The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 24, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the movie Her, a man falls in love with his operating system. In the movie Ex Machina, a man is murdered by the robot or Artificial Intelligence he created. We ourselves, seem programmed to push technology and consciousness to the limit, or even beyond the limit. As the reality of robots and virtual realities permeate our daily lives, (think of a car that talks to you, betting on virtual sports teams, remote home medical monitors) we’ll take some time to examine our need for human and non-human contact and the deeper desires expressed in the diverse ways we each choose to communicate, connect, sustain and transcend contact.

The message was delivered on Sunday, May 17, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

MESSAGE DESCRIPTION

On May 3rd, I mentioned the laughter, play and joyfulness in my home these days. I contrasted that with the weeks and months following my daughter’s death in 2006. There was a time when I wondered if we would ever feel joy again. Wondered if the cold, stale air of grief would ever be blown away by the fresh winds of a renewal and happiness. As we go deeper into our theme of transcendence this month, I want to look at the human capacity to transcend loss, tragedy and grief. How do we do it? Is it really possible? What are the trail markers that can help us find our way back home to a life of abundant and radiant joy? We dishonor those we love and lose if we cannot find a way forward to life’s greatest fulfillment.

The homily was delivered on Sunday, May 10, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

HOMILY DESCRIPTION

To build community, a few times a year we bring all three Sunday services together for a celebration. Mother’s Day is one of those Sundays. It is also our annual flower communion service. You are asked to bring a flower to church to place in a central bouquet and you will be invited to take someone else’s flower home with you. It is a beloved tradition at All Souls as well as in our sister churches around the world. We will hear music from all three of our children’s choirs as well as a special barbershop quartet and music from New Dimensions Chorale. My Mother’s Day message will not be long, but I hope it will leave a lasting impression. Bring your mother to church and stay for our Mother’s Day Brunch, which will be delicious and supports our Youth Group. It should be another Sunday to remember.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 3, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

For many people religion is about belief. At All Souls we care more about what someone does than what that person believes. What good is it if a person believes, or says he believes, something, but acts in ways that are unkind, miserly, or self-aggrandizing? Supposedly, most people today ascribe to the beliefs of one of the major religions, and yet look at the state of the world. The vast majority of Americans say they believe in God and Christianity, but we still see so much greed, violence, corruption, selfishness, and materialism. As far as I’m concerned, you can believe what you want, I want to know whether when I’m in trouble or in need, if you will help me?

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Transformation, from its Greek origin means, transfiguration. It is actually changing the way you figure things out or how you figure into things. It is paying attention to the way you feel, and then choosing thoughts about you, that feel the very best. This is the way you manage your own vibration, which means you are controlling your own point and power of attraction. By doing so, you are creating your own reality and no longer a victim of someone else's.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 12, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

What did John mean when he said the truth will set us free? Did he mean some absolute, religious truth? Some scientific, unifying theory of everything? Or did he mean, that when we claim our own story and make meaning from telling the truth of our own lives, then we are not only emulating Jesus but setting each other free?

Long before I dared to speak of the truth of my own life, my soul resonated with the words of John in chapter 8, verse 2-8. "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." Last month I told a true story about my own life and was amazed by what happened afterwards.

If you're struggling to tell the truth, maybe even to yourself, join me this Sunday. What if God wants us to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? And then we discover that we are still loved?
