    • Opening Narration: The pattern of our lives was broken by the war, and the old ways of the past became less a part of us when we returned home. So long as our mother and grandmother were there to shepherd us, the church was central to our lives. But without them on the scene some of the family found it easy to backslide, and as interest in the church slipped away it didn't seem possible that events would join to bring them back again.

    • Closing Narration: It was a joyous night for Jason and Toni. The problems which they faced together were made smoother by the family and by old friends who grew more interested in the things that brought them together, than those that might separate them. Truly, it was a beginning.

    Notes (2)

    • The German episode title is "Toleranz ist nur ein Wort", meaning "Tolerance is only a Word".

    • Now taking on the recurring role of Rev. Tom Marshall, Kip Niven previously appeared in an unrelated role in season seven's "The Pin-Up."
