The Candlemaker (cartoon)
- Many years ago, before there were any automobiles and before we had electricity or even gas lighting and when people used horses if they wanted to go out for a ride and oil lamps and candles if they needed a light, there lived in a small country town, yes, a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick-maker. With just over a week to go before Christmas, the townspeople were busy indeed and none more so than the candlemaker and his young son, Tom. For in those days, quite small boys were expected to behave like grown men.
- And so it was, many years ago, that the candlemaker's son learned the meaning of Christian stewardship, just as we must learn it today.
