Agents Of SHIELD (Heavy Is The Head, Making Friends and Influencing People, I Will Face My Enemy, A Hen In The Wolfhouse)

Starring: Clark Gregg, Ming Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Nick Blood, BJ Britt, Patton Oswalt, Adrian Pasdar, Reed Diamond, Simon Kassianides, Henry Simmons, Brian Patrick Wade, Adrianne Palicki, Ruth Negga, Kyle McLachlan, Dylan Minnette

What a difference a few weeks makes! I remember, I was commenting last time about Agents Of Shield, that Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), who was absent from the premiere, except for in Fitz’s (Iain de Caestecker) head as a hallucination, would resurface only in the mid-season finale, and I also reiterated that Skye’s dad (Kyle McLachlan) could feature, as a possible good guy! Oh, how wrong was I on several accounts! In fact, the past few episodes of Shield have warranted my declaration that this show is one of my favourites this entire season, as we see new characters interacting with our main leads. We also are given more pieces of the overarching puzzle, as we ask questions such as what does Hydra member Daniel Whitehall (Reed Diamond) want with the obelisk, what are the strange writings that Coulson (Clark Gregg) is writing, and is Simmons Hydra; and as we ask these questions, we are then enthralled and amazed at the high calibre of the show, and how it could tie into the upcoming movies.

Message Mondays: How Does Worship Look Like?

On this week’s Message Mondays post, let me delve into the age old mystery that has racked our brains for all of time. How do we worship, and what constitutes worship? I know, I know, I probably should be reserving this post for a Worship Wednesday post, however I feel like there is a message behind all of the explanations of different kinds of worship, which is why I chose to write this piece today.

Travis Freeman

23 blast- travis freeman

The inspirational film 23 Blast (starring Stephan Lang, Alexa PenaVega, Mark Hapka, and Max Adler), releases in the cinemas on October 24th 2014. The family friendly film is inspired by the true story of Travis Freeman (centre in the above picture), who became blind at an early age, but still overcame his fears. He played college football, and graduated from university, also gaining his Phd and his Masters of Divinity, and this film has just an uplifting and encouraging message for anyone to be inspired by. I had the privilege of interviewing Travis recently, and here we talk about his thoughts of his life being played out on the screen, the inspiration and challenges he faces daily being blind, as well as his faith being strengthened because of his blindness!
