The Cross and the Jukebox: Me and Jesus
— Friday, January 28th, 2011 —
I used to feel guilty about enjoying Tom T. Hall’s “Me and Jesus.” It represented to me the individualistic, non-churchly, “do what I want to do” kind of pseudo-Christianity I’ve spent my whole life opposing. Still, I couldn’t help listening to it, and smiling when I did, but with kind of a guilty conscience.
I’ve changed my mind about “Me and Jesus.” On this episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox,” we listen to the song, and I tell you what turned me around. We’ll also talk about why this song resonates, with whom, and what the church can learn.
