Why We Cheat - Rev. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 27, 2013, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Since Lance Armstrong finally admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs, there has been a lot of discussion about why people cheat. Athletes cheat to win, citizens cheat on their taxes, spouses cheat on each other, students cheat on tests. What is it that causes people to cheat and how do people who cheat live with themselves? Is there redemption for cheaters and how can it be attained?

On Sunday, I will be exploring some of the dynamics of cheating and how we can avoid the pitfalls of the human condition that cause us to deceive others – and ourselves – to get ahead.

The Most Durable Power - Rev. Tamara Lebak

The homily was delivered on Sunday, January 20, 2013, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Tamara Lebak, Associate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

This Sunday, in honor of MLK weekend, we will be highlighting stories from members of our Bridging Team. The Bridging Team is a task force focused on helping All Souls live out its vision of being an interculturally competent community.

Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”

What is within your power to change around the way you interact with cultural or racial difference? How can you use your power to correct what stands against love? Join us as we celebrate and reflect on how far we have come and where we might continue to work to manifest King’s dream right here in Oklahoma.

This Monday celebrates the 27th year of Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Join us Monday at the Tulsa MLK parade as we walk to commemorate this historic day and celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of a just and unified America.

Making Time - Rev. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 13, 2013, during the contemporary service at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

It’s been said, “Time is the most valuable commodity.” Do you feel like you have time to do the things that are most important to you? Who determines how you spend your time: your children, your employers, your creditors, your parents, your teachers, your clients, your doctors?

If you were told you needed to find a half-day every week to receive a radiation treatment in order to try to save your life, you would most likely find the time. What else would you consider worth sacrificing for? Do you know what is most important to you? Do you make time for it? If not, do you know why or how to make time? If you could make “the most valuable commodity,” time, would you? If you have the time (or maybe more importantly, if you don’t), join us to explore Making Time.

Graceland - Rev. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 6, 2013, during the contemporary service at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

I’ve always been intrigued by Jared Tyler’s song titled “Questions." As we enter 2013, it may be a good time to try to answer some of the song’s questions. I hope you’ll join Jared and me as we explore in words and music both questions and grace for a New Year.

Here are some of the lyrics:

Are you looking for hello or goodbye?
Are you ready for the wind to change?
Are you trying for the same old thing?
Do you know where you’re going?
And how you’re getting there?
Are you looking for a chance and a prayer?
Can you find your deepest need?
Are you holding on to tears with a smile?
Have you ever walked a lonely mile?
Well is it what you dreamed, or somewhere in between?
Can you see the silver light and still see it in the dark?
If everything in you has tried can you find out who you are?
