-This week’s entertainment features the 1981 British film Chariots of Fire.

It is ranked number 100 on the American Film Institutes Top 100 Movies listing and number 19 on the British Film Institutes Top 100 British Films of All-Time.

Prayer Request & Scripture


Isaiah 43:2-4 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior…Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you.”
