Huston Smith

Dr. Huston Smith was affiliated with University United Methodist Church in St. Louis during his time at Washington University in St. Louis. His inclusive theology and commitment to civil rights have left a lasting mark on this congregation, which continues with social justice and interfaith partnerships as core values. Thank you, Dr. Smith, for being part of our cloud of witnesses!
