'WHY YOU MATTER' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 25, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

I rarely speak at all three services on the same Sunday anymore. However, this week, as I explore "Why You Matter" I will be speaking in each service. In my Wednesday night class with Bishop Carlton Pearson (I am in week two of three and all are invited to join one or all of these classes) we are exploring how what is happening currently at All Souls fits into the long religious narrative of American life. Something truly original is going on and it has historic roots and interesting possibilities. Pentecostalism and Unitarianism have historically staked out ground at the far ends of the religious spectrum. Today, at All Souls, there is a fascinating coming together of people, philosophies, and practices that are leading people from both ends of the rationalism versus emotionalism continuum toward a new integration of minds and hearts. The mind-body dualism that has been such a dominant force in Western culture is being challenged and opened up in ways that invite us all to become more whole and integrated people. In this blessed process, you matter a lot!

'CENTERING AND SPIRITUAL PRACTICES' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 18, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Some speculate that we are not just human beings seeking spiritual experiences, we are spirit having earthly encounters. Within the mind-spirit paradigm there are varying levels of awareness. The deepest level of human spirituality is the soul which houses our inner syllabus and classes for this lifetime. The second level is emotions - how we experience things and archive the souls journey. Reconnecting with this ethereal reality is how we ground ourselves in consciousness. Sacred scriptures call this working and walking out our own salvation with reverence and passion.

'SHAPING WHAT SHAPES US' - A sermon by David Ruffin

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 18, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by David Ruffin, Resident Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

There is deep spiritual truth to be found in facing and "surrendering" to the limits of our own power. Our lives are shaped by so much that is out of our control. Yet even knowing in our hearts the poor odds of playing the game: "our will versus the world," we'll often still bet our lives on this approach. Our power to shape the world is also profound, though. Humans have completely transformed this planet, for better and for worse. Seeing this, isn't it natural and good for us to want to use our best-intentioned agency to its fullest?! We'll step into this gap between acceptance and striving, and explore the deeper power and powerful practice of shaping what shapes us.

'THE PURPOSE OF PRACTICE' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 11, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

We know artists, athletes, and actors practice their craft or skill in order to perform. One daughter practiced scales and arpeggios, every day, for hours, to get better at playing the violin. What do you practice and why? We know that the more we develop a skill, the more we are able to share it freely, without inhibition, or even to transcend ourselves in our expression of that skill. Practice is something we do to move us along toward a goal. What might you want to practice regularly……generosity, compassion, patience.......so that you can be more free in your expression of it?
