It’s probably my most favourite time of the year in terms of Christian music (ok, make that second favourite behind the WOW Hits list releasing). The annual Dove Awards, in which the nominations used to be announced at the beginning of the year for an awards night to be held in April (and the eligibility period was October the previous year stretching back till November the year before that), are now held and televised in October, with the nominations from April stretching back till May the previous year; and the nominations to me are sometimes more exciting than the main event.
Welcome to another Throwback Tuesdays post- this week we are delving into a couple of songs from one of my favourite CCM artists- Steven Curtis Chapman!
Welcome to the latest instalment of our most recent blog series Top Tens, which is posting every Sunday, Australian time. Last week I shared my top 10 worship artists, and every week I will continue to share my ‘top ten ____’ (totally subjective by the way!), give a brief reason (whether the reasons are logical or illogical is another story!), and once again I will open the forum and discussion to all of you!
Today we’ll be talking about top 10 movie trilogies/franchises, and why these 30 movies (or more) are either sentimental for personal reasons or just because it’s part of popular culture and to not watch them would be criminal (nah, not really, but seriously, I think you should watch these 10 trilogies below, they are all pretty awesome, for one reason or another!) So without further ado… here are my top 10 movie trilogies (in reverse order).
Here’s the next installment of “Sunday News Roundups”, this time from the 4th to the 10th August. Enjoy reading the scoop on the latest news!
In honour of the new WOW Hits compilation releasing in September, I have decided to make this sentimental Saturdays post about a comparison of WOW Hits, namely, the upcoming WOW Hits 2015, and its counterpart 10 years ago, WOW Hits 2005. While I have discussed the logistics of a WOW Hits list a few Sentimental Saturdays posts back, here I discuss about the slow phasing out of certain artists and the inclusion of a few more when comparing both lists, and the fact that some of these artists that were on previous WOW compilations are just as prominent, relevant, encouraging and motivating now as they were back when they were ‘popular’.
So many times in this Futuristic Fridays series I discussed about the future in relation to how it could be if something in this time that we take for granted was taken away from us. From a future without Spotify, Netflix, or even a future without the social relationships needed to function because of increased gaming, or the future of worship and albums with the rise in digital songs, consumerism, the dying out of CD’s and the ease of the consumer to have whatever they want with easy access; this week we tackle something different- how would our futures be if nothing was taken away, but if something was added.
A very sobering, uncomfortable, hotly debated, controversial and confronting topic, the notion that our actions in this life impact the next after we die, has been proposed in numerous formats by various religions and beliefs since the dawn of time.
