Ep. 2 A Five Point Theology for Christian Universalism
Grace Saves All: Christianity and Universal Salvation
In this episode I provide an overview of the Biblical foundation for my five point approach to a Christian Universalist theology. The five points are: God is a loving parent to all, God sincerely wants to save all, God, in Christ, covers the sin of all, God is sovereign over all, and God will be all in all.

'Ordinary Problems: A Christian Universalist Perspective' - A sermon by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar
All Souls Unitarian Church
The sermon was delivered on Sunday, February 22, 2015, at All Souls Unitarian Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, by Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar, Senior Minister.SERMON DESCRIPTION”How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.” —Rainer Maria RilkeOrdinary problems are not necessarily trivial problems. Everyone of us has problems of our own; even if we like to pretend we have it all together and even though we tend to focus on others’ problems. Sometimes we focus so much on the big problems that we fail to find the beauty, teaching, and the grace within the ordinary problems of our lives. Sometimes our greatest teachers are the small obstacles and challenges we encounter every day. I delivered this message in the Traditional and The Point services last week. This week, in the Contemporary service, I will share it from a Christian and Universalist perspective.SUBSCRIBE TO AUDIO PODCAST:VIEW ON YOUTUBE:SUBSCRIBE TO WATCH OTHER VIDEOS:GIVE A DONATION TO HELP US SPREAD THIS LOVE BEYOND BELIEF:LET'S CONNECT:Facebook: Twitter: All Souls Church Website:
