Nothing too 'small' for God

A couple weeks ago I was eating some popcorn and one of the hulls ended up at the far back of my throat or tongue—I couldn’t tell which.
From the Editors

I see the light!

Darkness has never once, in all of history, created anything, destroyed anything, or caused even the slightest change.
