  1. Welcome enjoy this site, lots of area to explore!
  2. Anyone who has never experienced a life performance needs to put it on their bucket list. You really cant compare a movie or Music from a recording to being there live. I always think of hearing and Orchestra for the 1st time, you can feel the emotion of the music and better yet the emotion of each person playing their instrument. Their emotion comes through and out to the audience with the Music. You cant get that even with the best surround system. Feeling the emotions may be subject to be intuitive but I encourage all to see some stage performances and support your local theater, Sometimes you can see some stunning actors who are big names and just want to hone their skills!
  3. Beautiful topic! I say this as change in ones life can be beautiful if you allow it flow from within! I have evolved or changed different beliefs most of my life, Christian, Buddhist, Pentecostal, Metaphysical. Each time I embraced the change and had to reconcile within my self how the beliefs all messed or meshed together LOL. Change is not easy for most people and I am still trying to educate my spouse that being Metaphysical does not mean I'm a witch and gave up on Jesus. Just because I have a Sun Wand and lots of crystals I use, hey its just my path! All I have learned over the years have lifted me up to be the person I am today. I do regret some of what I have said in the past, but dont we all? The path I am on now some call New Thought, I call it Old Thought re born! I may change beliefs and labels but I am still me and if you know me, you know I evolve all the time. Same can be said of our jobs in the so called real work, from factor worker, to insurance agent, to customer service rep to claims processor to legal secretary to Officiant and now Author. Enjoy your journey and never be afraid to grow and change! Love and Light!
  4. Welcome and hope you enjoy! I look forward to hearing about what you do with your ordination!
  5. Greeting to all and welcome, been a while since I've been on, really busy but love it!
  6. Hi Guys, hope your ministries are up and running. Its not that hard to start really, especially on line. I have a ministry, a officiating business and a YouTube channel, beside the facebook pages. You just have to do it!
  7. I have used my life coach learning for my self but would not use it to replace psychology for anyone else. lf someone truly needs the skills of a psychologist I think the life coaching can be used along with psychology as a means of enhancing the psychology sessions, but instead of. What are you thoughts on the matter?
  8. Welcome Greg I was and Independent Insurance agent for 15 years! The ULC bookstore has some great books with Wedding ceremonies that cover all types of belief and non belief systems. I let the couple choose what parts they want and will use even a line from one and a line from another to Tayler it just for them. Occasionally I will write it my self if they are not finding anything they like. Best of Luck!
  9. Violence is never acceptable in the name of peace and any religion that justifies this is just a religion, man made not inspired by the Divine. Too man y times, like LObl says they turn the page to find a different quote. You can find any quote to justify your stance in your mind, but when your mind is one with the Universal God Mind, you know peace and you will radiate out peace. Too many belief systems in this world put war to be something to be proud of. Well sorry I am not buying it! War what is it good for? (I need more coffee, sorry LOL)
  10. Dear Von Noble; I love your response to the door people, LOL, recycle is good! We have a sign on our door that says "A Joyous Officiant" we do weddings at the house and elopements. What amazes me is how many people still knock and must not understand the term "Officiant" at least that is the benefit of the doubt I'm giving them . The J.W.s hold there annual convention in our town in Jan. so we get a lot of door knockers around that time, the sign helps but some from some local Christian church's also will just leave a pamphlet which does get recycled. I like your out look and appreciate the laugh.
  11. Greeting RevSam, glad you are here! I have to say I'm old school Star Trek but Spock was shall always be, my fav! Live long and prosper!
  12. WOW something to work for ! Never new this!
  13. 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!
  14. Welcome SherrylC. I try to do daily prayers for all ULC ministers and we at glad you are here! I completed my Masters in Ministry this year and would be glad to help with any questions you might have. Here is something I came across recently and its for all ULC people! 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.

  15. Thanks everyone your the best and know how to raise someone's spirits!
  16. 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.
  17. I so enjoyed reading all your posts. Love the Tao !
  18. 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!
  19. That is a true blessing you were able to officiate your Sons wedding. Many blessing to you!
  20. 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
  21. 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.

Anyone traveling through Tucson Az is welcome to stop and say hi!
