Winner: 2011 Best Original Written Piece

Signs Award - Manifest 2011
March 26, 2011

The Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South Pacific has honoured its creative artists at the inaugural Manifest Creative Arts Festival.

Manifest, coordinated by the church through Adventist Media Network (AMN) and Avondale College, in 2011 focused on filmmaking; song composing; and writing.

Scott Wegener received the Signs Award, in the category of Writing,  for “Know misunderstandings.” The article uses humorous misunderstandings to challenge the reader about the beliefs with which they identify.

AMN chief executive officer Neale Schofield affirmed creatives in his keynote by reminding them their gift can “revolutionise” the spreading of the gospel. “You may feel the church is not ready for you,” he said. “Well, the world is. Take this as a signal God wants you to do something much bigger in your life.”

Another of the festival’s speakers, Adventist writer Kay Rizzo, the author of 58 books, added. “Creativity will happen, whether we support it or not, so why should we lose it to the world?”

Know Misunderstanding


Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to use a hairdresser you can understand.  There was a time when I regularly visited a local hairdresser for convenience sake, even though I could hardly understand his strong European accent. In fact, I found him so hard to understand that I had to ask him to repeat every question.
After a few visits I found myself starting to guess what he was asking, which usually turned out ok. However, one time I was truly baffled when he asked “Zurimeiwows?”
