About the Book

This book is a collection of vignettes. The vignettes, while based on actual events, have (in most cases) been presented in a humorous manner and with a touch of artistic license. These vignettes provide lessons that can be learned, for the clergy, the diocese, the music directors, the staff, the church elders, and the congregants. Although the vignettes are about Orthodox, Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant houses of worship, I have masked the identity of the denominations. It is important to note that the vast majority of clergy, staff, and elders are dedicated to their profession, or position. The examples in this book are about those individuals who shouldn’t have been in any religious leadership position.

About the Author

Born and raised in the West, Smith grew up at a time when many farmers still used horses to plow their fields. Steam engines were the norm, and a diesel locomotive was unique. After serving in the Air Force, he worked as a teacher, and later as a church musician. He now lives in South Carolina.
