Sam has been pastor of Hope Friends Meeting for four months when a ninety-eight-year-old member, Olive Charles, passes away and leaves her entire estate--worth almost one million dollars--to the meeting.
It's not long before this unexpected windfall creates a storm of conflicting opinions amongst members of Sam's church as to how the money should be used. And to make matters worse, Olive's niece Regina threatens the church with a lawsuit over what she deems her rightful share.
Sam soon finds himself in over his head, trying to successfully deal with Regina's negotiations and lead his congregation to a decision.
