  1. Which facebook page? Which site? Are there links? And what about homework you're supposed to mail to HQ, can I post it to whatever that site is? If I have to mail my tests and homework from some classes, does that mean I can mail all my work from all my classes to HQ for grading? How will I know if something has been graded when I post it to the site?
  2. Some people wonder, "Why even bother with all the literary/religious themes and trappings when they are Atheists?" Answer: The theme symolizes what the group represents as a whole and the trappings fulfill our human need for ritualized solidarity.
  3. I believe that Pauly Shore(Pauly Shore - Wikipedia) is a "Sacred Clown" and an embodiment of faith, hope, and charity and is a living example(Patron Saint) of Universal Living via Freedom/Chillin, Food/Grindage, and Sexuality/Nugs for both "Heaven" and "Hell". He is an example for us all. Basically, he is a living embodiment of everything the ULC believes and stands for!!!...which is(in case you forgot): Tenet: Do only that which is right.(You must decide what is right for you, and not condemn others if their "right" is different than yours. Every individual is free to practice the
  4. Be careful not to get confused. Taking a Doctor course at the seminary does not make you a Doctor. To achieve a ULC Doctorate you must have completed and passed 15 Seminary courses (as explained by Amy Long on YouTube). Bachelor-5 courses (Chaplin- 8 specific courses) Master-10 courses Doctor-15 courses
  5. Universal Life Church/ULC Seminary Forum Home It still exists but, it like everything else in the ULC, fails like Starscream!!! Is anyone even at the helm of the ship anymore!?! Is my church DEAD!?! What is the point of me doing this stupid effing course if nothing is even going to come of it?
  6. You are correct. And I have every intention of starting a ULC Church in my local area which already exists in some form but is still in its infancy, thusly baby steps... And since, the price is so very negligible, why not? They are but stepping stones to a greater foundation.
  7. I am having the exact same issue. Perhaps, we can get HQ or the Seminary to put out a guidebook in the Store or provide a cheap course so that we actually know what the hell we're doing.
  8. The paperwork/price is is a means to an ends. The important thing is the recognition of Sainthood. Sainthood can be likened to a form of godhood-achieved. Being recognized as a living Saint can be very empowering and act as a driving reason to simply be a better person. There is a lot of wasted flesh out there. You have to sift through all the rough to find the gems. Sainthood is a motivation of spirit. Corruption is a relative perspective. All churches have something to sell.
  9. I agree. Gandhi and Mother Teresa are good examples of Holy people not being quite what we were lead to believe. I personally believe FDR to be a Saint as well as Pauly Shore(actual ULC Saint since June 18,2020; It's ok to laugh. The reason for his Sainthood will be listed in due time). There are many people I plan to have Sainted. Not every person worth emulating is worthy of Sainthood. It is something that must be discerned in the "Spirit".
  10. Much know your Kirby. Fair enough. I see your point. But sometimes self empowerment comes from emulation of that which inspires you. The certificate acts like legal "lube" as it were and is only in place so that our way of life cannot be impeded by redtape bullcrap. It is simply a means to an ends but in no way invalidates the ends. If you know what I mean.
  11. I can't speak for other forms of Paganism, but I think the reason that there aren't really any Satanists or LHPers on here is because most of us are independent loners with little use for a forum of this nature. Most of us have our preferred members only forums just for the LHP and most of them are specialized and specific to a particular path. Not only that, but most LHP groups actively teach and encourage hating and attacking anyone of the Abrahamic Faith. So it is probably a good thing at this juncture that there are so few of us here. At the very least, you got me.
  12. There are 2 different Sainthood packages available for different prices. There used to be more. I take my ministry seriously, thusly I take sainthood seriously. It is a shame that sainthood within our church is so horribly nerfed. I seek to utilize the concept of sainthood in our church to its greatest potential. A Saint is an exemplary individual worthy of celebration that inspires others to be more than they are. If a Saint is to be emulated then the Saint must be known. Hence, the entire point of this thread.
  13. Morality is a human construct with no bearing on the rest of existence. Morality is irrelavent. Every creature of reality is responsible for their own reactions and responces to whatever life throws at them. Being a Minister doesn't mean that you have to be a bleeding heart. It just means you have to be "Strong" enough to help people back up when they "fall".
  14. It could be that we are simply designed that way. According to some forms of Satanism, the Abrahamic God is the Demiurge that imprisoned the souls(in bodies of flesh) created by our Father-Lord SatanLucifer before he could finish us. Because of this, Satan encourages us to evolve spiritually in order to acheive the Magnum Opus so that we may loosen our physical restrictions and shine forth as enlightened beings. Also humans are naturally competative, jealous, greedy, and gluttonous and thusly will always seek to be better than their neigbors so as to have the edge over others.
  15. Jesus was an Apocalyptic Jew and as such was very familiar with the Book of Enoch. So much so that he and his disciples often quoted from it. It is clear to me that in order to have a proper understanding of Jesus and his teaching that one must first understand the Book of Enoch.
