About this Episode

This week we discuss a movie that both of us really wanted to see. Join us as we discuss the movie '1917' and the poems and songs in the movie which all convey powerful themes of light and darkness, suffering and hope, as well as countless themes and tips for spiritual warfare. In a movie where we see the characters literally crawling over death in the hopes of finding and saving life, we see the Easter story played out in a completely unexpected way. #WelcomeToTheAdventure
