Willie Nelson

“Rock of ages, rock of ages cleft for me.”

I love this Willie Nelson song, “Family Bible,” because I’m a fan of alt-country and Americana. But like any good country song, it also makes me a little sad, as it describes an America already long past. Nelson sings of his childhood, when families gathered — not around the Wii console, or their smart phones — but around the table, to share a meal, and hear a reading from the Bible. The daily Scripture readings are beautiful. Read them every night as you say your night prayers.  Listen to “Family Bible” here:
