King David Story Challenge

Hi there adventurers and honest seekers.

How is your day going?  Mine is going fine.  What is your favorite adventure story from the Bible?  There are quite a few to choose from.  Paul's travels and David's battles and Nehemiah rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem.  Plus so many more!

I like David's stories a lot.  David did not do everything right.  He faltered in sin many times, but he was open to admitting his sins when confronted about them.  He also fought many battles, showed mercy to King Saul (even when Saul did not deserve it), and he also wrote many Psalms that expressed his frustration and joy and have helped many millions more express both joy and anger, along with other emotions.

So here is my challenge to you.  Write a short story of an interaction between King David and a fictional character from one of your favorite franchises.  I warn you that the fictional franchises I know best are Stargate, Doctor Who, Star Wars, Marvel and DC.  I do know a fair amount of Star Trek knowledge as well but I have never watched DS-9.

Please limit the stories to 1,000 words or less.  The due date for this challenge will be November 8th.

The story I like the most that can help us discuss life issues and does a good job representing both characters will get published on this blog as a "Guest Entry".

Email your story to me:
