Another great Witherington post
I love Garrison Keillor. The Prairie Home Companion is a great Saturday evening (or Sunday afternoon) treat if you listen to NPR. I don't know where Ben got this, but it is very funny.
Interesting tidbits to get out of this bit: Garrison Keillor and Jeff Foxworthy are Methodists.
Here are some other famous Methodists you may not have known about:
George Lucas (Star Wars)
Jeff Smith (The Frugal Gourmet - one of my cooking heroes - UM minister)
Stephen Crane (writer - Red Badge of Courage)
Thomas Welch (Welch's grape juice)
William Booth (founder of Salvation Army)
Hugh Hefner (Playboy)
So there is a little bit of Methodist trivia for today. Enjoy.
