The sequel to the first season’s Christmas episode “Fear Not”, “The Feather” continues the story of a little church’s congregation now that they’ve seen Monica reveal herself in all her glory. Awed, trying to figure out what it all means, the congregation is susceptible to CHARLES, a con artist posing as a preacher. He seizes a feather which fell from Monica’s dove and holds it up to the congregation as physical proof of the miracle. He’s diverting piles of donation offerings into his own pockets when he’s confronted by WAYNE (Randy Travis)–who turns out to be his brother.

Years ago, Charles and Wayne ran the preacher scam together; Wayne is now a reformed man and he’s determined to stop Charles. The issue is brought to a head when Joey, who’s been ministering to a crack baby that was left in the church, brings the infant to Charles for a healing. Charles can’t do it, of course, but Monica reveals herself again and reminds the congregation that they worshipped a feather instead of a King and their need for fame deafened them to the cries of a little baby. Charles is humbled and the congregation is once again put on the right track.
