West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church

In Our Own Tongues

June 8, 2014

by Guest Minister
Reverend Tamara Lebak

Service offered by In the Hebrew scriptures, the story of the power of Babel warns against the arrogance that can arise in assuming that we are all speaking the same language and having the same experience. In the Christian Scriptures in the book of Acts, the Holy Spirit descends upon a group of people all speaking different languages and allows those present to under-stand foreigners as though they were speaking in their own language. What is the underlying unity in our diversity? What are the differences that make a difference? What do these passages teach us about how to engage in our increasingly diverse church and world? Rev. Tamara Lebak currently serves as Associate Minister at All Souls in Tulsa, OK, the largest Unitarian Universalist congregation in the country. She is also an accomplished musician currently in the recording studio with her first full-length album. She’ll share some of those songs this Sunday. We are pleased to welcome the All Souls’ Children’s Choir with Director David Smith. This 30+ strong voices of children and youth will offer special music during the service. Also, this is New Member Sunday where we’ll welcome new members into our church community.
