Keep the drums rolling . . . with pleasure we announce the top six nominees for our Daringly Awkward Sermon Contest (because social change is a bit  awkward). Three of the following sermons (in alphabetical order by author) will be named winners, with winning preachers receiving $400 each.

Standing up for what you believe is awkward, especially when you yourself are part of the problem. Each of the sermons in some way identifies the struggle of responding to social injustice with compassion and complicity. We’ll announce the winners in our summer issue, Geez 14, set to ship mid-late May.

Thanks to all the sermon contributors,

Aiden Enns, publisher, co-editor, Geez magazine

Reverend Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping Gospel choir are singing the gospel of strong local neighbourhoods on the streets of New York. Officially a Green Party candidate, Reverend Billy Talen is running for mayor on a platform that will sustain recessions: let’s stop the rampant consumerism, support each other, and shun the ethics and aesthetics of corporate America.
