'Church in the Wildwood' Performed By Andy Griffith And Don Knotts

In this throwback video, Andy Griffith and Don Knotts beautifully perform the song ‘Church in the Wildwood.’ “Come to the church by the wildwood Oh, come to the church in the vale No spot is so dear to my childhood As the little brown church in the vale How sweet on a clear Sabbath morning To listen to the clear ringing bells Its tones so sweetly are calling Oh come to the church in the vale” This lovely scene is from The Andy Griffith Show in 1963 and has Andy, Barney, Mr. Tucker, and Gomer Pyle in it. This was episode 16 of season 3, and it was titled Man in a Hurry. The episode was directed by Bob Sweeney and written by James Fritzell and Everett Greenbaum. Starring in the episode was Andy Griffith, Don Knotts, Robert Emhardt as Mr. Tucker, and Jim Nabors. This was a brilliant episode of The Andy Griffith Show. The acting was perfect, and the music was the cherry on top. This is the type of show that makes people feel nostalgic for a simpler time. “There are a few episodes that reveal Don Knotts could sing beautiful harmony,” writes one person on YouTube. “To the Mayberry cast: thanks for the memories.” “This song feels like ‘going home’. A feeling I hope everyone experiences,” another person writes. “We all need a place to go back to...a ‘home’.” “Fantastic episode, and this hymn is the wonderful centerpiece,” comments another person on YouTube. “One of the few television shows which encourage and inspire good morals and the fruits of the Spirit and teach us life lessons about loving our neighbor and walking in truth and honesty.” As you listen to ‘Church in the Wildwood’ from this episode, may the simplicity of the music fill you with peace and comfort.

Open your home to Jesus. Invite him in and prepare to give him your best, but don’t leave him sitting alone. Take the time to sit at His feet and listen as He fills you with the necessary Words of Truth you need to live this life. Then make that choice over and over again. May we all choose what is right, better, and the good portion each and every day.
