It’s October 1945. The war is over, and America’s years of prosperity are just beginning. But there’s another kind of rite of passage at the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, where the Reverend Mervin Oglethorpe is giving his last service. Having been called to preach in Texas, he’s already bought a 10-gallon hat and is preparing to ride into the sunset with his wife, June, who is eight months pregnant. Tomorrow morning June’s brother, Dennis, will take over as the congregation’s pastor.
Join the Sanders Family as they send Mervin and June off in style with hilarious and touching stories and 25 fabulous bluegrass gospel favorites.
