I was thinking about taking two courses and was wondering about the degree ID card option. Has anyone found the degree ID cards to be useful? If so, what occassion were they useful?

Thanks

i wouldnt see why you would need or use one, but it might be nice to have.

True it would be nice. I guess I should consider it more of a personal reminder of one's accomplishments instead of an ID.

I kinda think of it like the wallet HS diploma that jostens sells. not good for anything but a nice keepsake.

They actually accepted it as ID? With no picture, or SSN or anything? That's amazing.

Here's an idea... why not put the degree ID cards into one of those clear business card holder pages that go into a 3 ring binder?

That way you can put them into your portfolio binder instead of the actual degrees and save room while still showing your educational accomplishments and adding to your congregation/client's comfort level.

It would help increase the "legitimacy" of the ULC ordination too, if you ran into those kinds of issues.

I still have to fancy what a degree card might be useful for,and why is it nice to keep one. Diversity of thinking and taste is what makes the world, I imagine.

Personally, I carry a ULC card with my title (granted by ULC) and name. All full-sized diplomas and certificates are preserved in a file box.

I do like the idea of a notebook. Putting certificates in document protectors and putting them in a notebook might be a good way to organize. For those that are too large, a "shrunken," full-color copy might work.
Although it probably won't be too soon, I will let you know what happens.
Shalom,

That's a good idea. I know that some people carry it because they talk to their friends about classes they've taken and such and their friends don't believe them, so they whip out their card.

I've never had anyone NOT believe me, but other people have written to me because they had. I put in the new 'marriage certificate' wallet cards because apparently, people ask couples if they are married and they don't believe them sometimes. So now they can whip out their card. I think it's kinda funny. Why wouldn't someone believe you were married if you said you were?

He needs to show people his birth certificate? Do they think he's an alien? Hatched maybe? lol.

I think they are wonderful. When I have completed my first discourse, I intend upon receiving my first card. I have my cert. upon my wall to inspire me daily. The wallet cards are another method of continual inspiration.

If you feel comfortable with the title of doctor, then by all means use it! My wife and I have adopted it but we do not flaunt it around, either. Our business cards just have "Dr." in front of our name with the appropriate suffex. But that is all. I like to think that those of great knowledge really should not have to use a title. But, that is my thinking. timberland pas cher chine timberland pas cher chaussures snapback obey pas cher
