Our Keynote Speaker:
Protégé of Oral Roberts from 1977, Carlton Pearson grew
to be a Spiritual Activist of the "Gospel of Inclusion".
He is now Adjunct Minister at All Souls Church in Tulsa.
"Carlton Pearson's church, Higher Dimensions, was once one of the
biggest in the city (Tulsa), drawing crowds of 5,000 people every
Sunday. But several years ago, scandal engulfed the reverend.
He didn't have an affair. He didn't embezzle lots of money.
His sin was something that to a lot of people is far worse:
He stopped believing in Hell."
Carlton places high priority on personal integrity, meaning the integration of all aspects of human beings being human, and how that plays out through what he calls "Self Actualization" and that all in the global human family should acknowledge its common relevance and its collective
relativity. He believes the opposite of that is dis-integration (disintegration) of the human spirit, race and civil society.
You can read his biography in an article in UU World: uuworld.org/articles/the-gospel-inclusion
Bishop Pearson's keynote address will be open to the public.
There is no admission charge to attend only the keynote address,
