Interesting setting! I've often thought of the guards around Peter and Paul. I"m sure they got a preaching to everytime.
Your characters are lively and lifelike. I felt like a little mouse in a pocket, listening to their conversation.

Your title was very appropriate for this entry! Good job in portraying your MC's.

This is so well told that I pictured the entire scene being acted out on a church stage. This would be a great setup for a sermon on spiritual gifts. I also enjoyed your scriptural tie-in at the end to put the exclamation point on the message. Great piece!

Unique place to share the gifts God has given! I can think of no better place to reach out and share the gospel than a prison.

I loved it. Your story was very much like a parable.

Very good--this reads almost like a drama rather than a short story. Get your church to stage it!
This was presented clearly, ralistically and in an interesting manner--right on topic.

Congratulations on your EC. This is well written, and a good take on the topic. Great way to show our gifts can/should be used -- whatever our circumstances.

Congrats on your EC placing. I found this article quite touching and the humor was a pleasant surprise considering the setting.

Love it! Not only did the prisoner bring the guard to Christ, he is now discipling him, teaching him about the gifts of the Spirit. I think he has more than discernment. Well done, and congrats on your EC!
