God in a box

by Patty Templeton

If you’re gonna get some God in ya, you might as well have young Johnny Cash shove it in there. The Man in Black, along with the lovely June Carter Cash, joined Billy Graham’s Western Carolina Crusade – fully televised, of course, back in the ’70s. Graham’s TV crusades and radio appearances garnered him a lifetime audience of 2.2 billion people – 3.2 million of those having supposedly accepted Jeebus as their own person savior.

Random note: “Hymns by Johnny Cash” is a jaunty collection of God-love. Forty-five years later, he put out “My Mother’s Songbook.” Less jaunty, deeper feeling. All of it good for a Sunday of porch bourbon, friends, and singing along.
