'Desire As a Moral Compass' - (Rev. Tet Gallardo)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 20, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Tet Gallardo, Minister of the UU Bicutan Metro Manila, Philippines.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the 1960s, in the Philippines, the Rev. Toribio Quimada discovered our newly merged Unitarian Universalist faith. He, who had helped farmers gain land titles, whose house was burned, whose family barely escaped, who was killed by unknown assassins, was a true 20th century religious martyr. And he was deeply moved and inspired by our faith’s commitment and call to justice. His daughter is the anchor for 27 congregations across the Philippines today.

Only 4 years ago, a dissident, Carlos Celdran, a UU supporter, was charged with an archaic Spanish era law about “offending religious feelings.” His crime? He protested against the Catholic lobby prohibiting women from receiving information about their reproductive health. His case is currently in the Philippine Supreme Court.

Our faith is alive in the Philippines, a country of diverse people, often divided, but always strong in their desire for freedom. Come and hear about these very relevant heroes of our shared tradition.

'Bring Your Own God: The Spirituality of Woody Guthrie' - (Rev. Stephen Edington)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 13, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Stephen Edington, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

From his early years in Okema, OK, and Pampa, TX, to his life in New York and service in the Merchant Marine, to his cross-country wanderings, Woody Guthrie cultivated a universal type of religious consciousness that shows through in his work in many ways.

The book and sermon also deal with Woody’s tragic struggle with Huntington’s Disease and the spiritual resources he drew upon at that point in his life.

'A Climate for Change' - (Rev. Barbara Prose)

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

SERMON DESCRIPTION

When a park ranger left Jane Goodall in the bush of Tanzania to find and study chimpanzees, he, like many others, thought she would last only a few weeks. British authorities were horrified, and the public considered the project to be dangerous if not amoral. When the Texas Tech climatologist, Katharine Hayhoe, talks today about how her study of climate science doesn’t threaten, but instead strengthens her conservative Christian faith, many consider her work to be dangerous if not amoral. These two faithful scientists and scientific people of faith are my guides as I seek new ways to respond to the public panic and expanding debate about religious responses to global climate change. Join me this Sunday to explore the lives and work of these two heretical woman, who both bring science and religion together in their lives and in their work. Don’t forget to think about who your own environmental hero or heroine is, and why.
