Triumphal Processions

From the Touchline

Who doesn’t love a good victory parade? The music, the ticker tape, all of it — no matter the sport, fans and followers seem to enjoy celebrating alongside their sports heroes a good victory. In soccer, the same is true. But for Christians, as we approach this upcoming Sunday (Palm Sunday), it’s a victory celebration that doesn’t last long (at first glance).

Today on the podcast, I take a look at Jesus’ “triumphal” entry in to Jerusalem. As he enters into the city for what will be one of the last times of his earthly life, he draws the celebratory crowds. I offer some reflections that we might take away for ourselves — whether we’re marching or riding in a victory parade formation or not. All of this and more, From the Touchline.

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).
