The Faith and Works Lecture with Ed Carter will take place on March 4 in the Madsen Recital Hall and will be streamed online
Aside from being a professor, Ed Carter has served in many roles. He was a mentor on student projects traveling to Latin America and Europe. He has served as a lawyer representing journalists in federal courts. He is a graduate from BYU, Northwestern University, the University of Edinburgh and Oxford University.
Throughout his varying roles and disciplines, Carter has wrestled with questions surrounding justice. “While I wait for the perfect justice and mercy of Jesus Christ to be fully applied, how should I react to injustices in the imperfect world around me?” Carter asked. Carter’s lecture “Error without Malice: Seeking Justice Through Journalism and International Human Rights Law” will address this timely question. For his lecture, Carter will present four solutions to reacting to the injustices of our world. First, he will discuss judging righteously. Second, he will explain the value in truth-telling. Third, he will present on accountability, and fourth, he will address institutional reforms. During his lecture, Carter will expound on these four principles using personal experiences and scriptures. “A big part of our effort to merit the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ for justification and sanctification is to listen to the Holy Ghost guiding us to do justly, love mercy, judge righteously and be humble in doing so,” said Carter.
