Trainwreck Books is working with Gideon’s Fleece Online Magazine to sponsor their first writing contest.
Gideon’s Fleece Online Magazine was created to showcase creative short stories with a Christian influence. Not all Christian stories are preachy, and they don’t necessary have to contain a focus on God or Jesus. Yet they do have some sort of Christian quality as the center focus of the story.
Examples of Christian qualities can be: Servanthood; Humility; Compassion; and Patience.
For this contest we are going with the quality of Forgiveness.
Grace should be an unwavering quality by any follower of Christ. While the rest of the world may show resentment and hold grudges, a legitimate Christian should always show grace and forgiveness. (Ephesians 4:32)
