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?

The message was delivered on Sunday, March 22, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by David Ruffin, Resident Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Ever feel like you’re spinning on a broken record? Overcoming great challenges, working through pain and loss, only to find yourself tripped back up by brokenness all over again? ...It gets pretty tiring, to say the least. At some point most of us have probably felt like finding a way off the turn table or calling upon some envisioned master disc player to change the music!! Hello?! MC?? This disc is scratched!! ...But new vinyl doesn’t seem to be part of the record contract. Can we ever break through the brokenness to the happiness, wholeness and harmony we long for, when the record itself is so clearly broken? At Sunday’s Point we’ll reconnect with our breakthrough power for navigating scratchy vinyl, time and again, and somehow making ever more beautiful music.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

We call it, “the break of dawn” or “the break of a new day “ There is an interesting connection between breaking and newness. We cut the ribbon to dedicate a new building. We smash champagne over the bow of a new boat. Jews break a glass during the wedding ceremony and it is a tradition in the US to cut a cake as part of a marriage celebration. What is the point of this universal connection between breaking and new life?

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, March 15, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Have you ever felt fractured or damaged and no longer in one piece or in working order?

If you want to effect substantial change in your life experience, you must think thoughts that feel different as you think them. You are not what you believe, you are what you think about what you believe.

“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;” (The Apostle Paul)

Your attitude determines your altitude.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, March 15, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Our families are changing. More unmarried couples are raising children, more gay and lesbian couples are raising children, more single women are having children, more people are living together without getting married, more mothers of young children are working outside the home, more people of different races are marrying each other, and more women are choosing not to ever have children at all. The facts are undebatable and undebated. The meaning of these family facts divides our country into red and blue states.  Join me this Sunday, for another look at Family Values, a reflection shared earlier at The Point, so our congregation can make meaning of these changes in our country and in our own families. Because I imagine your family is changing too!

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, March 1, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

“When you are broken open you get to discover for the first time what is inside you.”

—Bryant McGill

In March we launch a new theme: “Brokenness”. Life is beautiful, but it is also full of broken hearts, broken promises, broken vows, broken bones, broken families, broken relationships, and brokenness of all kinds. Much of life’s meaning and possibilities are determined by how we face the broken places in our bodies, hearts and world. Beautiful mosaics are made from broken things. Bones are stronger in the places where they have broken and healed. Exquisite gems are found among broken rocks. During the month, we will look at how we can find the gems, strength, beauty, and possibilities in the broken places in our lives and in our world.
