The sermon was delivered on Sunday, November 10, 2019, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry.
Jesus was born into a closed, covenanted community and spent his years of ministry queering that covenant. Could members of the community work on the sabbath? Yes! Could their fellowship include women? Yes! Could their communities include sex workers and tax collectors? Yes! Were touch and intimacy allowed? Yes! The concept of covenant is powerful enough to create exclusive and inclusive communities. As our covenant here at All Souls expands and queers itself, we need tools to keep the circle whole. This Sunday, join me as we explore the power of apology and other tools to help us heal and return to and/or create right relationship. “When you are offering your gift at the altar, if you remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother or sister, and then come and offer your gift.” (Matthew 5:23-24)
