The Technical Area – Luke 13 – Working on Flourishing

In a new series entitled, The Technical Area, Rev Brad shares some specific applications for certain biblical passages that help apply faith to football in simple, practical ways.

Today’s lesson, is on Luke 13:6-9. Here, Jesus shares a parable with his disciples and thousands of others crowded around. Contextually, he’s relating this into repentance and getting relationships right. The parable that Jesus shares has some practical applications as we sometime will have to deal with damaged, diseased, or dying kinds of relationships in our lives — whether on the pitch, in the locker room, or at home.

In this episode, Working on Flourishing, Rev Brad shares some insights for the text that he often shares with people in soccer as they deal with relationship issues. After hearing a talk several years ago by Dr Henry Cloud, Rev Brad has continued to use the wisdom of the parable found in Luke 13 to help people in soccer in navigating the often difficult complexities of relationships within a team and organization in soccer.

Special friend and coach, Ross Paule (currently coaching Creighton Women’s Soccer) is our guest introducer today.

The Technical Area is a new series and part of the From the Touchline podcast with Rev Brad Kenney. Rev Brad is Founder and Executive Director of Soccer Chaplains United and Volunteer Chaplain to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. He and occasional guests touch on various issues around the topics of faith, family, and football (soccer).