  16. ULC Saint: someone who has exercised the spiritual virtues of "faith, hope, and charity" to an extraordinary degree; someone who provides inspiration, works "miracles", and offers hope and help to others. (By purchasing/bestowing Sainthood within the ULC upon a beloved person, their name is canonized in the official records of the church for all time!) Where is this record of saints and why can't I find it anywhere? What is the point of recognizing someone's sainthood if the data is not going to be available to anyone? What a waste of money!!! Someone post a link to the official li
  17. Much of what we think we know or have been taught to believe as scientific fact is actually mostly just the most commonly accepted beleifs and theories of the scientific community that have been cobbled together to form a functioning framework in order to better understand what we call reality. Suppossedly, the US government officially put out a bunch of documentation a while back that prove that the Greys are real and that they have actively been in contact with our government for at least decades. They are referred to as Ebens by our government. Supposedly, the Greys created us a
  18. I too, have been desperately trying to get ahold of this course as well. There are a couple of Youtube videos of Kirby talking about the course and the ULU. Other than that I have found nothing. There must be a way to get the Seminary or HQ to start offering this course. What we need is an actual ULU on location somewhere with real ULC Ministers as the teachers because the online seminary is clearly hanging on by a thread and the helpdesk doesn't seem to exist anymore. What is the point if no one is manning the desk? We need to pool together and do better. Keep in mind, however, that HQ is in
  19. Master of Chaplaincy Lesson 19 Write a paragraph describing your “tool belt” and your “tool box.”: I am horribly impoverished so gather appropriate materials for my ministry has been slow and difficult. Currently, I have gathered-business cards, notepads and pens, cell phone, dress shoes and clergywear, computer(already need a new one, though), sanitizer, administrative items, some portable worship items. There are obviously still things that I must obtain in order to be effective. I have good posture. I am a good listener and make eye contact often when engaging others. I s
  20. Master of Chaplaincy Lesson 18 Look at your ministry. What are the stressor points? What is your week like? Develop your spiritual care plan. Write a brief description of it.: My stressor points center around surprise labor and an overdependence on me and my advice from my clients. My week is constantly open and fluid. I make a point to let the "Universe" guide my day and my life. For spiritual care-I pray often, use healing/breathing techniques on myself when needed, practice divination, and use food/suppliments/plants/insence/stones as medicine. These nonscheduled practice
  21. Master of Chaplaincy Lesson 17 List the ways you are held accountable and write a brief description.: Via the lesson, I am accountable to myself, others, groups, and deity. However, from the perspective of my personal path these categorizations are not relevent as everything is a manifestation of "Self". Thusly it all the same. One need only to do that which is right and to communicate effectively. Schedules are a given. Do you have a mentor? If not, what is your plan to find and establish a mentoring relationship? If you do, write a brief description and the ble
  22. Master of Chaplaincy Lesson 16 Who in your ministry do you see as a potential soul-friend? Do you have more than one potential soul-friend? Describe in a paragraph or two how you have been or become a soul-friend to this person and how you would like to improve this relationship.: My spouse is my anamcara. As of yet, there are no others. We met in highschool through a mutual friend and our souls instantly connected. Through the years, even though we no longer live together, our souls connection and understanding of eachother has only strengthened. We continue to work in tandem on t
  23. Master of Chaplaincy Lesson 15 Using simplicity, describe how you would develop a “sacred space” in a small or medium space and how it would be led.: For the absolute bare minimum I would simply cleanse/bless/consecrate the location as a sacred space(indoor/outdoor/anywhere). Upgrade1: (Regularly used location) use of ULC logos and Certificates to give a feel of authenticity, a podium or table with ULC bookstand, a seating area. Upgrade2: (Permenantly used location) use of any and all official ULC accoutrements and trappings and proper seats and prayer/meditation areas. Upgrade3: S
  24. Master of Chaplaincy Lesson 1 What do you know of Chaplains?: The Chaplains purpose is to provide for the free exercise of religion for everyone, not just those of the same faith as the Chaplain. Chaplains provide the opportunity to practice, or not practice, religion as an individual choice and style. Chaplains provide for the spiritual needs of all peoples. Chaplains tend to service those in transit and are often specialists in their ministry location. Chaplains specialize in leading religious services for those who attend Chapel and provide spiritual counseling and advice on rel
  25. Master of Chaplaincy Lesson 2 Describe someone you know who has the Divine Mark. What set them apart?: I have seen this mark in my husband. People are naturally drawn to his comfort and counsel. He is very spiritual and is gifted spiritually and magickally. He has helped more people than I can count. I am so very proud of how he has grown in spirit. Has anyone observed the mark in you? Write down what they have said?: I dunno if anyone else has but I saw the mark in myself at a very young age. It is also in my natal chart and my palms and face and in my handwriting. I was clearl
