Living Our Faith in a Complicated World: An Overview of the UMC Social Principles

Wednesdays, January 25 – February 15, 6:00 – 7:30 pm


The United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice. We believe God’s love is actively engaged with the world, and that taking an active stand for justice in society is part of God’s call on our lives. The Social Principles are a set of statements that speak to contemporary issues from a solid biblical and theological foundation. The Social Principles are adopted and adapted every four years by the Church’s General Conference not as church law, but as a call to faithful engagement with the world God loves through the lenses of scripture, tradition, reason, and experience. Take a closer look at the Social Principles in four discussion sessions led by Rev. Julie Liske.


Rev. Julie Liske is an ordained United Methodist deacon with over 25 years of dynamic leadership in congregations, chaplaincies, and social justice ministries. Her appointments include pastoral leadership at Portage Chapel Hill UMC, Wayland UMC, Grand Rapids Trinity UMC, Grand Rapids First UMC, and Kalamazoo First UMC. Julie also served as Chaplain at Clark Retirement Community and Spectrum Health Blodgett Hospital, as Executive Director of Grand Rapids United Methodist Metro Ministry, and as Chapter Director of Circles Grand Rapids. 


Julie is committed to building faith-filled relationships of mutual learning, understanding and respect across boundaries most often not crossed. Her passion is digging deeply to discover and appreciate all the ways God is working for good in the world, in others, and in her own spirit.
