Rev. Owen-Towle talked about UU minister and colleague, Roger Greeley, being a pillar of Freethought and how he did performances of Clarence Darrow and his beloved Robert G. Ingersoll. Rev. Owen-Towle regards himself and others who share his vision as freethinking mystics with hands. Freethinking, because he looks to governing truths to inform and enlighten him, but not to the absolute truths of more fundamentalist religionists. He is always awake to omens of the divine and to the ineffable things beyond him, so he regards himself cloaked in mystical garb as well.
