Why is it that cultural images of people whose faith is simply a normal part of their lives are so rare? Garrison Keillor is one of the few whose church life is such a normal and typical part of his stories, that it doesn’t seem odd or strange. Most of us work, have a home, and go to church. Why can’t characters on TV or the big screen do the same without caricature?
Not to make Gaffigan out as a saint, but what I like about the linked article above is that it looks at how Gaffigan’s faith isn’t a separate compartment of life. Rather, faith is the way he lives life. Faith is present onstage and off. Plus, it’s just funny.
