Speaking openly about death is something that is taboo in many modern cultures. Why do we avoid talking something so inevitable? Are we afraid or is it something else? Join us to find out as we discuss the movie 'The Farewell' and what it can teach us about our faith. #WelcomeToTheAdventure

Jon Blevins (BeardedBlevins)" — This week we are joined by guest host Jon Blevins AKA "BeardedBlevins" who is a Director of Evangelization for a Catholic Parish and a Twitch Streamer.

Let's go change the world" being the center of that message.

  • 'Come Healing' by Elayna Boynton — O gather up the brokenness and bring it to me now The fragrance of those promises you never dared to vow The splinters that you carry, the cross you left behind Come healing of the body Come healing of the mind And let the heavens hear it, the penitential hymn Come healing of the spirit Come healing of the limb
