All Souls Unitarian Church, Tulsa, OK


Jun 4, 2017

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 4, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Monuments and historical celebrations create a sense of public memory, and what we remember matters. The celebrations we offer and statues we erect help shape a shared narrative of our history and our public identity. These communal acts express and advocate public values, however, the meanings we make of events are not neutral. There are economic and political consequences of how we tell our story. Artists who design memorials are challenged with how to confront and memorialize the uncomfortable truths in our past. We launch our Summer Sermon Series: This American Faith with “The Gift of Doubt.” It was a favorite theme of our Minister Emeritus, Dr. John B. Wolf, during his nearly four decades as the Senior Minister of All Souls. Doubt causes us to question what we are told and is an important tool in seeking the truth. How can our efforts to honestly recall and evaluate the past provide the conditions for a brighter future?
