Item description for Leaving North Haven: The Further Adventures of a Small-Town Pastor by Michael L. Lindvall...
Overview Ten years of pastoring in the Minnesota town of North Haven have given the Rev. David Battles a keen appreciation for grace in ordinary lives. In his final year with the lovable, always memorable people in his congregation, Battles recounts the pathos and humor of what happens in their lives between one All Saints Day and the next.
Like its predecessor, "Good News from Haven," "Leaving North Haven" is a collection of related stories following one year in the life of the wise and understanding pastor of a small Presbyterian Church, Rev. David Battles. The books are set in the fictional town of North Haven, Minnesota.
North Haven is a place that has seen better days and Battles is torn by his love for the rhythms and folkways of the tiny village and his longing for a more glamorous assignment. Fans of Good News from North Haven will be pleased to encounter many of the same characters in the sequel, though the two can be read independently. In Leaving North Haven, Lindvall's storytelling is keener than ever, weaving emotion and compassion with gentle humor.

True expressions of what it means to pastor Dec 24, 2002
I heard Michael Lindvall read some of these stories before the book was published and I'd been waiting over a year for my copy. The stories are a little uneven and none are as funny as some in the first book, but I'm very happy to have my copy and I'll share it with others at my Presbyterian Church. The very best story is Our Organist. I cried when I first heard it and I cry reading it. The whole world needs to know of the openness of many churches. It is not an easy job to pastor especially in the small, rural church. Michael Lindvall expresses some of the doubts and triumphs that a minister feels.
