'LOVE IS A BATTLEFIELD' - A sermon by Rev. Gerald Davis

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 10, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Gerald Davis, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Author and professor Cornell West often reminds us that justice is just love in public. I believe love in public, unfortunately, requires struggle – from Seneca Falls to Selma and Stonewall. To reference President Obama, we have witnessed how struggle can lead to justice. Conflict, therefore, is not always a bad thing. Come ride with me on this freedom train onto the battlefield.

'AMERICAN JIHAD' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, July 3, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

Jihad has become a scary word in the west among non-Muslims. It’s been used to refer to holy wars and insurgencies. Yet, the word ‘Jihad’ is one of the sacred pillars of ‪#‎Islam‬. We are told Islam is a religion of peace. It’s probably time more of us understand what this word and concept truly mean.

'WHAT DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE?' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Victor M. Parachin

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 26, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Victor M. Parachin, Guest Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

What the world needs now is love, sweet love,

It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of

– Burt Bacharach

That song was first recorded in 1965 and gained popularity all over the world. Love is important. We think about it, talk about it, sing about it. But, what does “love” look like? What is the “love” that the world needs now?

'TWO AMERICAS' - A message by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The message was delivered on Sunday, June 19, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

MESSAGE DESCRIPTION

The mass shooting in Orlando on Sunday has given way to two visions of America. Many of us have heard what the pundits and politicians are saying.  We are seeing how the ties that bind a nation of people from all nations can be shredded. The question before people of goodwill is "What does love call us to do?" This question cannot be divorced from "What does common sense call us to do?" or "How do we deal with real threats to our safety and security?" Like a parent's love, the love that binds us, is also a love that fiercely protects us. In this culture of soundbites and slogans, it is time for thoughtful people to look with a deeper lens at the problems before us and to discern the love and loyalties that are most likely to save us.  I look forward to contributing to the dialogue and to "putting my thumb on the scale" on behalf of the only America that makes any moral, practical and meaningful sense to me.

'YOU, ME, AND MUHAMMAD ALI' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 12, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

New York Times journalist, Wesley Morris called him, “the most important political-cultural figure to survive the deadly tumult of the 1960s and flourish in the 1970s.” Muhammed Ali’s beliefs transfixed and polarized our country thirty years before the Black Lives Matter movement. Ali is the personification of courage. Words like radical, truth, fame and, risk describe the complicated and contradictory man who turned boxing into a referendum on the state of the country. Born Cassius Clay during the Jim Crow era in Louisville, Kentucky, he learned to box after his red Schwinn bicycle was stolen at the age of twelve. At 22, Ali won his first heavyweight title. Join us this Sunday as we explore what his life has to tell and teach us about courage today.

'THE GRACE OF DARING COURAGE' - A sermon by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 5, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Bishop Carlton D. Pearson, Affiliate Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

It seems that grace appears or is needed at the worst times in our lives. To amaze is defined as “causing great surprise or wonder”. That could be anything from a child being born to September 11th and the trade center towers crumbling to the ground.

Is it the grace or the events that necessitate its appearance or presence in our lives that amazes us most? Perhaps it’s both; lost and found, blind now seeing. Being lost and blind is almost as amazing as being found and later seeing. Both tend to be other than ordinary. Guess it’s all relative.

'THE SUMMER OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY' - A sermon by Rev. Barbara Prose

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, June 5, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

In the Wizard of Oz, the lion’s, the scarecrow’s, and the tin man’s natural or God-given gifts are the parts of their personality they can’t see themselves. Dorothy and her three friends must take a long journey to discover what was right in front of their eyes all the time. What if your innate gifts are invisible to you? What road must you walk to discover them and what friends will you need to help you live into them? I hope you’ll join me as we begin our Summer of Living Dangerously, including the themes of Courage (June), Conflict (July), and Commitment (August). The world can’t wait for us to discover our brains, our hearts and our courage. The time to start the journey is now as we celebrate our own high school graduations and all our members who are ready for the next level of exploration and expression in their own lives.

'UNFURL YOURSELF IN GRACE' - A homily by Rev. David Ruffin

The homily was delivered on Sunday, May 22, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. David Ruffin, Assistant Minister.

HOMILY DESCRIPTION

“Unfurl yourself into the grace of new beginning. That is at one with your life’s desire… For your soul senses the world that awaits you.” —John O’Donohue

What is possible when we truly, fully receive the gift of Grace? What power do we release in our lives? What does it look like to not just have faith that grace will be there when we most need it (i.e. when our normal control mechanisms fail us) but to surrender to it, opening ourselves to receive and follow the flow of grace, each and every day?! The promise of grace - the unearned, unconditional love and beauty, and “right here, right now,” goodness of life, is the promise of the possibility of freedom from fear. Not freedom from vulnerability or heartbreak. But true freedom from ultimate fear. Can you let this promise give birth to you anew? What are you free to be and do with this one wild beautiful life of yours?

'MAKING MORE SPACE FOR GRACE' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar

The sermon was delivered on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.

SERMON DESCRIPTION

If grace is a gift freely given to all people including the righteous and the wicked, how are you doing in relationship to grace? Are you “making space for grace” as Rev. Barbara Prose asked last Sunday? Is there room in your daily life and in your heart for love and spirit to enter in new and surprising ways? It is Pentecost Sunday and opening oneself as a vessels of the spirit is how the first church service began. It was an eclectic and diverse group of people who gathered on Pentecost and found their lives transformed. How are we like them and what is required for us to open ourselves as recipients and as conduits of God’s love? What would it mean if we did?
