Length: 28 minutes

In this episode I explore the themes of Foundation and Vocation: Where we are from and where we are headed.  How does a strong or weak foundation affect our growth, our emotional health?  How does a clear vocation, or a lack thereof, affect the growth of the young adult?    These emerge as the major themes of the 3rd installment of the Up Series. Please join us.
