The sermon was delivered on Sunday, April 28, 2013, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.
Have you ever wanted to simplify your life? A popular hymn is titled, “’Tis a Gift To Be Simple.” I write this while I am listening to internet radio over a Bluetooth player as I type on my laptop computer and eat what is probably a genetically modified carrot; and now my phone is vibrating to tell me a text message has just arrived from the pharmacy to let me know my child’s medication is ready to be picked up at theirdrive through window. As soon as I’m done writing this I’m going to put on a dry-cleaned shirt and go pick up the medicine. I may make a call as I’m driving or listen to an audio book. All this before making it to the office. But I better check my email and Facebook and send a Tweet before leaving for the day. Whether this sounds familiar or unbelievable, join me Sunday as I tackle the subject of “simplicity” for a sermon that was purchased in the auction by Lisa and Jim Perrault. In fact, it is a topic with deep religious, philosophical and practical roots.
