Caption Contest

You can win one of five free memberships to!


It's time for another contest! Huzzah! As usual, this contest is very simple to enter. And, as usual, it makes fun of me.

You've noticed the picture of my riding a donkey by now, I'm sure. This was taken in Israel on an amazing trip I had the privilege of being a part of back in December. I was with a group of Evangelical journalists, and we saw ancient cities and historical sites that added a new level of depth to our understanding of the Bible. We also had the chance to experience the modern culture and diverse population that makes up Israel today.

But enough about that—let's talk about the contest. To enter, simply think of a caption to this photo. And when you think of one, post it in the Comments section below. (Be sure to include your email address so that we can contact you if you are a winner.)

The staff will choose five winning captions based on these criteria:

  1. Keep it clean. (This is a family friendly blog, after all.)
  2. Try to connect your caption to small groups in some way.
  3. Creativity and humor are the best ways to catch the judges' attention.

Winners will be chosen on the last day of February and will receive a free, one-year membership to (Winners who are already members will have their subscription extended by a year.)

Good luck!
