    Jesus Flickfest 3

    Jesus FlickFest starts in Winnipeg tonight, and brings together what is, as far as I know, the largest number of Jesus film screenings in one place. It's run by Bill Millarworks with Knox United Church, Winnipeg, (Canada) and comes off the back of two successful festivals in recent years.

    The schedule is mouthwatering. I would dearly love to be there. If only it wasn't on the other side of the world!

      Glad you enjoy it. If I had the money to fly all over the world, it's certainly something I'd do as well. Hope you enjoy it this year.
