Ligonier Giveaway Winners

Giveaways / Free Stuff Fridays Collection cover image

The Ligonier Conference Giveaway I announced on Wednesday has now closed and the winners have been chosen. Each of the prizes is an admission pass to the conference (or, if a person entering the contest wished to take his or her spouse, a pair of passes).

A word about methodology for choosing the winners. As the emails came in, I added them to a folder in my inbox. After the contest closed I counted how many emails I had received. I then ran a small script that chose randomly from this list of numbers. I chose winners based on these numbers (so if the script chose number 52, I counted down to the 52nd entry I received).

And in this way I arrived at four winners. They are: Tim Ake, David Willis, and John Rabe with his wife (I’m sure she has a name but John did not include it in his email). I have contacted each of these people via email.

Thanks to all who entered. I hope you will still consider attending the conference and I will look forward to meeting you down in sunny Orlando.

  • Do Not Envy the Wicked

    Do You Envy the Wicked?

    It takes a long time for sinful instincts to become pure, for tendencies toward what is evil to be transformed into tendencies toward what is good, lovely, and pleasing to God. The man who quits drugs will still react when he catches a whiff and the woman who gave up alcoholism will still struggle when…
