First Church of Lake Wobegon

There's a little bit of Lake Wobegon in every church.

According to Garrison Keillor, Lake Wobegon is a place where:

  • all the women are strong,
  • all the men are good-looking, and
  • all the children are above average.
And church people will tell you:
  • Their pastor preaches better than average.
  • Their teachers teach better than average.
  • Their people love more than most.
What if we strove to become what we already imagine we are?

What if we strove to preach better, teach better, and love better?

Perhaps then we wouldn't have to say we're above average - it'd be obvious from our results!
