The Search Committee

This book about a group of church members seeking a new pastor was delightful. I enjoyed reliving memories as a pastor's wife when search committees came to the churches where my husband was pastor.

This humorous story of a group of diverse people seeking a pastor tells about each person's personality and their efforts to work together for the good of the church. Sometimes there were conflicts, as there are when any group works together.

The surprise ending will not be revealed here, but if you read it, you will be surprised at what happens after the committee works together for a year, when they finally decide on who to recommend as their next pastor.

I downloaded this book free from Kindle and it was a quick read. The author is Tim Owens. The way he writes tells me that he has been around churches and church committees a long time!
