'COVENANTAL DISAGREEMENT' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 27, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

My favorite scriptural covenant is recorded as something Jesus said in the Gospel of Luke 10:27, ”Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind”; and “Love your neighbor as yourself” which suggests both vertical and horizontal covenant. Our history with indigenous people on this continent is the story of repeatedly broken covenants. How does our covenant with God impact and influence our agreements with each other?

'ONE HUMAN FAMILY' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 13, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

What now? With 50% of the people celebrating and eager, and another 50% of the people grieving or protesting, how do we find our own center? Jesus called his disciples and followers to create family with people who were drastically different than themselves. We who feel his call and the legacy of that call to expand the covenant of our country and constitution to include ALL people, know we must face the future and each other with love and trust, instead of fear and suspicion. This is our practice, this is an arduous path of the heart - to love beyond belief.

We need each other to survive.

'WHO'S YOUR NEIGHBOR AND WHAT DOES LOVE REQUIRE OF US?' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 13, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

When my plane touched down in the United States on Wednesday night, it was a different country from the one I left. I was in Frankfurt, Germany for the European Unitarian Universalist conference as the keynote speaker. After a presidential election like we have had, relationships are often frayed and strained and sometimes broken. How we respond when it's over makes a huge impact. One of the strengths of our democracy has been our ability to maintain our divergent positions while also coming back together as one nation after a hard fought campaign. After this election season, trust in our system of government has been broken for many reasons for many people. In Germany, they have been dividing over the issue of taking in over one million Syrian refugees. My talk was titled, Who's Your Neighbor and What Does Love Require of Us? It was a tremendous experience and lead to fascinating conversations. This same topic can be applied to our current situation in the United States.

'THE MYSTERY OF COVENANTAL DISAGREEMENT' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 6, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Covenant is about agreement and agreement inevitably involves negotiation and even concession. You can actually agree to disagree and still be in covenant, or enjoy commitment and comradery. We don't have to go along to get along. We can mind many of the same things without necessarily having the same mind about everything. And such is the life and light of covenant community or covenant living! My favorite scriptural covenant is recorded as something Jesus said in the gospel of Luke 10:27  "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind;" and "Love your neighbor as yourself" which suggests both vertical and horizontal covenant.

'I DREAM A WORLD' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 6, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

A ticket to a baseball game costs $17 and a hot dog costs $2, but the experience of the game, is priceless.  This election season has had many costs, including a loss of faith in the political process, doubt about the strength of our union, and heightened anxiety that we will no longer be a great nation. No matter who wins or what happens when the outcome is decided, what are you willing to pay to protect our democracy?  And what will it cost to stay committed to our covenant as citizens of this country?

'IMAGINE WHAT LOVE CAN DO' - A sermon by Rev. Gerald L. Davis

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 30, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald L. Davis, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Because I have always had low vision, being able to see became part of my identity. Thick glasses suggested a bookish countenance which meant I was expected to know something. It was only in my course of development did I realize knowing something is not vision. Vision has to have imagination. Join me on Sunday when we imagine what love can do.

'DEFYING GRAVITY' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 30, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the Broadway musical Wicked, we find a new twist on the old classic, The Wizard of Oz.  It turns out the “good” witch is not so good after all and the “wicked” witch, well, she ain’t so bad.  In this delightful tale the complexities of what causes one person to be deemed “good” and another to be seen as “evil” is brought to life in an unforgettable way. This Sunday to conclude our October exploration on the theme of Good and Evil we have some extraordinary singers who will bring to us songs from the musical to help touch our hearts and stir our conscience. In my message I will be lifting up some timeless truths from the musical.

'THE RIGID DICHOTOMY OF DUAL CONSCIOUSNESS, PART II' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 23, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Adam and Eve were free to eat from any tree in the Garden … except from the tree which separated good from evil, the forbidden tree. Do we ignore or embrace that duality today? And how do we do it? What might be the consequences of doing either?
