'WHY WE LIE: False Witness' - (Rev. Tamara Lebak)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 27, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Tamara Lebak, Associate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

SONNET 138- WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

When my love swears that she is made of truth,
I do believe her, though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutored youth
Unlearned in the world’s false subtleties.

We tell a variety of lies, from little white lies to boasting and bragging, to the outright concealing of information, and we do so for a number of different reasons. Why do we lie? In observing children, Psychologist and credibility expert, Dr. Paul Eckman, has observed that lying and how we prepare a lie actually changes over our lifetime. How can we encourage truthfulness in our children and understand the ways in which we may be encouraging others to lie to us?

'Spiritual GPS' - (Rev. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 13, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

There are times in people’s lives when they feel like they are “off the map” and without a trail when it comes to their personal or spiritual path. During these times we can wish we had a spiritual GPS that could help us locate where we are and where we need to go. On Sunday I will explore some of the geography and architecture of a spiritual journey including the descents and returns and the real ways that we move towards greater wisdom, compassion and personal depth. How do we find true north when we are lost or unsure which way we need to go? How do we learn to love beyond belief? How do we know when to stay and be still and when to run away?

'Fullness of Self' - (Randy Lewis)

The reflection was delivered on Sunday, April 13, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Randy Lewis, Adjunct Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

George Washington Carver once said, “How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.” Let us reflect together and consider how far we have traveled, and, perhaps, how far it is that we still have to go. Join me this Sunday as we explore the theme of Redemption.

'Can People Change?' - (Rev. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

If I told you that, “There are a few words so powerful that all you have to do is say them, and really believe them and you can be redeemed,” don’t you think that most people would do it? What if I could show you that saying these words with conviction would * help your marriage, * further your career, * improve your relationship with your children * and cause you to become a better friend…

What do you think you’d say to them? On Sunday I am looking at some of the ways we find redemption for the things we have done and absolution from the mistakes we have made.

‘Good Without God’ - (Rev. Barbara Prose)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Assistant Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

“Are you a humanist?” If you say yes, are you a secular humanist, a spiritual humanist, a religious humanist, a religious naturalist humanist, or a Christian humanist? Perhaps you consider yourself to be a secularist, a materialist or a rationalist. Or do you shy away from theological labels in general - which seems like a reasonable choice when faced with so many, nuanced, distinctions?

Here in Tulsa, you may have been dismissed as a mere humanist. If you come to The Point regularly, you may self-identify as a generic or even a raving humanist.

Humanism has had and continues to have a deep and lasting impact on our faith tradition and the evolution of religious understanding around the world. Joss Whedon, recipient of the Humanist Chaplaincy Award at Harvard in 2010 wrote, “Faith is something we have to embrace. Faith in God means believing absolutely in something with no proof whatsoever. Faith in humanity means believing absolutely in something with a huge amount of proof to the contrary. We are the true believers.”

Whether you agree or disagree with this statement, in a faith as free as ours, we each have a responsibility to be able to articulate as best we can, what we hold as our highest values, and why. With the religious freedom we cherish comes the responsibility to study, debate – or argue, and finally decide, define and declare where we stand.

My hunch is that we are all humanists. No matter what service we attend. No matter what God we profess we do or don’t believe in.
