“Alternative Facts in Religion” with Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The concept of “alternative facts” is rightfully being scorned and mocked in politics today. Yet religion has often been, and continues to be, a realm of alternative facts. What does it mean to have a religion or church that rejects alternative facts and that seeks the truth in love and also seeks the truth with reason, science, and an openness to many perspectives? What facts are there that we can count on as we look to build a theology for our times? Join us on Sunday for a pre-recorded sermon led by All Souls Unitarian Church’s Senior Minister, Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, to begin unpacking and exploring these important questions. This sermon was originally delivered on Sunday, April 23, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Rev . Marlin Lavanhar grew up in Highland Park, IL. He was ordained a UU minister in 1999. Since 2000 he has been the Senior Minister of All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, OK. With almost 2,000 members, it is the largest UU church in the United States. In 2010 he received the Humanitarian of the Year Award from the United Nations Office for his work to help end the persecution of gay and lesbian people in Uganda, Africa.
