Watching Walk The Line, a movie based on the life of Johnny Cash.
It leaves the narrative of his life after a certain point, which means the Christian faith of his later life doesn’t get hugely engaged with.
Like most movies this one doesn’t quite know what to do with faith, and representing Cash’s faith is pretty complex.
Cash’s life was one that needed grace.
Among the hymns he recorded, Farther Along expresses that complexity of faith, trust, and the need for grace.
