'Demands, Not a Dream' - (Rev. Gerald Davis)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 25, 2013, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald Davis, Adjunct Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

August 28 will mark the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Like most watershed moments in U.S. history, there is a back story. As we do, in our church culture, we "seek the truth in love."

Join me as we allow the scales to fall away in order to see with transformed eyes.

Social NOTworking - (Rev. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 18, 2013, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Today we have powerful tools for social networking, but in many ways they are not working. We are social creatures and we need one another, yet, as society and technology change, we do not always know if our former ways of doing things still apply. It can be hard to know anymore what the rules are for parents, children, relationships, dating, and much more. Let’s examine how to create social networks that work for us and not against us.

Bucket Lists - (Rev. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 11, 2013, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

This summer I was invited to join two different people in checking something off of their “Bucket Lists.” One involved fly-fishing in Colorado, and the other was to attend a heavy metal concert – Ozzy Osbourne with Black Sabbath. Some people might find it surprising, but I not only had a blast, I found intrinsic value in both. These experiences also caused me to think about what items might be on my own list. What essential things do I hope to accomplish before I die?

As I look to the Bible, the Buddha, and other sources of inspiration and wisdom, I realize that having some things on a Bucket List can be very important.

What’s on your Bucket List?

Grin and Swear It - (Rev. Tamara Lebak) | Contemporary Service

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 4, 2013, during the contemporary service, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Tamara Lebak, Associate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

According to New York Times columnist Natalie Angier, “Cursing… is a human universal. Every language, dialect, or patois ever studied, living or dead, spoken by millions or by a small tribe, turns out to have its share of forbidden speech.”

Why do we swear? Somehow this temptation of forbidden fruit is serving human beings across cultures. One recent study claims that swearing produces the positive side effect of improving our ability to withstand pain. Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage from MythBusters employed a technique commonly used by researchers called the “cold pressor test” to assess this claim. Participants anchor their arms in ice water until they can no longer tolerate the freezing pain, while reading off a list of non-curse words. Then, they repeated the process while swearing up a storm. Spewing expletives evidently increases suffering stamina by a measurable average of 30 percent.

And yet, persistent complaining can also keep us stuck, limiting our perceived choices, and keeping the very thing we would like to change the same. Join me this week as I explore the power of words to change our present and our future.
