The Narrow

style="font-size: 11pt;">is a story about a
couple who must face their differences and learn to work together as they look
toward a lifetime of love. Miranda Klassen’s
Mennonite church is big and modern and she loves the mixture of faith, action, and
activity. But in order to follow her dream she moves across the country to a small
town to organize the 75th anniversary celebration of an Old
Order Mennonite church. Ted Wiebe has been assigned to assist and guide Miranda,
feeling good that his church has chosen another Mennonite. But except for sharing
the same basic faith and denomination, their churches have nothing else in common.
His church embraces old-style roots, so Ted expects to find someone similar at the
airport: a woman who never wears pants, no body piercing (including pierced ears),
no makeup, and wearing a head covering as a sign of modesty, someone else who lives
in accordance with old-fashioned values. But the woman who acknowledges him is
wearing unreasonably high and outlandishly expensive shoes, denim jeans, and makeup,
including bright red lipstick. As she gets off the plane she’s fiddling with an iPod
and yapping on the cell phone. When Miranda enters Ted’s church and community she
feels like she’s been transported back into Little House On The
. Ted is supposed to help Miranda fit in, and Miranda is supposed
to help his church reach out into the community. When it’s time to start planning
and organizing for the celebration, then the fun really begins.
