Writer/Director Pete Docter has said he was inspired in part to make "Soul" after reading "The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything" by Fr. James Martin, SJ. To prepare for this discussion take a look at this interview the two did recently and consider the themes of: finding God in all things, purpose and the art and impact of storytelling. 

The Shape of Water - July 21, 2021

The theme of conversion continues this month and throughout The Ignatian Year. In this film we will consider how we can change the way we see ourselves, to consider ourselves as God sees us; to know the love and mercy we are given. (This film is the first in a series of four to be offered later in the year.)
