Rev. Dr. Stephen Butler Murray, Minister

In 1991, the song that dominated the airwaves was "Summertime" by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince. This was Will Smith's contemporary meditation on "Summer Madness" by Kool & the Gang. Fast forward 27 years, and what does Summertime mean to us now? How might the lyrics of someone bathed in the blasting fire hydrants of Philadelphia mean to a city where water is turned off, where there is no respite from the heat? How do we deal with Summer Madness?
