Contest Clarification

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : May 6, 2008

I just got an email from someone with the following observation:

I saw your blog post on the writing competition.  I actually was thinking about writing something. But I’ll share with you an observation I had as I read your intro explaining it…It didn’t seem clear.  I don’t really have a clear understanding of what you are asking for.  Maybe it’s just me…

I think this astute reader may be right. Maybe it wasn’t clear because the only experiences I’ve had with writing competitions were with obscure theological journals. It may be worth me clarifying a bit. Maybe I should have kept it simple like this:

Explore the message of Pentecost in our contemporary world. You can do that in any way that you’d like…but keep it to less than 1000 words. We’ll give awards for each of the Jesus Manifesto categories (except interviews and book reviews).
