Dr. Richard A. Jensen (who retired as Professor of Homiletics at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago and wrote Thinking in Story: Preaching in a Post-Literate Age) was the person who introduced me to the “Lake Wobegon” monologues and master American story-teller (and writer) Garrison Keillor during his visit to Malaysia a couple of years ago.

While I’ve been pretty focused in appreciating “Chinese-ness” the past week, I’m listening one of Keillor’s show right now appreciating the best of humor, music, and storytelling beyond my heritage as well. We are not alone … and somehow the strange combination for humor, music and stories manages to connect us in our common humanity.
