Reverend Ben has been ignoring his health recently, and its finally caught up with him in the form of a heart problem requiring bypass surgery. Since Ben will need six weeks of recuperation and physical rehab, an interim minister is assigned to the congregation.
Reverend Isabel Moran is young, but she has a quiet but steady way of connecting with the members of the church. While most of the congregation was troubled by the absence of Reverend Ben, Isabel has ultimately reassured them with her warmth and understanding.
Meanwhile, Ben has secretly been considering when he should retire. Is this health setback a sign from above that its time to start a new phase of his life? As Ben grows stronger, he starts to wonder if hes really ready to celebrate his final Christmas as pastor. After all, Christmas is a time for giving, but retiring and presenting Isabel with his much-treasured job might be the biggest test of faith Ben has ever had to face…
