'Keeping the Good in Goodbye' - (Randy Lewis)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 31, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Randy Lewis, Community Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Letting go can be very difficult at times, and goodbyes can be rather painful, especially when hearts are broken. Although letting go is a necessary part of life, when done well, it can bring the needed affirmation and completion. This Sunday we will examine ways of keeping the good in goodbyes.

'The Three Agreements' - (Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 24, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

As I reread the book by Don Miguel Ruiz, “The Four Agreements: the Practical Guide to Personal Freedom,” I was reminded that here at All Souls we have three agreements. What does it mean to “dwell together in peace, to seek the truth in love and to help one another?” That is the covenant that we say each week. At All Souls we have agreed to be connected by a promise we make to each other rather than by agreeing to a common creed or doctrine. In doing so we have created a “practical religion guided by freedom.” Join me as I explore our “Three Agreements.”

'Teachers Everywhere' - (Rev. Barbara Prose)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 17, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Assistant Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Recently, I asked a friend if she would teach me how to do flip turns in the pool. She gave me some great tips on how to create momentum with my head and my feet, and how to position and use my arms to keep the momentum going. Yet despite her kindness, skill, and patience, I couldn’t seem to stay straight or flip fast.

Some say, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Others say, “It’s never too late to learn.” Gregory of Nyssa, the 4th century Christian mystic said the perfection of the spiritual journey is precisely that it is never finished. I say we belong to religious communities in part because it is where we can continue to teach and learn and grow, no matter what, until the very end.

As our community’s children return to school, and we anticipate the beginning of the church year together, I look forward to exploring the sacred nature of the teacher-student relationship and how our congregations can be classrooms for the soul.

'Facing Change?' - Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar (Contemporary Service)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 10, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

America is facing change, you are facing change, and religions are facing change. It’s a truism that “the only thing that’s constant is change.” Yet, it is frequently stated “People hate change!” Well that’s a cruel joke, to be alive in a world of unceasing change and have a disposition that desires stability. How do we keep faith in life, one another and ourselves during times of transition? What can we count on when everything around us seems to be moving? The answers include essential keys to living a positive, effective and successful life. In our ever-changing world it’s important to know in what we can place our deepest trust.

'The Courage to Be' - (Rev. Tamara Lebak)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 3, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Tamara Lebak, Associate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

The crucifixion story leaves us with one of the most powerful tools of courage that I can imagine. In the midst of betrayal, in the darkness, in the middle of the day, confronted with doubt and meaninglessness, Jesus has the courage to cry out what was on his heart “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” Jesus addresses the very God he has issue with, an argument for a connection even in what appears to be separation. There is a vulnerability that coexists with any true act of courage. Before we can do so with clarity we must also have the courage to look into ourselves. We would all like to be brave in the face of difficulty, in the face of our greatest fears. Join me as I explore what it means to have the courage to be.
