Thanks to an unexpected windfall, Sam Gardner's congregation (with the exception of a few malcontents) is eager to expand their meetinghouse. But before building can commence, the County Environmental Board and the Department of Natural Resources put the quietus on the plan. A colony of endangered Indiana bats has made the tree beside the meetinghouse, and the meetinghouse attic, their place of residence. Until these fanged visitors leave for hibernation, Hope Friends Meeting is left without a gathering place. When an over-zealous Leonard Fink takes matters into his own hands, he may even land himself --- and Sam --- in jail.

When Quaker Pastor Sam Gardner is asked by the ill Unitarian minister to oversee a wedding in his place, Sam naturally agrees. It's not until the couple stands before him that he realizes they're two women. In the tempest of strong opinions and misunderstandings that follows the incident, Sam faces potential unemployment. Deeply discouraged, he wonders if his pastoral usefulness has come to an end. Perhaps it's time for a change.
