The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 6, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

We continue our Summer Series titled “This American Faith” with a new theme for the month of August: “The Gift of Imperfection”. When the founders gathered 230 years ago this month in Philadelphia to draft a Constitution for this new nation, they hoped for unity, but they came with their competing interests and concerns. The end result was a document that nobody was completely happy about, but one that everyone felt they could live with in the interest of national unity. The tensions between community and self-interest and inclusiveness and justice are pragmatic realities of any democratic organization. We have seen these tensions at All Souls in recent years regarding our decisions to move downtown and in our work to become more diverse. What has become clear is that a person’s relationship to compromise and imperfection can be a major determining factor for the quality and satisfaction of their life. I’ll kick-off this month’s theme exploring what we can learn from the creation and adoption of the American Constitution.
