Internationals young writer Anna Waite won the Internationals Theology Award presented at the annual young writers conference on the Gold Coast on Saturday.
The Awards are presented at 4.00pm of the conference each year – there are a number of awards but with Covid 19 restrictions many were unable to attend in 2020.
Each of the Internationals young writers in the Press Service International program in conjunction with Christian Today sent in their BEST article for the five Panellists to mark out of 25 - the 25 mark was chosen as in previous years there have been too many multiple winners out of 10 marks.
The International’s Panellists
Vic Matthews - a theologian and author
Darren Lawson - headmaster and Olympian
Travis Barnes - a pastor and poet
Tony de Viewvitt - ret RAAF VIP Pilot
Alex Gillespie - a Post Grad
The Theology Award addresses the young writer’s grasp of the interlocking aspects of theological thinking and how the saving grace of Jesus powers thru.
There is a long list of celebrity young writers over the years who have been acknowledged for their astute theological appreciations.
Anna hails from Brisbane Australia but lives and works in South East Asia and is involved in mission agriculture and community cohesiveness. She enjoys travel, good coffee and getting to hang out with awesome people from around the world.
Anna’s sense of awareness of theology in her writing is powerful and instructive. It provides a rich vein of golden understanding and a crimson threat of the cross. Her articles carefully announce the messages that are bought to the reader who are left with heartfelt inspiration.
