I was a late-comer to the weekly radio broadcasts of “Prairie Home Companion” headlined by the one-and-only, Garrison Keillor, back in 1983. I’ll never forget the mesmerizing effect of hearing humorous, yet honest, portrayals of what it means to live “in the world” while resisting being “of the world” from Keeler, whose own faith walk is admittedly never in center stage. Perhaps that’s what drew me to him: here was a secular guy who took us Lutherans seriously and did so with humor and great effect, without belittling us. Would that the rest of the secular world were as positive and balanced.
