The sermon was delivered on Sunday, October 6, 2019, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.
Come experience and learn about ecstatic worship. I will be drawing on stories and photos from three years of travel on a mountain bicycle around Asia, the Middle-East and Europe in my early 20’s as I explore the ecstatic in worship. Why are people drawn to transcendence and what are some of the diverse and colorful ways people find it? I’ll share stories of Sufi mystics who dance into a trance and Hindu holy men, called Sadhus, who use drugs as a way to connect to the god Shiva. I will also draw parallels to Christian Pentecostalism and the Great Awakening of Christianity in the 18th and 19th centuries in America.
