Anglican Episcopal House of Studies (AEHS) students Kevin Rose and John Zambaneni were recognized recently for their entries in a national essay contest run by The Living Church magazine. The fifth annual Student Essays in Christian Wisdom competition attracted papers from students enrolled in seminaries and divinity schools across the Anglican Communion. Two of the top three prizes went to students from Duke Divinity School.

Kevin Rose’s essay, entitled "Eating One's Fill and Throwing It Up Again: Food as Outpouring of Worldview in 14th and 18th Century Europe," garnered second place and a cash prize of $250. Rose, M.Div. '16, hopes to pursue doctoral work in the feild of American religion after graduation.

With a third place finish, John Zambenini’s essay entitled “The hope we don’t have and the hope we do: A reflection on Philippians and being alive today” won a cash prize of $175. Zambenini, M.Div. ’15, is pursuing ordination in the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA).  Before divinity school, he worked in politics, journalism, and higher education.
