'CONFLICT AND DISCIPLINE OF GRACEFUL LIVING' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 24, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Avoiding conflict is virtually impossible. Working and walking through it responsibly is the discipline of graceful living. Making a conscious decision to co-exist and cohabitate peacefully while recognizing, respecting, tolerating, and celebrating our honest and legitimate differences, is a social discipline. This is achieved through developing higher levels of consciousness and reverence for the elegance, eloquence and excellence of our human and divine proclivities and intrinsic virtues.

'BLACK AND BLUE - PART TWO: ACTS OF NON-VIOLENCE' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 24, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

“Whether it’s the violence and terror by those who misuse the badge or the violence and terror against those who wear the badge and are doing their sworn duty, it is wrong. Violence will only beget more violence,” said the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber. The way of non-violence is a deep and demanding spiritual commitment that we can all adopt as our own. It is active, never passive. Now is the time to read and study the words of Thoreau, Gandhi, and King as we recommit to the practice of satyagraha, or soul force. We really do need each other to survive.

'CONFLICT: THE ART OF PROGRESS' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 17, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Conflict is a form of friction. In psychology, conflict is defined as a condition in which a person experiences a clash of opposing wishes or needs. To feel incompatible or at variance; to clash.

Friction, on a personal and human level, is conflict or animosity caused by a clash of wills, temperaments, or opinions. Newton’s third law suggests that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Walking and working through this reality must be deliberate and intentional rather than combative. The key is finding the emotional lubricant that makes conflict bearable and even productive.

'BLACK AND BLUE - PART ONE: ACTS OF VIOLENCE' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 17, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

This has been one of the toughest weeks of my life. The tragic killing of two men at the hands of police and then the tragic killing of five police officers, all in one week, in one nation, is too much. “The sounds of bullets, the pictures of death and violence, we’re seeing it too much. Rather than love and humanity, we’re seeing death and inhumanity. This is violence and death gone wild,” says the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber. I hope to see you in church this Sunday, so together we can explore the human roots of conflict and violence, as we reclaim our own humanity, share some tips on how to deal with conflict in our daily lives, and ready ourselves for the long walk toward a more just and peaceful world.

'LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD' - A sermon by Rev. Gerald Davis

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 10, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald Davis, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Author and professor Cornell West often reminds us that justice is just love in public. I believe love in public, unfortunately, requires struggle – from Seneca Falls to Selma and Stonewall. To reference President Obama, we have witnessed how struggle can lead to justice. Conflict, therefore, is not always a bad thing. Come ride with me on this freedom train onto the battlefield.

'AMERICAN JIHAD' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 3, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Jihad has become a scary word in the west among non-Muslims. It’s been used to refer to holy wars and insurgencies. Yet, the word ‘Jihad’ is one of the sacred pillars of ‪#‎Islam‬. We are told Islam is a religion of peace. It’s probably time more of us understand what this word and concept truly mean.

'WHAT DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE?' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Victor M. Parachin

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 26, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Victor M. Parachin, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

What the world needs now is love, sweet love,

It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of

– Burt Bacharach

That song was first recorded in 1965 and gained popularity all over the world. Love is important. We think about it, talk about it, sing about it. But, what does “love” look like? What is the “love” that the world needs now?

'TWO AMERICAS' - A message by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The message was delivered on Sunday, June 19, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

MESSAGE DESCRIPTION

The mass shooting in Orlando on Sunday has given way to two visions of America. Many of us have heard what the pundits and politicians are saying.  We are seeing how the ties that bind a nation of people from all nations can be shredded. The question before people of goodwill is "What does love call us to do?" This question cannot be divorced from "What does common sense call us to do?" or "How do we deal with real threats to our safety and security?" Like a parent's love, the love that binds us, is also a love that fiercely protects us. In this culture of soundbites and slogans, it is time for thoughtful people to look with a deeper lens at the problems before us and to discern the love and loyalties that are most likely to save us.  I look forward to contributing to the dialogue and to "putting my thumb on the scale" on behalf of the only America that makes any moral, practical and meaningful sense to me.

'YOU, ME, AND MUHAMMAD ALI' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 12, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

New York Times journalist, Wesley Morris called him, “the most important political-cultural figure to survive the deadly tumult of the 1960s and flourish in the 1970s.” Muhammed Ali’s beliefs transfixed and polarized our country thirty years before the Black Lives Matter movement. Ali is the personification of courage. Words like radical, truth, fame and, risk describe the complicated and contradictory man who turned boxing into a referendum on the state of the country. Born Cassius Clay during the Jim Crow era in Louisville, Kentucky, he learned to box after his red Schwinn bicycle was stolen at the age of twelve. At 22, Ali won his first heavyweight title. Join us this Sunday as we explore what his life has to tell and teach us about courage today.
