The Apostles Ate Stew
A collection of humorous Easter and springtime stories about the misadventures of the congregation, clergy, and staff of a small town church as they make sacrifices for Lent, hold sunrise service on a particularly cold Easter morning, see their children's egg hunts disrupted by excessively spirited youngsters, and experience a miracle during a pancake breakfast... plus much more!

In the town of Normal, Pennsylvania, there’s a little green church at the corner of Wilson and Elm…
So begins each story of the misadventures of the congregation, clergy, and staff of a small town church. “The Apostles Ate Stew” collects stories of Easter and springtime. You’ll read about the Lenten travails of Pastor Henry O’Donnell when his wife insists he give up unhealthy food, the unexpected chaos that arises whenever dedicated Sunday school teacher Karen Winslow throws a children’s Easter party, and the trials that an especially cold morning can cause for a sunrise service. Several stories tell of how the church recovers from a minor flood, including a pancake breakfast fundraiser that presents an unexpected miracle for the small congregation to interpret. Through it all Pastor O’Donnell’s teenage daughter, Katie, alternately embarrasses and is embarrassed by her father.
No matter what denomination you are, if you attend a church you’ll undoubtedly relate to the holiday chaos at the Little Green Church in Normal, Pennsylvania.
