Today I posted my regular post at the Religion in American History blog.
This month’s post is “Religion in (and beyond) Lake Wobegon.”
The comments originated for a panel at the American Society of Church History’s meeting last month. The panel, I have to repeat was outstanding, the very best of what panels should be and do.
My job was simply to set the table for the scholars who brought some great ideas into play.
To start the conversation, though, I reflected on the religious diversity of Anoka, Minnesota. Anoka might not quite be Lake Wobegon, but it is close.
The other highlight: getting to mention both Pella, Iowa, and Sully, Iowa in the post. Thanks to David Zwart for making that possible!
