Winners in the Imaginary Jesus contest!

My friends, if you haven't yet seen it, Tyndale has posted the winners in the Imaginary Jesus contest, including the essays of the eight highest ranked winners.  They are well worth your time, and I think you will particularly enjoy the essay by the grand prize winner, Deidre.

Deidre will be coming out to Portland this weekend with her husband to enjoy her lesser prizes (a Kindle, an iPod, a hundred dollars to spend at Powell's, travel to Portland and a night at a fancy hotel) as well as the GRAND PRIZE (getting to hang out with me and Krista for some amount of time between ten minutes and three hours.  We have a secret code word in case it gets awkward and we need to bail early (FLYING SEA MONKEYS is the code word), so we can do it without hurting anyone's feelings. 

Buuuuut, now that our previous contest it out of the way, it's time to do a new contest, don't you think?  And you guys have been whining and complaining that you can't always be expected to draw pictures and write stories to win your prizes.  So tomorrow I will put up a brand new contest that will require no special abilities on your part other than typing and an ability to surf the net.  And, because I am a lame libro-geek the prize will be a book.  That's right.  So tune in tomorrow and enter to WIN. 

In other news, I finally found a way to get rid of that dog poop that keeps mysteriously showing up in my yard.  It's called Park Spark, and it's a way to harvest the methane in dog poop to light lampposts in the city.  The only problem is that it's only in Boston.  So I will need one of you who lives in Boston to send me your address so I can ship you the dog poop.  Thanks in advance.


  1. Hey, I heard Maru was one of the winners! see, people did listen to you when you spoke at Rolling Hills

    I have just read all the winning stories. They are all wonderful! Congratulations to all! I thank God for His creation and creativity! I thank the talented writers for sharing their story. And thank you, Matt, for telling your story and inspiring us to do the same. And I thank Tyndale House for expanding the boundaries for us to be able to share our stories. I thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for continuing to rewrite my story so I may tell better stories! I will be praying for each and every one of you! :)
