Committing Faith in Public with Cartoonist Marlin Lavanhar
Many listeners and readers will know the Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar as the senior pastor of All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Marlin is well-known in Tulsa and, in UU circles far beyond Tulsa, for his preaching, leadership, and for his community work in matters of race and of race and policing.
But Marlin is also an amateur cartoonist. His topics range from the religion to the political and social—just the kind of material we love to feature on “Committing Faith in Public.” Gary Peluso-Verdend, executive director of the Center for Religion in Public Life at Phillips Theological Seminary, interviewed Tulsa on April 9, 2021. An album of Marlin’s work is available on Instagram.
