The Contenders
All of us look for an arena in which we can fairly and proudly contend…..
We are here to pick our arena and to train for the day we can contend in it….

Bronze Tablet
There is a day of sunny rest
For every dark and troubled night
And grief may bide an evening guest
But joy shall come with every light.
God hath marked each sorrowing day
And numbered every secret tear.
And heaven’s long age of bliss shall pay
For all His children suffer here.
From ‘Comfort’ by William Cullen Bryant
