Stepping into the Wind: A Pentecost-Inspired Writing Competition

Jesus Manifesto has posted a writing contest that I think some of you may want to know about, it sounds pretty interesting:

We want your words. Jesus Manifesto is inviting you to submit an original article exploring the theme of Pentecost. In particular we want you to explore the theme of Pentecost in light of the world’s struggles. In the so-called “first??? world, Christendom is fading into memory. In the so-called “third??? world, new religious realities are emerging as Pentecostalism, Catholicism, and Islam compete for souls. Meanwhile, our world is growing increasingly diverse as immigration patterns and globalization intensify both the interconnectedness and the fractured-ness of our world. Ours is a world where urban poor in US cities carry cell phones while urban poor in other cities live amidst disease and intractability.
