Would you be surprised to learn that a Christian conservative from Michigan created the world's largest art competition? If so, you might also be surprised to learn that last year's winner of that competition was an Islamic cube created by an artist born in Pakistan. The event is called ArtPrize (Sept. 23-Oct. 11, 2015), and attracts over 23,000 visitors each day to Grand Rapids, Michigan including yours truly---Greg and Ernest.

Thought for today: Are you stuck living in the past, or do you have enough faith to create something new?
