‘There Was Jesus’

This song of Zach Williams and Dolly Parton is a good expression of the religious folk consciousness of the South (thanks to one of my cousins for the link):

Nothing lasting can be built from the emotionalism underlying the song.  Ne’ertheless, it is a sign that Christianity has not withered away entirely in the Southland that songs like this continue to be written by Southerners and to be enjoyed by millions of their fellow Southrons.  May the Lord help us to build something solid from them.


Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!

Anathema to the Union!
