Given an unusualname at birth, DORKY WALKERyearns to have a father, someoneto call Dad, and is doing his bestto help and please the preacher,but is defensive and suspicious ofthose he believes will make fun ofhis name. He has become reliant uponhis Light that helps lead and directhim. The Light shines in thedarkness of his closed eyes, blinkingoff and on to answer Dorkysquestions. It is God within him, theHoly Spirit. He rejects it when hethinks it has let him down by givinginjurious counsel, causing thepreachers old church to crumbleand slide into the swamp.
