Which Road Are You On? You Should Spend Some Time On “The Road to Edmond”

Just finished watching “The Road to Edmond.” It’s been over a decade since I’ve watched something that centers on telling a “Christian” story. I just don’t have time for stories with two-dimensional characters where the only “honest” people are the brave Christians who, in the end, have all the Bible-based answers to rescue the sniveling former-non-believers. “The Road to Edmond” isn’t that kind of story. It may have taxed the acting skills of the two main actors and the story sometimes felt like a weird parable, but getting past that, it shows how sloppy and difficult real love can be and the pain left over from lost opportunities when one is restricted by literal religious beliefs. As a former-believer, I appreciate the struggle for human connection despite the objection of orthodoxy and that these film-makers have added their Christian voices to recognizing our shared part in this journey “On the Road to Edmond.” I hope you get a chance to catch this interesting tale on one of the streaming services, now that this recent pay-what-you-want on-demand offers is expiring (on 2/28/2019) at https://theroadtoedmond.lpages.co/the-road-to-edmond-pay-what-you-want/

I love the ending credit song:
