TALES FROM TRINITY is a Lutheran patchwork quilt. Pastor Paul Walker's family and church members are stitched together by a God who is always at work behind the scenes. Liz Sterling, church treasurer, is also at work behind the scenes, seeking a way to discredit Paul and have him removed as pastor. Accused of embezzling church funds, Paul searches for help to prove his innocence.
Mike Greenwood shares his personal journal of two significant losses during his high school years. His best friend, Brian, is found dead in the church. Mike's girlfriend dumps him in favor of the high-school quarterback, and then wonders how her life became such a mess. Meanwhile the pastor searches for Reiner Holtz, whose conspiracy theories have put him on the brink of insanity. In the midst of laughter and tears God's grace is pulling together a faith community of healing, hope, and joy.
If the tragedy and terror in Jim's first novel TERROR AT TRINITY made you uncomfortable, then TALES FROM TRINITY will be a fun, easy read, reminding some of Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon, or Jan Karon's Mitford series.
