Welcome to the Zoo

Welcome to the Zoo October 21, 2009

welcome to the zooRecently Calvary staged a talent show, during which we learned (if we didn’t know already) that we have quite a talented congregation.  One of the highlights of the day was a song, written and performed by Eric Bebber.  This musical masterpiece is a fitting tribute to this crazy, wonderful community of faith.  Enjoy.

A different kind of Baptist

Folks like me and you

Some people call us hippy church

But we call it the zoo!

You won’t find any animals here

Only a diverse community

And from extremely odd situations

We have no immunity

(Chorus)

We’ve had…

Arrests in worship

Sirens in the sermon

Loud outbursts

And even a few hairy little vermin

We’ve got…

Republicans and Democrats

Superhero visitors

A man on a banjo

And three female ministers

You know, the staff at Calvary

Are a crazy bunch of folks

I’ve never laughed so hard in the workplace

As I have at Harold’s jokes

(Chorus again)

We have so many ministries here

To care for our sisters and brothers

But the best part about Calvary

Is our love for God and each other

. . . It’s why I love the zoooooo!
