Summertime and the livin’ is…


How would you complete the above sentence?

The original lyrics to this classic musical song are as follows:


Summertime, and the livin’ is easy
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’
So hush little baby, Don’t you cry


I don’t know if the fish are jumpin and I haven’t seen any cotton around here lately. My daddy passed away six years ago, but I will have to say, My “ma is good-lookin”! No one has told me to “hush” in a long time and with the Olympics right around the corner this month, I am sure to cry, as I always do during the Olympics.


Summertime at MVPC and the livin’ is easy
Worshipers are jumpin (at least standing) and the love for one another is high

Oh, our Father God is rich in grace, mercy, love and care and the Pastor’s wife is good lookin’

So, don’t’ hush… make it loud fellows sojourners, lift up our voices in praise of our Lord!

And if we are going to cry… Cry out for peace, Cry out for justice, Cry out for love!

Summertime and the livin is…

The “livin’” is an honor, privilege and absolute joy to serve you and the Lord as your pastor.

The “livin’” is full of adventure as we move forward to be the church God desires.

The “livin’” is exactly that – Living in light of God’s grace, love, mercy, care and guiding hand.
Come join us!
Grace and peace,
Laugh often and Fear not!
