Universal Life Church

Universal Life Church Announcements - May 2009
Happy Mother's Day! This month we have a lot of announcements, so please bear with me and read them all.
THE BOOK IS DONE! - Since this is the most exciting thing, I'm going to lead with this. The book is done. I'd like to thank everyone who submitted ceremonies and apologize to anyone whose ceremony I wasn't able to include. It was a difficult decision as to which ceremonies to include and at some point, I had to cut it off.
The book is in its final stages. At this time, we are offering you a 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 more. 

By having the ceremonies of the yellow book in this beautiful hardbound book, you increase your level of professionalism.

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 offering the book at a 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. This price is good for the next month, at which time it'll go up for the next two weeks before the book is ready to be shipped. You can also get the first book at a discounted rate as well, to complete your collection.

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 that we have 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.

Essays from the various programs are at:

NEW COURSE: We have a brand new course, hinted at 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

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.

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.

RSS FEED - The last thing is the RSS feed. 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.

PAYPAL - Since several people have asked, I'll throw it out there that 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.
