Professor Lane with the Reverend Doctor Lex Crane
Long ago and in a romantic faraway place my life was changed forever. Outside a Lutheran Church I met the woman who, some 61 years later, is still helping me to tell our story as a family.
Later as a student I worked with Lex Crane at the Unitarian Church in Santa Barbara where we would argue about philosophy, literature, and religion. (He was the minister and I the janitor.)
A second story was found in the works of Albert Camus – specifically the first two books he wrote:
The Myth of Sisyphus and The Stranger.
The ideas that had such an effect on me? The Absurd. And the absurd hero.
(The above is from a sermon I presented to the Unitarians here in Nanaimo some time ago. Interested?)
