The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 28, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

To seek is to ready one’s self for discovery as well as recovery of anything that seems missing, broken or lost. Spiritual seeking means to transcend the illusion of isolation, alienation and lack and to seize the present or what is presented; with power, dignity and a sense of ultimate resolution.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 28, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald Davis, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

From the Minister:

The Traditional Service at 10:00 a.m. will commence “Sources of Our Faith” preaching series. I intend to introduce it by looking at current events through my theological lens.

Our sources of faith are intended to bring clarity. After introducing the Six Sources of Faith, I will focus on the first source, direct experience of the transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, that moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life. I think there’s a sermon inside all of that.

My hope for those who attend is that you leave with a better idea of what it means to be a UU person of faith.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

For Father’s Day we will have special blues musicians along with Rick Fortner and David Smith to enliven our services. I will draw inspiration from blues music about how to live our lives, transform our troubles, and face life’s joy and love with toe tapping flair and flavor. I will highlight W.C. Handy, known as “The Father of the Blues.” We hope it will be a Sunday that will have you whistling on your way home, remembering your own dad, and those who have fathered you through good times and bad.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 14, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister, with Steven Leigh Williams, Candidate for Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Some of the biggest news of the season has been Bruce Jenner’s transition to Caitlyn Jenner. The media has been having a frenzy covering this high profile transition. I want to look at it through the lens of Love Beyond Belief and what it means to love someone through such a life-changing period. There is a lot more than the media is talking about that we can learn from this situation that applies to the issue of gender and transgender people and other transitions in our lives. Joining me in the pulpit will be Steven Leigh Williams who was born, dedicated and raised at All Souls in Tulsa and is a candidate for the Unitarian Universalist ministry and will speak from his own experience of gender transition. Steven just completed a year as the student minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Bartlesville, OK.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Last month in the Traditional Service and the Point I delivered a message about “Transcending Loss.” In it I talked about what losing my daughter has taught me about America’s race problems and what it showed me about overcoming grief and trauma. This week I will take the opportunity to deliver the same message for the Contemporary Service with a few changes. We live in a culture of denial in many ways. However, the only way out of grief is through it. That is why some of the recurring problems we face as a nation are directly related to our inability or unwillingness to face the truth and the trauma of America’s history of racial violence. I believe the situations in Ferguson, Baltimore, Tulsa, and elsewhere are a manifestation of our nation’s need to deal with our collective memory in ways that allow us to move forward in positive and unified ways.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 7, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

On June 6, 1944, President Eisenhower took a risk. He made the decision to move forward with the Allied forces landings on the beaches of Normandy, even though the weather conditions were horrible. On that day, German forces suffered 100 casualties, while Allied forces suffered 10,000. Despite the many deaths and the many battles to come, D-Day led to the liberation of Europe from Nazi control.

As summer begins and our routines are interrupted, we have an opportunity to liberate ourselves. What are we willing to risk in order to break free from familiar patterns of behavior and thought, from the wrong job, or a bad marriage? Is there something new, waiting for you, this summer?

If we try something too risky, we will hurt ourselves or someone else. If we don’t dare risk at all, we won’t learn or grow. What D-Day risk are you ready to take? What D-Day sacrifice is yours to make?

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 31, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Tanner Phillips, Youth Coordinator, and Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

At high school and college graduations around the country, commencement speakers will try to impart some wisdom to inspire and guide the graduates as they transition into the next phase of their lives. Mostly, they will share the lessons their own lives have taught them, because we learn by living and develop wisdom by examining our own lives. What wisdom have you gleaned from your own life? What would you tell a graduate today? Tanner Phillips and I will explore life itself as the greatest teacher of all. What has your life taught you and how will you share that hard won wisdom with others?

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 24, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by David Ruffin, Resident Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

It’s Pentecost Sunday! The day of burning bushes! The day of the Holy Spirit’s anointing! The day of speaking with flaming tongues! The birthday of the church! A day of transcendence!

Yet the real power of Pentecost was in the miracle that this transcendent experience was shared. The greatest gift of the Spirit was not some new great secret Divine revelation, but the revelation of connection with one another. The ability to speak and to be heard at the deepest level of the heart amongst those who did not even share a language.

What would change if you were given the gift to share the deepest truth of your heart with those around you and truly be heard? What might shift in your heart if you were given the gift of hearing the deepest truth of your neighbors’ hearts? These questions aren’t hypothetical. The gift is still ours to receive.

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.
