Jesus Taught the Parable of the Lamp

 

Luke 8:16-18

 

When we take the teaching of Jesus Christ

To heart, we become the light of the world.

Let’s help other people get to Heaven.

Lighted paths lead to our eternal life.

 

Sports Faith recognizes people who are

Successful in sports while leading lives that

Are exemplary.  We honor athletes,

Coaches, and teams on Pentecost Vigil.

 

The common denominator of Sports

Faith Hall of Famers is that they think they

Don’t deserve it.  So, I offer a Jack

Benny quote.  “I really don’t deserve this

Award.  Then again, I have arthritis

And I don’t deserve that either.”  Amen.
