The sermon was delivered on Sunday, February 21, 2016, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by David Ruffin, Assistant Minister.
One of the grandest stories we tell in these United States is of our great unity amidst our diversity. E pluribus unum... “out of many one!”
We are many… but how united are we really? And do we really honor and respect our differences? We long for union and connection, sensing some greater truth in oneness. But we also fear difference and long for security. Amidst these competing commitments, we often settle for a story of unity, even if down deeper we know it ain’t necessarily so.
So let’s set aside our idealized visions of holding hands across America, and our idealized visions of our own lives while we’re at it, and explore anew where we each really are… And how we might yet come together.
