The sermon was delivered on Sunday, February 10, 2013, during the contemporary service at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Kathleen Rolenz, Guest Minister.
Unitarian Universalists have an ambiguous and complicated relationship with Jesus. We may be okay with “God,” but when it comes to “Jesus,” we may feel that his message has become so compromised as to render him irrelevant for the 21st Century. The Jesus we know has been stolen from that place, and from the place in history that he deserves. Who stole Jesus, and why? And, should we try to steal him back?
