7th HEAVEN/WB/1996-2007 (Epilepsy)
Tom Harrison (Paul Johansson), former pastor at the Glenoak church based in the town of Glenoak, California.
On episode No. 17 “Choices” Tom returns to Glenoak to visit the Camdens.
Tom was Reverend Eric Camden’s assistant pastor before moving to his own congregation. Unfortunately, Tom had a secret. He had epilepsy and was ashamed to let anyone know about it.
When he had a grand mal seizure in front of his new congregation he felt that he could no longer stay in the church after seeing the looks of his parishioners when he awoke.
He visited with the Camdens and after a soul searching few days, he told Pastor Camden about his condition.
Eventually, Tom realized he couldn’t run away from his problem or his congregation and decided to return to his flock.
