A former Catholic priest gives an account of his experiences as a Methodist lay preacher, and advocates for joint membership — Catholic and Methodist (the church of his ancestors). "A spiritual journal," the book includes 40 sermons as well as references to his religious life and to Church pronouncements that support his thesis — joint membership, which he sees as a path to re-unity in the Church Jesus founded.
