- 10:00 a.m. - Sunday Zoom Service: "Finding Our Way", Speaker: Rev. Ann Tyndall. Like you, I am immersed in the dual pandemics of Covid-19 and the ravages of pervasive racism. To fight Covid-19 I work from home, mask-up in public, and connect via Zoom. To strengthen my resolve to be consciously anti-racist, I have been interrogating my white privilege, the birthright of anyone born white in our society. Having been raised in the Unitarian Universalist tradition, there is always an element of meaning-seeking in endeavors of the heart and mind such as these. This morning, I will offer a teaching from Shambhala Buddhism to explore how we might find our way through these pandemics to a healthier expression of human being and just society.

- 10:00 a.m. - Sunday Zoom Service: "Nonmaleficence" - This message was delivered on Sunday, October 6, 2019, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Barbara Prose, Executive Director of Ministry. We UUs, especially those of us deemed agnostics, atheists and humanists, feel good to let go of inherited or culturally imposed beliefs about a punishing God, and to embrace our inherent worth and dignity. The next step – which sometimes lasts a lifetime - is a struggle to accept our human responsibility for evil in the world. Let us explore the principle and practice of non-harm as a response to modern day evils. Primum non nocere, first do no harm, is central in the Hippocratic oath taken by physicians, in the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha, and in the yoga sutras. If you were to practice non-harm for a month, a week, or a day …. how would your choices change?
- Sunday, August 2:
- 10:00 a.m. - Sunday Zoom Service: "Creation & Evolution" - The sermon was delivered on Sunday, January 8, 2017, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister. As science continues to discover a universal story of how life came to exist, that story has the potential to become the unifying human story of creation. Such a unifying story could help humanity transcend our religious conflicts and recognize our interconnectedness. Creation myths of the many religions and cultures of the world would continue to provide values and cultural identity without having to compete regarding which story is the one true story. In such a world, science and religion would each have their respective roles and would not be seen as adversaries
