BY ADAM DARRAGH
@ VOL 6 ON OCT 27, 2017

When Adam Darragh was looking at grad schools, he tried to do a dual masters program in Divinity (ministry) and Film, and everybody looked at him like he was crazy. To them, the worlds were completely different from each other. To Adam, however, both involve trying to tell stories of Ultimate concern, that hit us right in the heart, and in human history, two things have existed through every era, even though we have no objective need of them: religion and art. Join Adam, as we look into religion, art, and living a more imaginative life.
