Creative way of approaching the topic. I enjoyed your story, and the ending was clever and brought it home in a powerful way.

Great job!

God bless~
Brilliant! The end was a wonderful surprise. I had to re-read to match them up.
Maybe Caiaphas was also the only one who might be able to preach properly, and Gideon was certainly into church growth- but in reverse.

Wow! Great ending!
(I had to go back to find all the clues that I knew were there....but missed.)
Well done!

This was AWESOME! What a great take on the topic and it was brilliant the way you led us along with the candidates and revealed who they were at the end. I must be getting old and slow because I didn't see it coming. It's rare that a piece of writing surprises me so completely.

Great, great job! And congratulations on a second place finish - it was certainly well deserved.

Hey Gregory, welcome back to the Challenge, even though having you back makes it more of a Challenge for the rest of us.
Loved the humour that wafts through the story, before ambushing us at the end. Great work and God bless.
Congratulations on your placing.

Fascinating! All I can think of is "Wow!" I loved going back for the re-read to connect every dot. Great work and congrats!!

This unfolded wonderfully. At first, I was a little confused as to who was saying what but that quickly became apparent. Then, right around "N" and his giant boat I realized where you were going with it. So very creative and a smashing ending. Congratulations!

Congratulations on your 2nd place win! This is a great piece of writing which kept me in the dark till right at the end when all became clear with the 'sting in the tail' choice of pastor. Being on a selection panel right now I was extra intrigued. Great in humor and message and well deserving of its place.
