Shyamalan's 'Glass' is Engaging Almost Until the End

I don’t think anyone will deny that M. Night Shyamalan is a great storyteller. He initially proved that with the release of The Sixth Sense. The symbolism of the color red, the odd scenes that made very little sense until the end of the movie and of course, the amazing twist that nobody saw coming. That incredible twist has almost been the director’s undoing. Since 1999, not one of his other movie’s endings have had the same impact, but he continues to try.

In 2000, Mr. Shyamalan hoped that lightening would strike twice with Unbreakable which also starred Bruce Willis. Like The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable was a mystery only this time, the story featured the lone survivor of a train crash who left the accident without a scratch on him and an incredibly fragile, wheelchair-bound, comic book enthusiast which appeared to be the polar opposite. The story was intriguing, but basically fell apart near the end when the twist was revealed. Now almost 19 years later, the same thing ha…

2nd Annual ‘Big Church Night Out’ is ‘Going to Be a Hoot’ Says Crowder

"Big Church Night Out" is a celebration of the beauty and diversity of the many different ways we worship while uniting behind the one thing that unites us all. It’s a night of worship, entertainment, music, prayer, laughter, art, reflection, and so much more. Whether coming alone, loading up the entire family or a bringing a church group, this night is designed for everyone.

Last year was the kick-off tour with the Newsboys. This year the tour takes church on the road with a variety of great names in Christian music including Crowder, Jordan Feliz, Sarah Reeves, illusionist Brock Gill and worship leader Jamison Strain.

“I’m so excited to be on the 'Big Church Night Out' Tour this fall celebrating the diversity of the Church with some of my good friends,” said Crowder. “It’s going to be a hoot.”

Join the one and only “Swamp-Rock” master - Crowder, who will close out the show each night with a grand finale - along with his good friends on the 2nd Annual "Big Church Night Out" Tour. The tour features the pop catchy sounds of Jordan Feliz, known for his hit song “The River,” and new album release Future with singles “Witness” and “Count That High!” in addition to singer-songwriter Sarah Reeves, a newcomer on the scene who is rolling out 13 fresh tracks this year, including the recently released “Easy.”

“I’m looking forward to being with my friends Crowder and Jordan Feliz this fall on 'Big Church Night Out,'” Reeves said. “I can’t wait to play some of my new songs from my new album and connect with everyone who comes out!”

"Big Church Night Out" welcomes back worship leader Jamison Strain, who dove into the inaugural tour last year. "My favorite memory from last year's 'Big Church Night Out' was seeing the church come together as a whole and worship Jesus," said Strain. "'Big Church Night Out' is like a family reunion - a place where denomination gets set aside, worship preference isn’t a thing and the main focus is Jesus. There is something for everyone, from hymns to modern worship. This is a night for the 5-year-old to the 95-year-old.”

The "Big Church Night Out" Tour will also be hosting illusionist Brock Gill, who shows the gospel in ways that you will remember for a lifetime. An evangelist at heart, Gill has shared the gospel message by means of illusions, great escapes and slights of hand to thousands of people worldwide - from youth groups and churches to massive arenas and tours, including Winter Jam.
There will be a variety of special ticket packages from “big group” savings, VIP packages, and family 4-pack specials as well. This is a great opportunity to bring your unchurched friends for them to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. Come out to "Big Church Night Out" and “let’s do church!”
