THE RODDAN JUBILEE LECTURE SERIES:
The Roddan Jubilee Lecture series, named after the former superintendent of First United Church Andrew Roddan (1929-1945), was created to nuance community conversations about complex social problems.
The initial funding for these lectures is generously provided by Vancouver Burrard Presbytery of the United Church of Canada and donors including St Andrew’s-Wesley, Canadian Memorial United Churches, and the Vancouver School of Theology.
