In the face of dwindling church attendance and threats on his life, Reverend Matt Jamison continues to preach his gospel: that many who disappeared in the Departure were sinners and not saints. Matt's campaign is detoured when he learns he may lose the church to foreclosure, forcing him to launch a desperate, last-minute plan to come up with the cash to keep it.
Did You Know?
The title is a reference to a joke - The town is flooded and the preacher climbs to the roof of his church so as not to drown. A man in a rowboat tries to rescue him but the preacher refuses to get in, saying "the Lord will save me." A man in a motorboat tries to rescue him but the preacher refuses to get in, saying "the Lord will save me." Man in a helicopter tries to rescue him, but the preacher refuses to get in, saying "the Lord will save me." The preacher eventually drowns and when he meets God in heaven he asks "Oh Lord, why didn't you save me?" And the Lord replied "I sent two boats and a helicopter, what else would you have Me do?"

Matt is the priest at an Episcopal church. In the Episcopal church, the actual church building belongs to the Diocese, not to the congregation. Therefore Matt could not have borrowed money using the building as collateral, could not have been foreclosed on by the bank and the bank could not have sold the building to the GRs. The Diocese would have had to declare the church to be closed and then sold it. See more
