Grove City professors win Amy Writing Awards
GROVE CITY – Two Grove City College professors won coveted Amy Writing Awards for columns they penned in 2013 applying biblical principles to real-world events.
Dr. Paul G. Kengor, professor of political science, and Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson, associate professor of economics, each picked up an Award of Outstanding Merit and a $1,000 prize for their work. Kengor earned his award for “Defender of Biblical and Natural Law,” which was published by The American Spectator on Dec. 24, 2013. Hendrickson was recognized for “Uncle Sam to American’s ‘Wise Virgins’: Drop Dead,” which was published by Forbes on Aug. 29, 2013.
“The Awards are designed to recognize creative, skillful journalism that applies biblical principles to stories about issues and lives. The goal is for non-Christian readers to see the relevance of biblical truth and for Christian readers to become disciples,” according to the Amy Foundation. Award-winning entries must be published in “secular journalistic outlets.”
Kengor is executive director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College and a best-selling author. His latest book is “11 Principles of a Reagan Conservative.” Hendrickson is a regular contributor to Forbes and other outlets. Their work appears regularly in a variety of print and online publications.

Revival can come to others if it first comes to believers seeking Kingdom
As a pastor and as a Christian, I often hear from other Christians lamenting that if they could only get the world to conform to their image everything would be better in our society, and thus the world. I would concede that if the whole world would conform to the image of God as taught in Romans 12:1-2 things would be ... Heavenly. Alas, that is not for this world but for the Kingdom to come.

We recently celebrated Independence Day. Under the providential hand of God, our country gained its freedom from the greatest power on earth, and has kept it for over 200 years. Do we realize how much freedom we have lost? We still live in the greatest country on earth, but if we do not turn back to God, that will not remain true.

We may not want to get real with others, but we can with God
“Get real!” was a phrase that was once popular. Few, if any, of us present our real self to others. We tend to show the side of ourselves that seems most acceptable and safe. At times this is appropriate and wise. But hiding our real self can make it difficult for people to accept us and love us as we are.
