As a baby boomer Pat is well aware we all die, a fact no one disputes. The question then becomes what happens when you die, where do you go, who do you meet? No one knows so using the “what if” of storytelling Pat began to explore the possibility of there being an imaginary portal here on earth where God delivers people who are in a near death experience to explore life and death and the big stuff. A scripted television show where each week the takeaway is “we are profoundly known and loved by God” which has the potential to deeply touch an audience.
