Universal Life Church

Universal Life Church Announcements - June 2009

Happy Early Father's Day and Happy Early birthday to me. (LOL)
Some of this material is repeated from last month, as I know that not everyone gets a chance to read every email that crosses your mailbox. :)
THE BOOK WILL BE BACK FROM THE PRINTERS SOON! - The book is at the printers now and is due in about a month. Those who pre-order will get it first and those of you who do should have it in your hands in the first week or so of July.
At this time, we are continuing to offer you the special deal on this amazing new 400 page book.
This book has all the wedding ceremonies from The Ultimate Wedding & Ceremony Workbook, along with tons of brand new ceremonies of wide variety.
By having the ceremonies of the yellow book in this beautiful hardbound book, you increase your level of professionalism and it's a great resource.
There are also Divorce Ceremonies, Baptisms, Baby Namings, House Blessings, Funeral Ceremonies, Pet Funerals (For a dog and for a goldfish) and a lot more. There are blessings for boats, a Quincinera ceremony and other interesting ceremonies. As a minister, it's great to be prepared. With this book, along with its companion, you'll have everything you could possibly need.

For a limited time, we are continuing to offer the book at the deeply discounted pre-sale price. The cost of printing is astronomical, so we're offering you a chance for a discount while also helping us cover the cost of getting the book printed. You can also get the first book at a discounted rate as well, to complete your collection. When you look to order the book, if you only want a copy of the second book, look at the options and change it to 'no thank you' and you'll just be charged for the one book. If you want a copy of the first ceremonies book, leave it saying 'discounted copy of first book' and you'll get that book for $19.95 as well.
Once printed, this book will never again be offered at this price, so get it while you have a chance. Order it by mail now, if you need to save up for the book, so you'll at least have the book locked in at that price. You'll have a little time to save the money before the offer is withdrawn. You can send payment when you have it.

When you order now, the books will be shipped as soon as we get them in. When you place your order, we will hold your order (with the exception of courses ordered) until the books arrive, so you may want to order the books separately.

NEW FEATURE - The newest feature I mentioned last month, is in the Spiritual Sermon section of the site. In the Religious (Christian) section, we've had a weekly sermon section where you can get a sermon emailed to you. We now have that for the Spiritual Sermon section. You'll get either a sermon or a mini-course on spiritual writings. Some of them are from our ministers and others are some great things I've found on the internet. If you are interested in spiritual topics and spiritual growth, this is a great free thing to sign up for. So far, it has been a huge success. The feedback I'm getting is overwhelmingly positive.

NEW SEMINARY EMAIL ADDRESSES? - I have an idea for a few new things and would like some feedback. I recently had someone ask if he could buy a email address. This is something I could easily set up for people to order by the year. I don't know if this is a big interest or just his. Drop me a line and let me know.

DEGREE CARDS -The other thing that I've been asked about is getting copies of degree cards for those who got a Dr. of Divinity or other degree from ulc headquarters and would like it on a degree card. We would need to see a copy of whatever degree you're asking for and its date of issue from headquarters before we could supply it, but since they don't offer the cards, we would basically duplicate it for you on a plastic card. The issuing body would still be headquarters, so this is only a new way to carry and show off your degree -- we are not issuing that particular degree itself. We only would send them out after we receive a picture of your degree with your name and date of issue visible. Is this something of interest? If so, let me know. (To clarify, we do still offer our own degrees, but the ones from headquarters are different and are separate from them. We are offering the degree cards for courses you've already finished.)

NEW COURSE: We have a brand new course, mentioned in a previous mailing, called Dr. of Spiritual Development. It's a college-level course about spiritual development. A sample can be found at The course uses NLP techniques, among others, to show you how to improve the quality of your life and your intereactions with others. Some of the topics include:

  • Improving clarity of Purpose
  • Stacking anchors to concentrate focus and intent
  • Implementing the nature of purpose into your daily lives -- Futurepacing change
  • Connecting with the Divine through naturally occurring altered states (Shamanic and Meditative States of Consciousness)
  • Sacred Trance -- Listening for the still voice within
  • Deepening Levels of Sacred Trance -- How to reach Focus Points of Awareness
  • Out of Body Journeying/Soul Journeys
  • Generative Visualization -- Connecting with the Divine through the Movies in Your Mind

It's a course like no other and it's really amazing. The reviews so far, from those who have started it, is that it's a whole new way of looking at spiritual growth.

ORDINATION CEREMONY - I've had several people ask me for a ceremony for ordination/installation. I now have a few to offer. Have any of you come up with a ceremony to ordain someone into your church or for installation into your church? If so, please send it to me and I'll post it as well. The latest ones I've received are listed under 'other' ceremonies on the site.

Essays from the various programs are at:

PRE-MARITAL COUNSELING- This is a topic that several people have asked me about. We do offer a pre-marital counseling kit that is Christian-oriented, but we'd like to have some other options. If any of you have done any pre-marital counseling and have any forms, questionnaires, or other material you'd be willing to share with the other ministers, please send it to me so I can post it. I've had a few people send me info and I'll be posting them as time permits.

RSS FEED - The RSS feed is still of concern. I'm trying to figure out how to keep it updated by email. It's a WordPress blog. I can't make it work. Does anyone know how it works and can they help me set it up? That way I can keep it updated better. Thanks. The email address I send it to will only post the title of the posting and not the actual post itself. If I can get this fixed, the RSS feed will be kept much more updated. :)

PAYPAL - I'm still having people ask, so I'll post this again. We do accept paypal. It's not hooked to the shopping cart because the interface never worked right. If you want to pay by paypal, the address is You can place your order through the store, hit 'check or money order' when you check out, then make a note that you're paying by paypal and I'll keep an eye out for it. I hope that helps. :)

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc. please feel free to ask. Oh, and if your name is, by chance, incorrect, it can easily be adjusted just by letting me know. :) Also, for those who have asked, there are still copies of the ULC book, The Many Faces of ULC available.
