"A writer's interfaith inspiration
In an interview with sci-fi novelist Mark London Williams discussing the influence of his interfaith upbringing he notes that growing up they attended a Unitarian church and his mother enrolled in Unitarian ministerial school at Starr King. (Interfaith Family.com)"
He was my first literary hero, and has always occupied a place in my pantheon of favorite authors.
Hearing him quoted at a UU service was one of the major things that drew me to Unitarian Universalism: a faith that could see Vonnegut as a prophet.
