The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 30, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald L. Davis, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

One of the beautiful points of departure, Ware Lecturer Brian Stevenson gave us at UUA General Assembly was to change the narrative. Changing the narrative is not as easy as changing the water in a fish bowl. But that metaphor is appropriate from the standpoint of the fish. We swim in water called white supremacy. Let's not be afraid to empty our bowl and pour in living water … water that reconciles, that heals, that gives us continuing opportunities.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 30, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

It is said that after the Battles of Lexington and Concord John Adams became the voice for independence at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. As we finish a month of messages on the gifts of independence and American faith, I will look at what we might learn from the first Vice President and second President of the United States that can give us inspiration in these days that are marked more by discord than concord.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 23, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Part of the so called "gift" and sometimes guilt of independence is a certain unavoidable trait of co-dependency, that should not go unnoticed or without mention. Among the core characteristics of codependency, a common trait is an incessant, if not excessive, reliance on other people for approval and a sense of self-worth and identity. We may not be able to master the issues of innate co-dependency, but we can learn to manage it, so as not to be consumed and controlled by it. Interdependency seems to be the better and perhaps naturally creative design.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

It's been said that the United States of America is a nation that was founded on a secular creed. Rooted in the Declaration of Independence and echoed throughout our history are certain commonly held truths. As we continue our July theme of Independence and our series on This American Faith, I will share a message regarding the American creed.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 16, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Independence, basically means un-dependent, not dependent or not a pendant. A pendant is a piece of jewelry that hangs from a chain worn around the neck, in fact the word pendant comes from Old French, meaning literally to hang or hanging. In a sense, if you’re not hanging, you’re falling or in some ways just failing . And the only way to avoid falling/failing is to hang onto whatever is available or “dependable” to prevent the downward spirals in life, consciousness, and culture.

There is an old saying, “No man (person) is an island to himself.” Human ego seeks independence or not depending on anything or anyone else, for fear they or it may be unreliable or undependable.

The gift if independence is also a sign of distrust, insecurity, and fear. We must learn to find its legitimate place and space in our consciousness and our world.

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 2, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

The gift of independence, is in many ways an illusive fantasy that takes imagination, effort, and creative work. A gift, something willingly given without being earned, can be taken back. Talent, something we're born with is natural aptitude and is neither given nor taken away, even though it can atrophy from lack of use. Talent can be nurtured, enhanced, and perfected but independence is earned or procured and must be maintained. Realistically, independence is actually a form of dependency or co-dependency. It needs attention to be maintained in a way that talent doesn't. Theoretically, independence should be intrinsic and innate. But rarely, if ever, independence is experienced in love, relationships, socially, psychologically, and physically. Let's work both for and on our gifts of independence!

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 2, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Our words are powerful - beyond belief.

We have felt the power of a friend's kind words to lift our spirits. And many of us have experienced how the words from a loved one can be crushing. How do we assure we are speaking the truth in love, coming from a place of love? How do we keep from engaging in verbally abusive language? The struggle to interpret, protect, and use our rights to free speech is both personal and political. It's not just up to the Supreme Court to make rulings on free speech, it's up to each and every one of us – especially in this era when we have the power to call each other out, and to call each other in.
