'THINK ON THESE THINGS' - A sermon by Rev. Gerald Davis

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 30, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald Davis, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Paul writes in chapter four, verse eight: “Finally beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

We spend a lot of time thinking on things that are not included in Paul’s list. It is not for lack of trying, I know. We want to be beloved as Paul calls the Philippians. But we get caught up in that dark hole called knowing. Sometimes to be known means to be seen. But it does not mean to be right. The zero sum game of win/lose equals a constant struggle to be right. Let’s find our way into a discussion that has us “thinking on these things.”

'THE SCIENCE OF FAITH AND FICTION' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 16, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

There are two ways to view the world: one is to view it as fixed and established or static. The other is to view it as unfinished, (undefined), creatively ongoing, both ordained and organic. It’s almost as if God is looking to partner with you personally and all of us collectively in this ongoing evolution of all that is and is becoming. Are you willing to participate in this powerful, personal and evolving intention?

'BEGINNING WITH YOU' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 16, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

How free do you feel to be you? Are you an “other-directed” person who is influenced in your decisions and actions primarily by other people? Or are you a “self-directed person who is willing to disappoint others and go against the grain in order to be true to yourself? What are the costs of either way of being and what are the benefits? Sometimes we act in ways that we think others expect of us, and in doing so we can miss each other completely.

'Oasis in the Arkansas' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 9, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In his poem Like The Water, Wendell Berry writes:

Like the water
of a deep stream,
love is always too much.

We did not make it.
Though we drink till we burst,
we cannot have it all,
or want it all.

In its abundance
it survives our thirst.
...we keep returning to its rich waters
thirsty.

We enter,
willing to die,
into the commonwealth of its joy.

This Sunday we are holding one combined Sunday service at 10:30 a.m. instead of our usual three services. Occasionally, we do this to bring our community together across our differences to feel our deep and authentic unity in a Love Beyond Belief. Water and thirst unite us no matter who we are or what we believe. Water will be the theme of the day.

We will also have lots of fun games and activities involving water for children and people of all ages throughout the morning.

'LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS, LOVING OURSELVES' - A sermon by Rabbi Micah Citrin, Guest Minister

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, August 2, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rabbi Micah Citrin, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Love is a universal principle understood in different ways by distinct cultures and religions. In Judaism, love is a core value for how we relate to God and other people. Jewish tradition associates love with distinct actions that stem from one’s sense of self and the dignity of the other. A deeper understanding of love from this perspective can help us to bring Shalom, peace, and balance to our world.
