Fresh out of seminary and called to be the minister of a rural church, Pastor Paul is full of zeal. The question is . . . zeal for what? As he chases affirmation and prestige, his guardian angel grows increasingly frustrated. When Paul dismisses the prophetic gifts of an elderly parishioner---deeming her a "wacko"----but who will hear, "Well done good and faithful servant?
Pastor Paul is a young seminary graduate called as interim pastor to a small rural church. He is full of zeal, but mostly for self-promotion. He sincerely loves the Lord but his past emotional wounds leave him vulnerable and in need of attention and affirmation. He constantly frustrates his angel, Saldu, who tries to steer him toward a more humble attitude. Sarah Edwards is a new church member, a recent widow who gets saved at age 71. Unknown to her, Sarah has two angels to help disciple her and she is maturing rapidly in the faith. She is confused by her prophetic gifting, which leads her to offend some church members. She also prayer walks in front of Pastor Pauls house. When his wife sees her pacing back and forth "talking to no one," Paul quickly writes her off as a "wacko." Through the lives of Paul and Sarah you will see that the really wonderful news is that living a life pleasing to God has nothing to do with gritting your teeth and trying harder (again and again and again). God rewards you for simple, loving, serving actions throughout your days, stepping outside your own concerns to truly see others in His name.
