Old Ruddy's Questions
Historical Fiction / 33 views
Old Ruddy sits slumped and dejected on the railway bench. His life at the station is all that he has, and after forty years of faithful service that life seems to be slipping from his grasp.
“Take it to the Saviour!” a nameless traveller breaks into Ruddy’s silent grief.
But when the station whistle interrupts their conversation before the broken-down railway porter can ask the questions that are flooding his soul, Ruddy embarks on a remarkable quest to find the answers for himself.
Will Ruddy’s prayers bring the right travellers to the Tyneford-upon-Mere station? And if they come, will they have the answers Ruddy so desperately craves? Watch as the faith of one soul, groping blindly towards the light, begins to touch and transform lives beyond Old Ruddy’s wildest dreams.
Built around John Mason Neale’s translation of an 8th century hymn, and set against the backdrop of rural Victorian travel, Old Ruddy’s Questions will challenge you to take a closer look at the foundational truths of your faith—and the way those truths intersect with everyday life.
