What are your favorite Hitchcock films?

Some of the songs from that soundtrack are still in heavy rotation…

Hillsong This Friday

This Friday is going to be all about Hillsong United at our house. Margot and I have tickets to the Hillsong United concert Friday night. This will be her first concert and she is excited. There will be a movie premier Friday afternoon for the Hillsong movie Let Hope Rise that opens this fall. We will be going to that as well. Hillsong has long been a band connected to the world through incredible worship music. I really enjoy their music and have been to several of their concerts. They are great times. I want to encourage you to check out their concert when it stops through and…
