Ash Wednesday 

  Request this author
Gerald Schwartz is a pastor in crisis. His wife abandoned him for a lesbian relationship, his parishioners are defecting to a megachurch where the sacrament of Holy Communion has been replaced by an All-U-Can-Eat Communion Brunch Buffet, and his job is about to be handed over to a graduate of Armageddon Bible College. As the members of Abiding Truth battle over everything from the time for Sunday services to the color of the sign out front, Gerald struggles to hold on to his sanity and his faith. Filled with flawed yet endearing characters, Ash Wednesday presents an unsentimental comedic look at small town life, sexual mores, and the decline of mainline religion in contemporary America.
