Sermon delivered on Sunday,
June 24, 2012, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by
Rev. Tamara Lebak, Associate Minister.
The phrase "bloom where you were planted" seems to acknowledge that we are not really in control of where specifically we were planted; but more than that, we are not in control of many aspects of our lives. Ecotheology is the study of the ways we engage in our environment. It assumes the relationship between religious and spiritual views of the world and our relationship to the Earth.
In the Christian scriptures we are told that we are not of the world but in the world. In this sermon, Rev. Lebak explores the question, What do our liberal religious values ask of us when we reflect on the relationship between human beings and the Earth upon which we live?
