Levelled seminar graduate David Swenson gently tries to coach his screw-up former classmate Casey Hart when a small town parish which engaged her as short-term interim loses its sick pastor, so she's now on trial basis as 'senior minister'. The parish council has its doubts about her, especially elderly traditionalist pillar-biter Olivia Thompkins, who demands her dismissal when income drops due to theft and lesser donations.

Still, David helped trap the thief, enabling surprising ways out for various parties, as by God's mysterious ways.
