A matter of mind and spirit

We asked our readers to submit photographs that convey the university’s hallmark theme, "a matter of mind and spirit." Here are the winning entries selected by a panel of George Fox artists, editors, and administrators.


First Place: Dodgeball

First Place: Dodgeball

"This is the Ugandan version of dodgeball, and in that little girl’s hand (on the left) is the ball. Most of these children have at least one parent who has died from AIDS. At least one of them is HIV positive. But every Saturday, they come together to uncover the playfulness that is often suppressed by the care of sick adults and strenuous chores at home. This picture shows a brief moment of the spirit and joy of children who otherwise live lives that require knowledge far ahead of their few years."

Krissi Carson (G03), Newberg, Ore.; current seminary student



Second Place: Water

Second Place: Water

"What I see in the created world makes me want to share it and to know and better understand the Creator. His mind and creativity inspire me to use all of who I am to reflect his beauty; mind, spirit, creativity, love."

Cam McMinn, Portland, Ore.



Third Place: Waiting

Third Place: Waiting

"This little one waits in a tiny health clinic in a refugee camp in Northern Uganda. It is stifling hot with ventilation and light supplied by one open door. You and I bring hope both directly and indirectly."

Ken Magee (n51), Klamath Falls, Ore.
