  4. Welcome to the Interpath Academia & Scholarship Forum Area Interpath Dialogue, Universal Virtues and Values Please take a moment to read the following: Locked topics are old topics. Feel free to start a new topic based on a locked topic to open new, updated conversation with people who visit the forum currently. Hopefully the forum description and helpful keywords will help you determine if your topic is correct for this area. The keywords are only for guidance and suggestion. They can be viewed where you go to read and start topics within the forum area. Some subject matter for your topics will be "crossover" and may fit into several different places. You should only choose one area to post your topic in. When posting a topic that can go into multiple areas: Please consider: Who is the audience you want to be presenting your topic to? Who you would like to receive a response from primarily? Examples: If you hope for a response coming mostly from the Earth-Based & Indigenous Religions for the question "What Does God Mean to You?" - post the question in the forum where the practitioners hold their discussion. If the question is posted in our Monotheist forum, the responses will be different. We ask that you choose one area for your topic and don't spam across all of them for the same question. If you want a general poll, then post it in the Interpath Dialogue forum instead of a focus group. Note: No group is excluded from posting a reply in any area. Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to participate everywhere. Others who do not study the same practice are welcomed to add comments and questions to compare, contrast and learn. If the topic isn't in an area focused on your own belief system, do not hijack the topic to make it all about you! No Territory The Interpath forums are designed so that we can observe, identify with, or learn more about central tenets and practices of other ideologies. We can observe groups engaging more naturally, using customary common greetings and observe each other using practitioner's vocabulary in the proper context of conversation vs explanation or definition. Interpath forums are not territories with exclusive borders. It is wise to assume that practitioners of every single belief system listed and even those not listed on the forum already exist here as registered members and regular visitors, or may be a lurking guest visitor who views and reads the forums.

  10. Hello and Welcome to the ULC Online Forum If you are a newly ordained minister, congratulations and welcome! We are happy to have all ministers and members join us here at the official gathering place for Universal Life Church. Please browse the forum, ask questions, and get to know other ULC Ministers and Members. If you are about to perform your first wedding ceremony for friends or family, more congratulations are in order! Hopefully the following information will help point you in the right direction for this very special and unique occasion. Many of our newly ordained ministers ask about where to find ceremonies for an upcoming wedding. Our forum has ceremonies available to read in various areas. The ULC Minister Supply Store offers supplies for weddings which includes many types of ceremony books you may be looking for. For other information needs, we also have a Legal Resource Center & Minister FAQ here on the forum. The Help Desk forum holds Frequently Asked Questions. The Legal Questions Forum is open to post a question in if something in the FAQ is not clear or might appear to be out of date. Ministers who are registered on our forum and have 25 posts/replies can add information to the forum to share about their ULC Congregations or Websites. Information about forum post count achievements and the colored medals below our usernames called 'pips' can be found here. Every registered visitor who has made 25 posts/replies will unlock the ability to create a custom title in their profile to replace "Titled Friend." Or, one can choose to keep the default titles listed if preferred. Except for the Forum Innkeeper accounts, (site owners) the ULC Online Forum Staff is presently and has always been maintained and run by a wonderful and dedicated group of unpaid volunteers. We are thankful for the generous offer of their time over many years. It is our hope that you will take the opportunity to get to know them and our other long-time forum family members. If there are any questions or concerns regarding the forum, posts or replies, all members of the forum are quite helpful. A friendly hand is likely to assist you. Please take the following into serious consideration when creating a topic and posting a reply: ULC Online Forum Statements, Rules and Policies Again welcome and enjoy your visits and interactions here at the ULC Online Forum. Other helpful information: The only doctrine of Universal Life Church is; "Do that which is right." Universal Life Church was founded by Kirby Hensley and incorporated in the state of California in 1962. Universal Life Church International Headquarters (ULCHQ) is located in Modesto, California. Under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, your ordination is recognized as legal in all 50 States. Laws and protocols regarding officiating weddings and performing other ceremonies will vary based on your location. Your ordination information is kept on record at ULCHQ. If your name, address or other important information changes, please submit an update here. The current presiding head of the church at Headquarters is Reverend Andre Hensley. The official Universal Life Church family is: ULCHQ, ULC Online, and ULC Seminary. There are no other site names or affiliations considered official or recognized by our Headquarters other than the sites listed above. Becoming ordained through our websites is 100% free. If your ordination was not free, the site is not an affiliate of Universal Life Church. It is another entity. If you were not ordained through any one of the three sites listed above, we will not have your ordination records to issue a credential because you were ordained by another entity. You are welcomed and encouraged to become ordained through our website and have a record of your ordination entered into the church records at Headquarters in Modesto, California. You can then begin your own process to receive your legal document(s) through the original founding Headquarters or the genuine Universal Life Church associates. There is no requirement to be ordained through any of our sites (or at all) to participate on the forum, shop at our store, or belong to any of our online communities. This information is also on our Wikipedia page here.
  11. Just wanted to get my own intro in here. I joined the site just this morning. So... on to the intro I guess... I'm in my mid-40s, Pagan since 1990 and interested in working on religious comparison and tolerance, particularly in the last few years. My Southern Baptist husband and I have been married for 22 years now without any religious conflict. I have one adult son who is currently undecided. So many people are leaning towards dealing with weddings and blessings, which are important and fantastic. But I feel there is a whole side being overlooked in the pagan community that deals with crisis. I'm here because I'd like to focus on study that will lead me towards doing alternative pastoral duties in hospitals and funeral rites, and pagan related counseling for those who are having trouble dealing with the passing of a loved one. I don't feel ready for such until I've gained a bit more proper study to that effect. I'm working through the social work side through other programs but would like to focus on the spiritual side as well. Anyway, greetings, well met and hope to see you all around.
