"The gospel message this morning at the Lake Wobegon Lutheran Church, in case you missed the service, actually the epistle, was the verse from the Colossians in which it says to put on the clothes of compassion and kindness and to forgive each other as God has forgiven us." A few thoughts on making the transition to a new year, in a brief monologue from December 2006.
"It's been much too warm out there. It's been raining. It looks dreary -- it doesn't look like the festival of lights whatsoever." A series of misunderstandings draws a crowd to Our Lady of Perpetual Responsibility, the Tolleruds reluctantly accept a gift from a NYC relative, Lake Wobegon Lutheran Church celebrates St. Lucia Day, and the high school choir goes caroling, in a monologue from December 2011.
"It's been warm. It's been in the 40s now, so we're having to face up to the prospect of a brown Christmas but we just have to deal with it, that's all." The Tolleruds retrieve and care for their escaped bull, Pastor Liz attempts to increase membership in the men's and women's bible study groups, and Darlene flirts with Nelson Tollefson, a monologue from December 2015.
"You've come to that long, cold, dark time of the year. Not much can be said about that, except that if you have not spent December in the north of Norway, then you don't know what 'cold and dark' is." Pastor Inqvist considers writing a book about Lake Wobegon, Dorothy second-guesses a sentence in her Christmas letter, and Betty Ingebretsen accompanies the 4th and 5th grade carolers at the Good Shepherd Home, in a monologue from December 2014.
