'Are We Christian, Too?' - (Rev. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, March 23, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

When people first hear about All Souls, they can sometimes be confused and wonder, “What kind of church is it really?” Can a church actually affirm and celebrate Atheists, Agnostics, Humanist and theological Naturalists?

Rev. Tamara Lebak will answer this question in the service at 8:30 this Sunday. Can a church be Christian if it welcomes nontheists and Buddhists and Jews and people of other beliefs also?

Rev. Marlin Lavanhar will answer this second question in the services at 10:00 and 11:30. These are services to which you might want to invite a friend who may have asked you a similar question.

'Who Do You Say I Am?' - (Rev. Tamara Lebak) - Contemporary Service

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, March 16, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Tamara Lebak, Associate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the fall of this year, a member of the congregation purchased my sermon at the auction. Her desire is that I preach on Big Data. This Sunday at the 8:30 service I will dive headfirst into Big Data and its implications for understanding who we are as consumers and human beings. Data is constantly being generated from our phones, televisions, credit cards, planes, Internet searches, traffic patterns, and so much more. According to Jonathan Shaw, writer for Harvard Magazine, “The data flow is so fast that the total accumulation of the past two years a zettabyte dwarfs the prior record of human civilization.” The revolution of Big Data and why everyone is talking about it is not the amount of data, itís that we have created new ways to process, analyze, and even visualize that data to make it useful. Using Big Data effectively is what has allowed Amazon to potentially be better at predicting what you are planning to buy next than your partner. In the 10:00 and 11:30 services I will expand into the religious implications of the correlation of data to understanding ourselves and our world.

'Who's in Charge?' - (Pastor Randy Lewis)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, March 9, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Pastor Randy Lewis, Adjunct Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In today’s America, there is a great deal of conversation about the role of religion and how influential it is and should be. If we were indeed a Christian nation, then, rightly so, our laws would reflect that. However, is America not referred to as “the melting pot?” Are we not made up of many different cultures and people, with different religious and political views?

What we believe often shapes who we are, how we perceive the world around us, and how we treat people. How do we learn to love and care for others, especially when they are different or believe differently than we do? How can we apply love to those who claim supremacy because of religion? Whose beliefs are the right ones, when religion, politics, and one’s own personal preferences clash?

'Who Do They Say I Am?' - (Rev. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, March 2, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Another title could be, “If You Meet The Buddha on the Road, Kill Him!” This was a book title some years ago. The book tried to help people realize that no guru, therapist, or religious leader should become an idol, nor do they have all the answers to life’s problems. The idea is that all of us are just human beings struggling in our own ways along the paths of life. We are meant to look inward for truth and understanding that will ultimately help us take responsibility for our own growth, destiny and healing.

We can help one another and need each other, but we also must accept that we are the authority when it comes to our own values, beliefs and actions. When we take authority for our own lives, we take responsibility as the author our own story.

Who are your authorities in matters of deepest concern? How do you take responsibility for your religious life? Do you let others impose their beliefs, values and interpretations upon you and why? In Oklahoma, we deal with this almost every day as we live in a culture that is filled with people making, what they believe, are authoritative religious claims about what is right and wrong. I want to talk about where religious authority comes from.
