Taking Christian Music Out of Context: The Movie: The Musical

by Sam Acosta In this incorrigible ode to Steve Curtis Chapman, “A Week Away” manages to not only ruin my memories of church camp but somehow remove God from the experience as well.

Luckily, the production value of the film is very good, so at least that was nice.  The ...

Is Disney Getting Too Powerful?

by Hunter Johnson When Disney bought Pixar, fans had nothing but excitement. When they bought Marvel, fans were cautiously optimistic. When they bought Lucasfilm, that optimism turned to concern. Then they bought 20th Century Fox, one of their biggest competitors in the movie-making industry, fans came to an agreement that Disney’s growth had become downright terrifying. Now, Disney seems to own everything. They sneakily bought the majority shares of ABC and ESPN back in the ‘90s and ...

Titans are enormous beings who ruled ...

Welcome Home: Chapel Through The Pandemic

by Abigail Hintz Walking into the Jeremiah Chapel after over a year away was one of the coolest experiences of my life. I entered the doors to the familiar dim light, but the hum of the students was life giving. Everyone felt so much joy to be back, myself included. We watched as a video played reminiscing on how we had made it through the last year by God’s grace, and how after one whole year, we were home. As we were invited to worship with the band, tears were already in my eyes. ...
