All Souls Unitarian Church, Tulsa, OK


Jul 29, 2012

Sermon delivered on Sunday, July 29, 2012, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Assistant Minister.

For any of us to survive in the world today, we need a roof over our heads, enough healthy food to eat, and a good education. As a religious community that believes in deeds not creeds, we are called to create just such a world. Since 1994, our HOUS (Housing Outreach for Unitarian Souls) volunteers have been moving toward making this dream a reality, by steadily working on one house after another. Their quiet persistence has paved the way for more than one hundred families to stay healthier and happier in their own homes!

These days HOUS works with Rebuilding Together Tulsa. A spokesperson for RTT says the typical homeowner they serve is a single African American woman, over sixty, who is caring for multiple generations in one home. Back in 1994, HOUS’s founding members had a dream. They dreamed if they could do it, others would too. They’ve done it. Now it’s our turn to get organized so that more can join together in building the world we dream about.

We are a community that helps our members, our friends, and our neighbors to thrive and not just survive. I hope you’ll pay attention to your dreams, get out your hammers, and join me this Sunday as we end our Summer of Love and Justice with stories of how ordinary people can make all the difference in the world.
