'End It!' - (Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 26, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

The End is Near! At least the end of our sermon series on Endings and New Beginnings is coming Oct. 26th. It has been one of the most rich series we have done in a long time. In this concluding message I will explore some of the factors that keep us from ending things that we know need to stop. It is common to maintain habits, jobs, relationships, and affiliations long past their usefulness and value. We sometimes do so at the expense of our wellbeing, at the expense of the wellbeing of the people around us and the organizations we support. Why is it so hard sometimes to end the things that hurt us?

'Breaking Away' - (Rev. Barbara Prose)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 19, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Assistant Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the Gospel of Luke, chapter 14, verses 25-27, it is written, “Now great crowds accompanied him, and he turned and said to then, ‘If anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple’.”

But, there are times in our lives when we need to break away. There are stories that have been imposed upon us by our families, schools, and faith traditions that do not reflect the truth of the Spirit within us now. A Spirit which calls us toward a deeper freedom and the possibility of a greater love.

I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t broken away from my family in fundamental ways. Let’s explore what this passage has to tell us about the times we need to break away.

'You're Not in Trouble, You're in Transition' - (Gina Gauthier Pearson)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 12, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Gina Gauthier Pearson, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Complete Sermon Title: "You're Not in Trouble, You're in Transition - Making, Managing and Mastering Change"

Transition is the process or period of changing from one state or condition to another. There is a global shift in religious and societal sensibilities in this 21st century. Resenting and resisting change results in unnecessary stress and duress. Embracing the new normal and going with the flow, can create personal and powerful evolution with inner peace and a new kind of happiness and intrigue. We must all, make, manage and master change.

'Ends that Connect' - (Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 12, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Some endings create a separation and some connect us. When a person stops thinking he is unlovable, he begins to experience love. When our self-centeredness or self-hatred die, we begin to blossom. When we stop thinking we are our job title or family role or our body or the best or worst thing we’ve ever done, we start discovering who we really are. When we enter a relationship or join an organization there are some freedoms we must give up, but in return we receive many rewards that we could never have had without making the sacrifices required. Some people never learn how entering a commitment or covenant or relationship both limits us and expands our possibilities. To fail to learn and live this core truth is to fail one of the fundamentals of life and love. When we learn to celebrate, rather than resist the endings that connect us, we come more fully alive.

'Everything Ends' - (Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar)

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 5, 2014, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In October we launch a new sermon series on the topic of ENDINGS.

Poet T.S. Eliot wrote:

“What we call a beginning is often an end and to make an end

is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”

The end of one season is the beginning of a new one. Life is filled with endings, losses, deaths and rebirths. How we deal with the end of one thing is inextricably tied to the beginning of the next. In October we will look at the relationship between endings and new beginnings.
