Psalm 104 paints a grand picture of the glory of the created world and God’s sustaining hand intimately at work throughout various ecosystems. The psalmist praises God for his wisdom (vs.24) and directly portrays what we would consider “natural phenomena” as the work of God. He then concludes the Psalm connecting his “meditation” on the works of the Lord as a source of his rejoicing (vs.34).
How do you see God providing for His creatures? How do you connect ecology with God’s providence? This year’s photo-contest is a challenge to capture this idea in a photo and write your own “Psalm 104” meditating on God at work in creation!
Dordt College is inviting all high school students to more deeply explore the beauty and voice of creation through their participation in a photo contest. Students will submit a photo, and an essay describing their photo, that they feel exemplifies the theme, “All Creatures Look to You”.
Digital photo submissions will be accepted online until October 16. Submissions will be evaluated based on the quality of the photograph and on the students’ ability to explain how the photograph illustrates the reality of “All Creatures Look to You.” By November 3, winners will be selected by a panel of judges. Cash prizes will be awarded as follows:
