THE RODDAN JUBILEE LECTURES:
The Roddan Jubilee Lectures, named after the former superintendent of First United Church Andrew Roddan (1929-1945), were 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.
The 2018-2019 lectures will start in the fall, with the theme of reconciliation. They will feature speakers John Ralston Saul and Karen Joseph.
