The message was delivered on Sunday, October 1, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry, at the Humanist Service.
This Sunday we consider the many ways water shapes our lives. Long-time member Jean Ann Fausser, who won this sermon in last year’s Gala, will have an original piece of art entitled, A River Runs Through Me, featured in the sanctuary. Water is the source of life. It also destroys life. Water is a human right. It is also big business. Water is the symbol for God in our Simple Gifts, Too painting. Moses died before he could cross over the river Jordan into the promised land and Jesus was baptized in that same river. Greek mythology teaches us that we cross over the river Styx when we die. The Tao teaches that water does not resist, yet it conquers all. Our bodies are 60% water. Whether you love or fear water, together we will lift up the power of water to shape and remake our lives.
