LutheranArts is pleased to announce those who have won awards for the Hymn Text Writing Competition. Christine Kallman and Sean Edison-Albright received majority votes from a five-person panel of jurors. Two theologians, two professors of English, and a visual arts specialist-curator conducted a blind study where they each chose five texts in ranked order.  As we congratulate Christine and Sean, we also offer special thanks to the many other writers who sent us their texts for hymns yet unsung.
