A Value Worth Holding:
Based upon John Galsworthy’s classic 1912 short story “Quality,” the Master Craftsman is a charming character study of a 19th century English gentleman’s reminiscences of an elderly, seemingly eccentric boot maker, Mr. Gessler.
Gessler is painstaking in his craft, not because he is a “work-aholic,” but because he seeks to please that all important audience of one, God. This inspirational drama illustrates doing one’s work “heartily unto the Lord” is a value worth holding.
