Be A Winner for Jesus!

The aforementioned "Images of Atonement Contest" is up and running over at Emergent Village.

"In order for the rich benefits of alternative atonement theology to move beyond the circles of those who read theology books we must develop alternative imagery. We need not just a golf bag full of different explanations; we need a bag full of different imagery to use in conversations over coffee, in sermons, youth meetings, on blogs, etc. This contest aims to help this happen both through encouraging a wide number of people to work at developing an image, and then also by sharing the best images so that many others can use them."

Go ahead - try it out. Even if you don't win, it's good to stretch your mind around the broader meaning of atonement in our world.
