An English In Kentucky


















Tuesday October 8th 2013  Tim Candler


     Through the course of being present in the world, I  have been gainfully employed on a number of occasions.  I have for example stood upon a street corner and waited for an employer to point "You" at me through the window of his vehicle. A judgment on his part that of those gathered in the morning sun, I would suit his purpose.

     But best not to let the prospect of a day's pay put too great a  scamper into your movements.  The rule book on earth suggests an amiable saunter, a smile and a shrug.  The ride to a day's pay is not winged chariot, the trumpet of angels at the gate to paradise.  Which I sometimes think is the error made by Christian thinkers.
