About this Episode

As we come out of Holy Week and into the joyous season of Easter, we cover a movie that embraces the same loss and journey of finding our Father: Disney Pixar's Onward. Even with it being Easter, Covid-19, the pandemic, & this quarentine makes finding our heavenly father a little more difficult. So tune in this week to see what we can take away from this quest to end all quests. #WelcomeToTheAdventure

FYI: Due to Social Distancing Recording, there are a few parts in this episode where it cut out for a few seconds. If you hear elevator music, that is why. Our apologies.

While Zooming with our friends reduces the solitude of social distancing, the limitations of the format can shape our conversations in unexpected ways.
