We kick off next month’s theme (Exemplars and Pioneers) one week early with a service on the life and thought of Albert Camus, noted French existentialist and atheist. Often characterized as dark and despairing, his life and work is in truth a call to full and passionate embrace of the world, in all its contradictions. For Camus, that embrace required clear-eyed appraisals of politics, culture and his own conscience, no matter where it led him. Courage was the foundation that helped him endure the inevitable blow-back. This morning, we will examine his life and work from that prism of courage, with an assist from Robert Lunceford’s music trio La Guinguette, playing and singing some vintage French tunes.
