All Souls Unitarian Church, Tulsa, OK


Aug 11, 2019

The message was delivered on Sunday, August 11, 2019, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister, at the Humanist Service.

DESCRIPTION

Our church is being seen on “the big screen” in theaters across the country in the feature documentary, 'American Heretics: The Politics of the Gospel'. It’s certainly nothing new for Unitarians and Universalists to be accused of heresy for embracing a scientific and evolutionary worldview and for asking questions about doctrines that are considered unquestionable by some. Yet, as one watches the film the question arises “Who are the heretics in this story?” The folks who tend to call progressive religious thinkers “heretics” are shown to have strayed quite far from the foundations of Christianity. In the spirit of our summer series, Trading Places, I will explore what it’s like to be on both sides of the heresy debate. I like to think if Jesus were to come back today he would feel more welcome at All Souls than at a lot of the churches that believe they are waiting for and working for Him. Whether you are a Humanist, a Buddhist, Jewish, UU, a progressive Christian or none of the above, you will find yourself in this story.
