Guidelines For Writing

  • Maximum Length: 300 words
  • Write from your own context to a global audience. Members and Friends from around the world subscribe to Daily Bread. Be mindful of culturally specific references and images as you write. 
  • Write in your own voice, as a representative of Community of Christ. Daily Bread is a ministry of Community of Christ, which seeks to embody the identity, message, mission, and beliefs of the church through diverse expression of voices and stories. For further guidance review our Who We Are webpage
  • It is important that the writing be your own work, using only very general paraphrases of copyrighted materials, if at all. The sources of any specific quotes must be referenced in detail.
  • The Daily Bread editing team chooses the daily scripture and spiritual practice. You do not need to include these with your story, but you are welcome to suggest a scripture if it has relevance for your story.
  • All material submitted is subject to editing and approval, and will be copyrighted by Community of Christ for use including, but not limited to, print, film, electronic media, and reproduction or digital representation on the internet.
