More Than Magic
"When I became interested in magic at the age of twelve, I never dreamed it would be this big a part of my life.  During the 40 years that I have been watching magic, studying magic, and performing magic, I have seen some amazing things.  I have seen spectacular stage illusions; I have seen intimate close-up magic.  However, in all my life, I have never seen anything as amazing as God's love.
"The most amazing thing to me about God's love is how God showed His love by sending His son, Jesus into the world.  Jesus, in turn, showed His love by giving His life for me and you so that we could have forgiveness for our sins, a meaningful and purposeful life here and now, and a place in heaven when life on earth ends.  It is amazing to think that God loves us that much ...  but He does.  All He asks in return is that we love Him and follow Him.
"I hope my tricks amaze you.  That is always one of my goals as a magical entertainer.   However, more than anything else, I hope you know the amazing love God has for you!"
~ ~ David Garrard
