'OUT OF DARKNESS COMES LIGHT' - A homily by Joseph Boyd

The homily was delivered on Sunday, December 25, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Joseph Boyd, Intern Minister.

HOMILY DESCRIPTION

The first words spoken by God in the Hebrew scriptures are: “Let there be light.” What meaning can we make from these simple words? This time of year, combined with the first words spoken by God, teach us an important lesson; out of darkness comes light. Join me on Christmas day as we discover this light together, helping us engage the times we are living in with conviction and creative energy.

'THE MISSED STORY OF ONE GOD' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, December 18, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Deuteronomy 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 

Deuteronomy 6:5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 

It is not good for man to be alone, the only one, or the only one without special accompaniment. If we are made in the image and likeness of God, should we also be one? Or, is the entire idea of oneness just a fantasy? Do we anticipate oneness as a possibility more than a probability? Is there a difference between our God and your God?

'SYRIAN SOLSTICE' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, December 18, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Solstice represents the darkest time of the year and comes with the promise of hope being born out of that darkness. Today, people all over the world are witnessing atrocities and war crimes of unbelievable proportions in Syria through photos, tweets of despair, and live-feeds on social media. As millions of people - including thousands of children - face starvation, barrel bombs and torture at the hands of their fellow human beings, are there any signs of hope's promise in such a dark time? Where is God in this mass devastation? How and why are Syrian Christians creating makeshift crèches? How have Syrian Muslims maintained their holidays and hope despite the inhumanity and destruction? Let's not just talk about the theory of light's birth in dark times, let's stare into the heart of darkness today and see if we can find any light.

'BRIDGING HUMANITY TO DIVINITY, THE RECONNECT!' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, December 11, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the farthest reaches, regions, and rhythms of consciousness there is a reality and intelligence people like to call God. If, in fact, God is infinite (without end), then how can we who are finite (with limitations and a perceived end), define an Infinite Reality? God is not a name or a pronoun. God is not an it, a he, a she, or a they. God is a belief or ideology that varies according to culture, geography, tradition, and history. Bridging our humanity to divinity is the art and science of the human soul and sojourn.

The message was delivered on Sunday, December 11, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

MESSAGE DESCRIPTION

Our national social justice campaign declares, “We Are Standing on the Side of Love.”  But how is it done?  How do we counter hatred and stay calm?  How do we fight racism and remain friends?  How do we meet our enemy and engage peacefully? Our times demand that we engage with these questions.

'THE COURAGE TO BE' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, December 4, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Sometimes it takes a lot of courage to go on living our lives. Other times it takes courage to change course. Where does this courage come from? How do we rise above the everyday circumstances we find ourselves in and act in the face of fear, danger, or despair? Some people draw on a higher power and others on a higher purpose. These are complicated and troubling times. Where does your “courage to be” originate?

'COVENANTAL DISAGREEMENT' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 27, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

My favorite scriptural covenant is recorded as something Jesus said in the Gospel of Luke 10:27, ”Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind”; and “Love your neighbor as yourself” which suggests both vertical and horizontal covenant. Our history with indigenous people on this continent is the story of repeatedly broken covenants. How does our covenant with God impact and influence our agreements with each other?

'ONE HUMAN FAMILY' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 13, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

What now? With 50% of the people celebrating and eager, and another 50% of the people grieving or protesting, how do we find our own center? Jesus called his disciples and followers to create family with people who were drastically different than themselves. We who feel his call and the legacy of that call to expand the covenant of our country and constitution to include ALL people, know we must face the future and each other with love and trust, instead of fear and suspicion. This is our practice, this is an arduous path of the heart - to love beyond belief.

We need each other to survive.
