As I near 6 years of sobriety, I am reflecting on the journey of this book

Excerpt from my upcoming novel “Belly of the Church”

This would be his last church.  He had been retired for 14 years, but he had remained a part of the Presbytery’s life’s blood until the day he died; chairing committees, helping fledgling churches, helping struggling churches.  A man like Reverend Horace Glover could never really retire. He was tireless in his duty, his love, …
