19th Annual Divine Principle Lecture Contest
Martin Herbst, a junior, took first place in the Divine Principle Lecture Contest on May 15th. Speaking on The Purpose of Creation, Martin used his own experience as a father of four children to effectively portray God's expectation of humankind. "Parents always want their children to be better than they are," he said. "I want my children to be smarter than me and more beautiful than me - if that's possible! God too wants humankind to be better and that's why he gave us the three blessings."
