FOR THE GLORY OF GOD

This is a story, poetic in its simplicity, of youth and innocence in the service of God. Carl, 19, a seminary student, was sent by his bishop to replace elderly Rev. Mr. Massey, in a small mountain top village which had a miniature cathedral. But the cathedral had no congregation because it had been built by Grover Kane, a vicious man, who in his final days, had tried to bargain for eternity with God by offering a cathedral ""For the Glory of God"". Carl thought it was his youth that kept people away. Miles Stoner told Carl the story of Kane and how the cathedral was built; he would not attend the church. Carl knew that the church needed only one other -""wherever two or three gather in My Name..."" and Stoner, reluctantly, became that first other. A brief, beautiful tale told with delicacy and sensibility.
