The Charge to the Congregation was delivered on the occasion of the Installation of Rev. Barbara Prose as Associate Minister on Sunday, March 24, 2019, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.
All Souls Unitarian Church called its first minister, Rev. Dr. James Kennedy, after the charter for ‘All Souls Liberal Church’ was signed on March 28, 1921. It was thought at the time that the word Liberal would be more widely accepted than Unitarian.
Ninety-eight years later, the historic and largest Unitarian church, will officially install The Reverend Barbara Prose as minister of the current congregation. Everyone is invited to celebrate 98 years of liberal ministers in Tulsa, including Alfred von Stilli, Robert Sonen, John B. Wolf, and others on Heritage Sunday in one special service for all at 10:30 a.m. CST. If you can’t join us in person, please join us via live stream at allsoulschurch.org/live.
Rev. Barbara Prose was hired by All Souls Senior Minister Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar in 2011. In 2014, she became the Executive Director of Ministry. Her leadership has included the development of 24/7 pastoral care for members, SpiritSong hospice choir, numerous justice initiatives including New Sanctuary Network Tulsa, and the continued development of the organization.
All of our choirs will share their gifts of song during the service. Rev. Cathey Edwards, Senior Minister of Hope Unitarian Church, and Rabbi Marc Fitzerman, B’nai Emunah Synogogue, will join Rev. Lavanhar and Rev. Gerald Davis during the service and installation of Rev. Barbara Prose.
