‘How to Train Your Dragon 3’ Proves How to Finish a Trilogy

MOVIE REVIEW
While not exactly a golden rule, it is known fact that if a movie does well in the box office, chances are good that it will be followed by sequel and more often than not, we’ve come to expect that the sequel won’t measure up to the original. Add a third movie to the mix and you’re just asking for trouble. With animated movies, the expectations are often even lower. (Is anyone really surprised that the Ice Age movies keep getting worse?) But sometimes, as is the case with the Disney/Pixar Toy Story movies, we’re pleasantly surprised. Now you can add How to Train Your Dragon to that short list too.

 GIVEAWAY 

Matt Redman has just released his 13th album, Glory Song, and Jeremy Camp has released his 15th, The Answer and you can win a copy of either of these albums.

Entering is easy and the more you enter, the better your chances of winning are. Plus, the deadline is coming up soon so you won’t have to wonder for months if you won or not!

Notable to the theme of unity interwoven throughout Glory Song, Redman collaborated with co-writers like Chris Tomlin, Jonas Myrin, Bryan and Katie Torwalt & more, and joined vocals with the likes of fellow artists Kierra Sheard, Cobbs Leonard along with a gospel choir. About the origin of the album title, Redman says, “When we worship God, it's essential to remember who it is we're singing to - and to make that song glorious. The worship of God should always be a glory song.”

How does one stay fresh? Camp says the key is just living in the moment. “What’s been amazing about The Answer is that all of the songs were inspired by just being present,” Camp says. “There was no song where I was sitting there and had this epiphany when I was writing. In every writing session, any idea literally just came in the moment. I was praying the whole time, ‘Lord, give me opportunities to combine these things that You are doing in our hearts.”

Deadline to enter is October 17, 2017. Read my review of Matt Redman's Glory Song here and my review of Jeremy Camp's The Answer here.
