'Our Lives Are the Lesson' - A sermon by Tanner Phillips & Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 31, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Tanner Phillips, Youth Coordinator, and Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

At high school and college graduations around the country, commencement speakers will try to impart some wisdom to inspire and guide the graduates as they transition into the next phase of their lives. Mostly, they will share the lessons their own lives have taught them, because we learn by living and develop wisdom by examining our own lives. What wisdom have you gleaned from your own life? What would you tell a graduate today? Tanner Phillips and I will explore life itself as the greatest teacher of all. What has your life taught you and how will you share that hard won wisdom with others?

'Transcending Together' - A sermon by David Ruffin

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 24, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by David Ruffin, Resident Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

It’s Pentecost Sunday! The day of burning bushes! The day of the Holy Spirit’s anointing! The day of speaking with flaming tongues! The birthday of the church! A day of transcendence!

Yet the real power of Pentecost was in the miracle that this transcendent experience was shared. The greatest gift of the Spirit was not some new great secret Divine revelation, but the revelation of connection with one another. The ability to speak and to be heard at the deepest level of the heart amongst those who did not even share a language.

What would change if you were given the gift to share the deepest truth of your heart with those around you and truly be heard? What might shift in your heart if you were given the gift of hearing the deepest truth of your neighbors’ hearts? These questions aren’t hypothetical. The gift is still ours to receive.

'The Sky's Not the Limit' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 24, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the movie Her, a man falls in love with his operating system. In the movie Ex Machina, a man is murdered by the robot or Artificial Intelligence he created. We ourselves, seem programmed to push technology and consciousness to the limit, or even beyond the limit. As the reality of robots and virtual realities permeate our daily lives, (think of a car that talks to you, betting on virtual sports teams, remote home medical monitors) we’ll take some time to examine our need for human and non-human contact and the deeper desires expressed in the diverse ways we each choose to communicate, connect, sustain and transcend contact.

'Transcending Loss' - A message by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The message was delivered on Sunday, May 17, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

MESSAGE DESCRIPTION

On May 3rd, I mentioned the laughter, play and joyfulness in my home these days. I contrasted that with the weeks and months following my daughter’s death in 2006. There was a time when I wondered if we would ever feel joy again. Wondered if the cold, stale air of grief would ever be blown away by the fresh winds of a renewal and happiness. As we go deeper into our theme of transcendence this month, I want to look at the human capacity to transcend loss, tragedy and grief. How do we do it? Is it really possible? What are the trail markers that can help us find our way back home to a life of abundant and radiant joy? We dishonor those we love and lose if we cannot find a way forward to life’s greatest fulfillment.

Mother's Day Homily by Rev. Barbara Prose

The homily was delivered on Sunday, May 10, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

HOMILY DESCRIPTION

To build community, a few times a year we bring all three Sunday services together for a celebration. Mother’s Day is one of those Sundays. It is also our annual flower communion service. You are asked to bring a flower to church to place in a central bouquet and you will be invited to take someone else’s flower home with you. It is a beloved tradition at All Souls as well as in our sister churches around the world. We will hear music from all three of our children’s choirs as well as a special barbershop quartet and music from New Dimensions Chorale. My Mother’s Day message will not be long, but I hope it will leave a lasting impression. Bring your mother to church and stay for our Mother’s Day Brunch, which will be delicious and supports our Youth Group. It should be another Sunday to remember.

'Go Beyond Belief' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 3, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

For many people religion is about belief. At All Souls we care more about what someone does than what that person believes. What good is it if a person believes, or says he believes, something, but acts in ways that are unkind, miserly, or self-aggrandizing? Supposedly, most people today ascribe to the beliefs of one of the major religions, and yet look at the state of the world. The vast majority of Americans say they believe in God and Christianity, but we still see so much greed, violence, corruption, selfishness, and materialism. As far as I’m concerned, you can believe what you want, I want to know whether when I’m in trouble or in need, if you will help me?
