All Souls Unitarian Church, Tulsa, OK


Jan 12, 2014

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 12, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Let’s be honest. It’s not easy being “green!” Doing what is best for the environment is often inconvenient, expensive, complicated, unclear, and hard to maintain. Most people, including the loudest proponents of “being green,” act hypocritically regarding many of their own choices. Most of us, if we let ourselves think about it honestly, feel somewhat guilty and hypocritical about how we live with regard to the amount of resources we use and destroy. Looking at my own life, I’m in no position to lecture anyone on how to live regarding being a noble steward of the earth. But I try to do the “right” things, at least when it is not too inconvenient.

What do we do if we have a sense of responsibility to the earth, and to future generations, but we have neither the will nor the knowledge to make significant change? It may be one of the primary dilemmas of our times, especially for those who have enough time and money to think about such things. Can we step out of our agendas, our denial, our fears, and our self-righteousness long enough to struggle together regarding what all of this means? I’m going to give it a try.
