We received so many great submissions to our March writing contest. Thank you to everyone who took a risk and submitted their work for consideration.

We’re all in debt to Chris Kanski, one of our board members, who conducted the initial judging and review process of all of the entries. Thank you, Chris!

Our team of judges looked at the quality of the writing and the strength of the argument made. Our smallest consideration was how well we agreed with the writers’ conclusion on the topic.

The theme for March was “The Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.” We challenged writers to explore the values of Psalm 24:1, and to imagine a world in which that vision is fully realized.

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
    the world, and all who live in it;

Psalm 24:1 by King David

The winner of March’s writing contest is Mark Bair for his essay “Tastes of Glory.”

Mark wrote a beautiful essay about his first experience in Yosemite Valley, and how the Lord implanted a piece of his majesty in Mark’s heart and mind there. Mark’s essay will be posted in full in the next few days.

Well done, Mark! You’ve won the $100 Amazon gift card, and we’ll feature your essay and biography on our website and podcast soon.

The runner-up is Sue Springer for her essay titled “Belonging.” Sue drew our attention to the innate desire of humans to belong, and the God of the universe who, in His love, is the only being capable of fully satisfying that longing.

Great writing, Sue! You’ve won the item of your choice from the School of Kingdom Writers Bonfire store.

HONORABLE MENTION: We’d also like to mention the work of Anne Whiting.

Thank you to all who entered this writing contest. It was a tremendous pool of submissions. We hope that you’ll submit again this month as we shift our attention to short stories.
