    St. Mark’s to sponsor Doom
or Bloom’ contest
As the year 2000 approaches, peo
ple all over the world are preparing for
what it may bring.
Many are buying generators, extra
food and extra supplies.
But Saint Mark’s on the Campus
Episcopal Church, 1309 R St., is using
the coming of the millennium in anoth
er way.
The church is sponsoring a writ
ing/art contest titled “Doom or Bloom?
Creative Christian Visions of the New
“The contest brings attention on the
new millennium from a Christian view
point,” said Margo Young, a member of
St. Mark’s Committee on the Arts.
Some Christians may associate the
millennium with the Day of Wrath, or
Judgment Day, while others may see it
as a time of rebirth and renewal. From
these different views came the “Doom
or Bloom” theme.
The contest is open to the communi
ty and includes short stories, poems,
imaginative essays and reproducible
black and white artwork and photos that
represent the full range of attitudes and
Entries are due June 15 at the
church office. There will be $50 prizes

In the fall, St. Mark’s will publish a
selection of the entries.

the chance to get additional informa
tion about individual pieces without
the trouble of having to follow a large
tour group. The audio tour is self
directing, so time is not an issue as par
ticipants move through the exhibit as
slowly or quickly as they please.
A supplemental lecture series
begins April 11, while a film series,
featuring both Hollywood and
Egyptian films dealing with archae
ology and Egypt, begins June 11 with
Steven Spielberg’s “Raiders of the
Lost Ark.” “Cleopatra,” “The
Mummy” and a 1989 movie
described as “Thelma and Louise -
Egyptian style” called “Dreams of
Hind and Camilla” will finish out the
series July 16.
The exhibit’s strength lies in its
ability to cover an enormous time
span - 3,000 years worth of artifacts.
And for an ancient culture whose
reach has extended even into the Top
40 with the Bangles’ hit, “Walk Like
an Egyptian” it is only fitting that

What people weren’t looking
for on the first Easter.
Instead people were searching for the body of Jesus of Nazareth. A man who had claimed to be God.
A man who said he would prove his deity by bodily rising from the dead. No other religious
leader has made such a claim and backed it up with such an event.
Call today for a free article that gives the reasons that Jesus really is God and wants to have
a relationship with you. Call 938-7099 for the free article Beyond Blind Faith.
