June 25th, 2014

Whit headshotIn this first adventure of the upcoming Adventures in Odyssey release, it’s a time of surprises as Wooton becomes the celebrity guest at Comic-Connellsville and Whit finds himself in conflict over the upcoming “Let’s Get Together Festival” in Odyssey. Plus, hear an interview with writer-director Paul McCusker about the entire 14-part series.

Wooton’s got his hands full with a notorious blogger after announcing the creation of a new comic book idea-—and he has to deal with a wayward cousin. Whit refuses to join in a local festival and finds himself in a citywide tug-of-war between conviction and compromise. And the unexpected return of various relatives and former adversaries triggers complications for Connie, Eugene, and the rest of the Odyssey gang. It’s the perfect blend of excitement, comedy, and important life-lessons in this special 14-episode collection!

Parents: Learn more about The Family Project

This album was inspired by Focus on the Family’s The Family Project, a 12-session small group experience that explores the theological, philosophical, and cultural underpinnings of the traditional family, and combines that information with inspiring stories and practical tools to help 21st-century families thrive. You don’t have to take that course to begin your children on an adventure in understanding God’s design for the family. An included discussion guide will help turn these shows into a springboard for meaningful conversation.
