You exist! This never fails to astonish me.
Yes, you, reading these words: I do not take the movement of your eyes over this screen for granted.
I have a question for you: have you ever thought about writing a post for Grow Christians?
The last time we invited people to write for Grow Christians, it was springtime. We know our readership has grown since then. Fall is on the way. And I’m wondering if you might have a story to share from your own life of faith.
Grow Christians has found our footing over the past few months. We’ve focused our attention on raising children and youth as disciples of Jesus: the younger generation of the Jesus movement.
And we know there are more of you than we have yet included on this blog. So it’s time for an invitation: would you be interested in becoming not only a reader, but a writer too?
Here’s what we seek:
We want to publish concise, well-written, first-person stories and reflections from a diverse group of Episcopalians seeking to live and share our faith, especially with younger generations.
We want to publish viewpoints from authors who will edify our audience – a diverse group of mostly Episcopalians seeking to live and share our faith, especially with younger generations. (See what I did there?)
We are also interested in first-person stories from younger Episcopalians and other Christians reflecting on faith practice and discipleship as you experience them. Youth are welcome to submit posts for consideration with parent/guardian approval.
Authors are not expected to be perfect or provide final answers to readers. Grow Christians is a place on the internet where we are all growing. This includes the editor.
Authors are expected to tell their own story, reflecting on how faith at home and with kids is working – and not working – in your own life.
We welcome posts that fit the following criteria:
- Between 600-800 words
- A real story about your own life or a reflection based on your experience
- About the practice of Christian faith at home, primarily with children and youth, or across generations
- Which makes reference to Scripture and/or reflects the traditions of The Episcopal Church/Anglican tradition
If you read Grow Christians, it is because the practice of faith matters to you in your own life. I’d love to read your story of practicing faith at home. I’d love the opportunity to publish it here. Grow Christians is still growing, and we want to invite you to come along for the ride.
Maybe you, too, have something to share, for the sake of growing Christians of every generation.
Write your words. Email them in.
Or, just keep reading. Either way, we’re glad you’re here.
