Episode Summary

EDIT
A small town church is putting on its Christmas pageant, and little Serena desperately wants to be the angel. Her slightly retarded friend Joey, must come to terms with the fact that Serena is dying of a heart condition. Joey is pathologically afraid of the dark--his parents went out into the night and never came back. Since then, his older brother Wayne has been his caregiver, and resented it. Monica reveals herself to Wayne, but he holds God responsible for his lousy life. When Serena dies the night of the pageant, Joey is led to the church by a bright star. Wayne is there, too. Monica takes Serena's place as the angel in the pageant. When the rope supporting her breaks, Monica rises with glory and power and the entire congregation is awed by her angelic revelation and message: "Fear Not."moreless

  • Terrific acting, some great singing and a wonderful Christmas episode.

    8.5
    This first Christmas special for the show was an excellent one with some terrific guest stars and an important message about hope.

    Serena and Joey are best friends but Joey is intellectually disabled and little Serena is dying of a heart condition. Monica and Tess arrive in their small town to fix the old church organ and to help Joey and his brother (played by Randy Travis) learn to love each other again and, along with Adam, to help young Serena pass over to her heavenly reward.

    A really uplifting episode in spite of being very sad in places. The singing alone was worth watching it for. Great work by all.moreless
