The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 23, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

An orthodox understanding of redemption is the act of buying one's freedom or having it paid for by someone else. It is mostly about compensation, which is to make up for something unwelcome or unpleasant by exerting an opposite effect. It usually involves some sense of guilt. Alan Cohn wrote, "A good definition of guilt is, "punishing yourself before God doesn't."' Anthony De Mello said, "When you are guilty, it is not your sins you hate but yourself." The only real redemption is the one that suggests you don't need it. Redemption transcends the illusion of lack, alienation, and isolation and recognizes that everything you need is contained in both who and what you are - that you exist and remain divine.
