  • SWEET 16: Marion ends Lady Bearcat title hopes in Final Four

  • Need the light of Christ to drive out the darkness

    “…God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5)
    Craig Larson tells the story of an old desert nomad who awoke one night to a growling stomach. He lit a candle and began eating dates from a bowl beside his bed. He took a bite from one end and saw a worm in it, so he threw it from the tent. He bit into the second date, found another worm, and threw it away as well.
    Thinking that he wouldn’t have any dates left to eat if he continued, he blew out the candle and ate the remaining dates.
