Woven Threads is chapter 18 of Fine Line, sequel to Woodcutter’s Revival. Both historical fiction books are written by Jerry Slauter and set at the beginning of the final phase of the Industrial Revolution.

Since Pastor Douglas ministers at the Campus House in Purdue or other local churches on alternate Sundays, the church in Pence meets on Friday nights. The characters decide to meet at Mudlavia for super on Saturday night. The conversation, carried on from the sermon of the previous evening, can be found in the following excerpt:

Michael asked, “Does it seem the Holy Spirit has been on hold since the day of Pentecost and the rest of the Book of Acts was written?”

Richard paused in deep thought and answered, “There have been reports of miraculous events such as those recorded in the Book of Acts in mission fields around the world.”

Steward said, “Maybe America needs to be more primitive. It seems that our faith in science, industry, politics and reason has negated our need for the Holy Spirit.”

Pastor Richard said, “That’s why Jesus taught about not putting new wine into old skins or sewing new fibers and woven threads onto old cloth. The new wine and the new cloth are symbolic of the Holy Spirit. Old religion based upon the traditions of man will not hold. I hear reports of a spiritual revival taking place right now in the United States. It is occurring out on the west coast, in Los Angeles at a place called Azusa Street. The pastor is William Seymour.”

Michael asked, “How have you heard about the revival?”

Richard answered, “It’s been documented in the press, although my father chooses not to publish anything about it.”

Editor Richard defended himself, “I report on facts that I can see, or from credible witnesses, not fanatical accounts of alleged mystical occurrences.”

Pastor Richard smiled and continued, “Besides, I met William Seymour. He sends out ten- thousand newsletters recording the activities at Azusa Street.”

At this time the meal was served and talk was replaced with the clinking of silver utensils upon fine china. The guests ate leisurely and deliberately so as not to allow the meal and the moment to pass by too quickly. Occasional sighs and groans of satisfaction could also be heard.

Michael asked, “How’d you meet him?”

Richard said, “He was in Indiana."

Woodcutter's Revival is available now. Fine Line is due to be released in 2014.
