Articles/Essays – Volume 55, No. 4


Editor’s Note: In 2021, Dialogue hosted a writing contest titled Bodies of Christ with the following parameters:

Dialogue seeks submissions of poetry (up to 100 lines), short fiction (3500–6000 words), and personal voice (nonfiction, narrative essays, 250–3000 words) centered around our theme. Submissions should fit Dialogue’s mission, and the work or author should have a Latter-day Saint/Mormon connection (past or present). Submissions for this theme can encompass any subject that wrestles with the confluence of body and spirit, the temporal and the spiritual, the imperfect body and perfection embodied (cf. 1 Cor. 6:19–20; 12:12–13; Romans 12:1–5; 2 Cor. 12:7–10.)

We received numerous excellent submissions. In this issue we are pleased to present the winner of the contest.
