Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to write an essay on the topic The Earth Is the Lord’s, and Everything In It.

Psalm 24:1 tells us, “The Earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it.” This is a true statement. How would the world, the church, or your life change if we really believed this with all of our hearts and acted upon it?

How will our world change when we really believe this truth? How will we behave differently if we really accept it?

We’ll be looking at both the content of your essay (what you say), and the quality (how you say it). You can approach the topic however you’d like, but we’d love to see some creativity.

Essays can be up to 3,000 words.

You do not need to be an expert theologian to participate. We’re looking for essays that connect with everyday Americans.

Give it a shot! You have nothing to lose.
