a footballer will face with their own teams and I draw on the parallels.
Here are links to the Scripture verses mentioned in today’s podcast:
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).
