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 Christian friend. The young diver never really paid much
attention to his friend's sermons, but he heard them often. 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.
The man felt a strange feeling,like someone was speaking to him. Instead of diving, he
knelt down and finally 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.
