"The truth is that there is only one terminal dignity -- love. And the story of a love is not important -- what is important is that one is capable of love. It is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity." --Helen Hayes

Talk about a man with an eternal message. At least 50 times a day for more than 30 years he wrote the word 'Eternity' in chalk all across the public streets and sidewalks of Sydney.

It was the promise of a free meal that led to an encounter that would dramatically change his life. Read the story in Stace's own words -- and see the elegantly written sermon he delivered over half a million times in the last three decades of his life, as featured on the Sydney bridge during the Olympics in 2000!
