We are pleased to celebrate the news that Steve Kennedy, the former editor of our testimony magazine, and Duane Henry, PAOC pastor and freelance writer for testimony/Enrich, came out winners at the online 2022 Word Awards. The Word Awards recognize the best work published in the previous year in many categories of writing, including novels, non-fiction books, articles, columns, poems, song lyrics, scripts and screenplays.
Steve Kennedy won an award in the "Personal Opinion" category for his article "The Other Boys of Bethlehem—Living in the Shadow of an Ancient Story" which was published in the Fall 2021 issue of testimony/Enrich. (Read the article here.)
Duane Henry won an award in the "Profile/Human Interest" category for his article "Celebrating the Life of Josiah Henson" which was published in the Winter 2021 issue. (Read the article here).
The Word Awards was established by the Word Guild to encourage the pursuit of excellence in the art, craft, practice and ministry of writing and help to raise the profile of Canadian writers who are Christian. The ultimate vision is to positively influence individuals—and ultimately the Canadian culture—through life-changing words that bring God’s message of hope.
The Word Guild is a growing community of more than 325 Canadian writers, editors, speakers, publishers, booksellers, librarians and other interested individuals who are Christian. From all parts of Canada and many denominational and cultural backgrounds, we affirm a common statement of faith and are united in our passion for the written word.
Congratulations again, Steve and Duane!
