Something to ponder during Lent
First, a story (which I mentioned in a sermon last fall). Some two hundred years ago, in the early days of gas street lights, the cities in England employed lamplighters. You see, each light had to be lit manually every evening. The lamplighter would go from light to light putting a ladder up against the lamp post, climbing up with his torch, lighting the lantern, climbing back down and moving on to the next one.
