All articles should not be more than 400 words. Exceptions are long reads which are usually one or two (depending on the volume of the magazine) per edition. Long reads (between 2,500 and 10,000 words) are excellent stories that are the centerpiece of any edition. It must be written by someone who really has something to say on an issue, oftentimes from personal experience not hearsay or opinions.
Kindly limit scriptural quotations per article to two: one at the beginning and the other, at the end. For balance, one from the old testament and the other, from the new testament.
Finally, all authors must express their thoughts clearly using everyday examples that readers can easily connect to.
