The Sermon is the first episode of Season 4 of The Waltons.

Recurring Role


Miss Hunter and the Rev. Fordwick make plans for their wedding and a short honeymoon. Their wedding plans rely, however, on Olivia taking Miss Hunter's place as the teacher of the school, and on John-Boy standing in for the Rev. Fordwick and delivering the Sunday sermon in church. Both of them find their tasks challenging, especially John-Boy who feels that he really has nothing profound to say to the congregation. As he watches his family and friends during that week, however, his sermon is gradually written and he realises just how important it is to be tolerant of people's differences and that it is important to treasure these differences.
