Social Principles of the United Methodist Church
Lamar Robertson – Pastor’s Administrative Assistant at First Church will discuss how we interact as individual Methodists with others. The topics are complex, nuanced, and potentially difficult to face on our own, but also, filled with grace and understanding. Through this dialogue we will explore how we are called as individual Methodists to relate to such things as climate change, abortion, food justice, poverty and global politics.
Lamar’s academic background in religious studies includes; Spiritual Leadership, Asian Religions in America, and Judaic Studies. He is the author of “REL 101: An Introduction to Undergraduate Religious Studies”, which is part of his efforts to increase religious literacy and interfaith understanding. Much of his speaking focuses on challenging the modern understanding of orthodoxy and religion.
