  2. Ministry vs. Church

    So, fellow ULC'rs what is your take on the difference between having a ministry or a church and do you see any difference? Your take is most welcome here! Thanks

    A good attitude is paramount for ULC ministers - Here is a little something to start your day! The Best Recipe to Start Your Day 1 cup of dreams mixed with 1 dash of reading, then add 1 large proportion of physical activity with 3 ounces of enthusiastic desire, sprinkled with 1 large dose of fresh air inhaled at sunrise Knead everything above well, and then add 1 heaping spoon of joy, happiness and song 1 heaping spoonful of Faith, Hope, Charity and Love Pour it all into a glass of pure water. Then top everything off with a smile and drink! (used with permission from the book "When Angels Dream, book of the north) Love and Light to all!

  6. You have me thinking, a lot, ministry for women is not very accepted, even now. I officiate but once in while we get a request for my Son, they want a man to officiate. I minister to friends and minster to neighbors by example and helping when I can. I would love to do more volunteering but I take care of my husband who can cook for him self and needs help getting up and down, so I'm pretty much at home. When we have a wedding my Son goes with me and we don't stay so we can get back home. Its hard I am proud to be a ULC ordained but now that I think about it a minister not in the normal sense LOL.

  8. Hello

    Hello! Welcome to the forum!
  9. Very interesting questions. I am a full time minister 24/7. I would perform any ministry duty called up to perform 24/7. I am not seasonal as I do this all year. I consider myself active as I do marriages all year. I have only done one memoral service but Im open to any service that ministers do. I dont work in a mainstrem organized church but would if asked and being a women not many of them would ask. The doctrine of "do that which is right" which I believe is the heart and soul of ULC is forever at the for front of everything I do and dont do. If I were so inclined it would make for a great Tattoo with the ULC logo above it!

    That is a true blessing you were able to officiate your Sons wedding. Many blessing to you!
  11. Light and Darkness

    This is a most interesting verse. I checked out some other variations of it on Biblegateway.com. I tried to attached a file that shows some of the variations from other translations but I don't have the way to convert it so go there and check is out. Some of the translations they have I have never heard of. Since we are all a part of God and he is in us, we are in him, we can create light or we can create darkness. We have the yin and yang within us. The freewill to do either. Darkness is the absence of all light. This represents the picture of not knowing. “keep them in the dark” . This can also represent un enlightenment. This word indicates we have come from darkness and into light. How do we create light? Turn on a switch and a light bulb comes on. Turn on our mind to endless possibilities and the light bulb is above our head! New truths, new thoughts and light is within us. These opinions are mine alone. trie
  12. ordination

    This might help
  13. Hey! Nice to meet you! I was a independent insurance agent for 15 years during part of this life and I'm now retired and working full time at being a ulc minister. Officiating and writing books that are in a rewrite currently but loving helping. I have a Masters in Ministry this year from ULC Seminary. Anyone traveling through Tucson Az is welcome to stop and say hi!
  14. Sorcress Drawing

    Beautiful!
  15. Very interesting, I don't have quite the optimism of the future in general as some of you. I see the clergy in the future following more of the world view and bending to what the government wants it to say. I do believe we at ULC may be the saving grace for the world. We hold different views as most main stream religions and because we are so varied we walk to a different drum. We will be the spiritual, real spiritual leaders in the future. We will listen and guide those who do not want to follow what someone says should be. We are independent of spirit and have a soul that flies. We learn from each other and are not afraid to share what we learn. I think I got off track but you get the gest. I don't follow any main stream religion, I am Universal in belief! Love you all!
  16. Therapeutic Touch

    That really helps me! Thank you so much, lots to think about!
  17. Therapeutic Touch

    This is so interesting, I have studied Reiki level 1 but the teachers who do alignment seem to want a lot of money to do it. Please continue this discussion Its really interesting! Thanks.
  18. Hi all! I am of the belief that we are most defiantly recycled! Having been told I am over 10,000 years old and some days I most defiantly feel like it. I truly believe we are reincarnated. I do not believe we go through steps like being a animal and progressing up to a human. I do believe we are sent back into different situations to each learn or teach and most times both. I know of a few of my past lives. One I was a monk and one an orphan. Would love to hear your thoughts and experiences with this!
