A young man who had been raised as an atheist
was training to be an Olympic diver. The only
religious influence in his life came from his outspoken
religious friend. The young diver never really paid much
attention to his friend's sermons, but he heard them
One night, the diver went to the indoor pool at the
college he attended. The lights were all off, but as
the pool had big skylights and the moon was bright,
there was plenty of light to practice by.
The young man climbed up to the highest diving board
and as he turned his back to the pool on the edge of
the board and extended his arms out, he saw his
shadow on the wall.
The shadow of his body was in the shape of a cross.
Instead of diving, he knelt down and asked God to come
into his life. As the young man stood, a maintenance
man walked in and turned the lights on.
The pool had been drained for repairs.
