Come Home - Rev. Tamara Lebak

Sermon delivered on Sunday, September 30, 2012, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Tamara Lebak, Associate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Frederick Buechner writes, “What the word ‘home’ brings to mind, before anything else, is a special place that is clearly distinguishable from all other places. It is a place where you feel you belong, and which, in some sense, belongs to you. Home is the place throughout your life that you keep going back to, and which is apt to determine the kind of place – perhaps a place inside yourself – that you spend the rest of your life searching for, even if you are not aware that you’re searching.”

Let’s explore the idea of home and its influence on us, as well as what it looks like to have a church home as theologically diverse as our own.

If Darwin Prayed - Rev. Marlin Lavanhar

Sermon delivered on Sunday, September 23, 2012, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Is Evolutionism enough of a worldview to base one’s religion, or moral system of living? We will explore how the Theory of Evolution offers a moral way of understanding the world and our place in it and how the evolutionary worldview does not discount, but uplifts the world’s great religious traditions.

Difficult Decisions (Humanist Version) - Rev. Marlin Lavanhar

Message delivered on Sunday, September 16, 2012, during The Point, the Humanist service at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the course of a life, everyone faces at least a few really hard, sometimes heart-wrenching, and often life-changing decisions. When it is a clear, good-versus-bad proposition, it is not usually too difficult. But many big decisions involve competing definitions of good and priorities that make them complex, and sometimes troubling, no matter which decision is made.

We now have three services on Sunday in which to explore this subject from three distinct perspectives. At 8:30 a.m., at The Point, we will take a Humanist approach and explore how people may make such decisions without referencing scripture, God, or religion. At 10:00 a.m., in the Traditional Service, we will look to examples that inform us from the religions and cultures of the world, which may or may not include a Biblical perspective and will certainly be informed by the Humanist perspective. And at 11:30 a.m., in our Contemporary Service, we will have the benefit of these other perspectives to introduce, but we will be sure to highlight what the Bible can teach us about making really difficult decisions.

Comfortable Inaction - Rev. Gerald L. Davis

Sermon delivered on Sunday, September 2, 2012, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald L. Davis, Adjunct Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

As we bid farewell to the sultry days of this record-breaking Oklahoma summer, we notice how we have gravitated toward states of being that do not move us to exertion. For sure, heat makes you weary. Our comfortable twenty-first century conditions make a distant memory of the kind of heat that sapped our strength and made early rising a must if there was to be any work done. We have become conditioned to the air conditioner. I’m not mad at ‘ya! Our bodies need that kind of relief. But what about our spirits?

We constantly wage conflicts, regardless of the weather, between wanting to “do something” and comfortable inaction. I want to speak to your spirits about ways and means of moving outside our comfort zones.
