Amen(1986 - 1991)
Deacon Ernest Frye was a holy terror. He was
the headstrong president of the First Community
Church of Philadelphia. The insufferable deacon
intended to keep the church under his thumb, but
the new minister, Rev. Reuben Gregory, had other
ideas. Every week the Reverend quietly deflated
the strutting deacon.
Thelma was the deacon's 30-year-old, unmarried,
romantically frustrated daughter, who eventually
began dating the handsome new pastor; Casietta
and Amelia, chatting sisters who were members
of the church board; and Rolly, the board's
wise old voice or reason.
