A Cambridge undergraduate was much impressed with a preacher who had an arresting message & a lovely face, with a calm & peaceful expression.
"I should suppose," said the university man, "that preacher spends most of his time in prayer & preparation in his study, apart from the din & noise of ordinary life."
Smiling rather knowingly, the older friend said, "Would you like to meet him?"
The young man said he would & they arranged to meet on a Monday morning outside of St. Paul's Cathedral. Pushing his way through the swinging doors of a large London business firm, the old friend introduced his young companion to the man with the beautiful message & calm countenance, sitting at his desk immersed in business.
"My young friend is very anxious to know about your occupation," said the older man.
"My occupation? My occupation is to wait for His Son from Heaven & meanwhile I make buttons."
