UNIVERSAL LIFE CHURCH MAILINGS ARCHIVE - DECEMBER 2008

Even though we're just getting started in October, I'm already looking ahead towards Christmas. I love ChristUniversal Life Churchmas. I really enjoy getting just the right present for someone special to me. I realize that not all of you celebrate Christmas, but even if you celebrate a different holiday or none at all, this is still good information. The SpiritQuest program is now available through book form. If you order the book, you still need to complete the program in order to get your degree (if you haven't already), but it's great reference material and it's much easier to read than printing the pages on the computer and you can carry it with you for reference.

It's also a great bathroom book! lol

The book can be purchased through this link: http://www.lulu.com/content/2039512

(I would strongly suggest passing it to someone who loves you who would be delighted to get you such a wonderful, customized gift.)

As always, I appreciate having you as a member of the ULC Seminary. I do my best to keep things fresh for you all and appreciate all your suggestions, assistance and input.

If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know by writing to amy@ulcseminary.org.

UNIVERSAL LIFE CHURCH MAILINGS ARCHIVE - SEPTEMBER 2007

Hello!

Well, I have some good news and I have some bad news. It's actually the same news, so it's really a matter of perspective. I'm going to be extending the deadline for the Who's Who book at least through the end of September.

The good news part of this is that I'm finding a whole bunch of new ULC ministers to share this information with. I underestimated the amount of time it would take to spread the word. Please put the link information or book information on your websites or in your yahoo groups or other forums. I would love to see this be a huge success, and I really need your help.

The bad news (for me) is that my book printer seems to have gone belly-up, so I need to find a new printer. That's another reason for the change in deadline. If any of you know of any good book printers, I'd love to have the company's contact info.

I also want to have as many people as possible in this book and I've had quite a few people ask me to extend the deadline for financial reasons or time constraints. I want the book to have as many people in it who wish to be a part of it, so I want to do whatever I can to accommodate that. If financial concerns are an issue, I'm happy to spread the payments out for you, so please feel free to ask. You can send several post-dated checks or we can make another arrangement. I would hate to have money stand in the way of your being in the book. As a reminder, the cost for the one page is $50, which includes one page of text, a picture (high resolution) and two copies of the finished book. Extra copies of the finished book are $15.

I have already received quite a few wonderful stories. What I'm finding interesting is that most (if not all -- I haven't read all of them yet) are talking more about their experience with ULC and how it changed their lives, as opposed to the 'horn-tooting' that so many are concerned about.

Please, when you do send your picture, send one with as high a resolution as possible. They will look much better in the book if they are higher resolution. If you sent one that is low resolution, please send me a new one.

So, for now, I'm extending the deadline for another month. I'll extend it again if I have to, but I'd like to get this show on the road. Once I have a substantial number of participants, we'll go to press. Be sure to get your submission in as soon as possible, so you can be sure to be included. And please let me know of anyone else you think qualifies for inclusion in the book. You can add them yourself at www.ulcseminary.org/whoswho.php or just send me their email and I can add them myself.

As for other news, of course we have some. We are launching a new seminary course. The Shamanism Course is back! It's a brand new course, written by a new author. Bishop Pat has written many things for us before and is an excellent author. He is very generously donating this course to the Seminary, which will allow us more money to have more clerical help for the Seminary. Right now, the website upkeep and adding of new programs and materials falls entirely on me. Josh Copeland maintains our forum (and does a great job!) and we have Monica doing the bulk of the orders, with Jon, our cardmaker, taking care of those. Headquarters sends the credentials. But still, I could use some help with the course, the blogs and the RSS feed, and the extra money from the donated course will let me hire Monica to help add new sermons to our weekly sermon page and weekly Sunday School lessons to the new Sunday School Lesson feature as well.

Universal Life ChurchOh, did I mention that we now have a new weekly Sunday School feature? You can go to http://www.ulcseminary.org/sundayschool.php and sign up for this free service. Once a week, we will send you a Sunday School lesson that you can share with your children or your congregation. This is similar to the Religious Sermon feature that I talked about a few weeks ago.

Universal Life ChurchTo see all of the courses we have to offer, go to Seminary Courses, which lists all of the courses. We have a lot of amazing courses, so take a look in case you've missed any of the recent mailings. This is also your last chance to take the Islamic Studies course, as it ends on the first of September. Please sign up and reserve your spot.

I know this one was pretty long, so thanks for hanging in with me!

As always, I appreciate having you as a member of the ULC Seminary. I do my best to keep things fresh for you all and appreciate all your suggestions, assistance and input.

If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know by writing to amy@ulcseminary.org.

UNIVERSAL LIFE CHURCH MAILINGS ARCHIVE - NOVEMBER 2007

Hello!

As most of you know, when you are a 'mover and a shaker', sometimes things get moved and shaken. :) Since so many of you have asked, I might as well make it known -- I'm in the process of a divorce after 12 years of marriage and it all got kicked off at the end of Sept., the same time I'd planned on closing out the entry date for the Who's Who book. Thus my delay. Throughout this transition, my internet was turned off and I was on 'borrowed' internet for over a week. (This means someone's unsecured network that was incredibly slow and kept kicking me off.) I'm finally back online, but there's still something funky about it and I'm still getting kicked off.

For reasons unknown to me, the back-end of my shopping cart had become temporarily inaccessible, so Monica and I weren't able to get into the back-end to check on the status of orders and send out the delivery confirmation. Orders are still being filled, but we had trouble confirming things when you've been writing to ask. Please know that we're not ignoring you -- just having a hard time. It was just fixed today, so we'll be getting caught up soon.

So, to make a short story longer, I'm a bit behind -- just in general. For those of you who have been through it, with young children, you know how it is and I have greatly appreciated all the well wishes that have been coming my way.

You'll also be pleased to note that the book deadline is still open. I took on too many projects at once and have not been as diligent about getting the word out about this project as I should have. We still need more people to join the book project before we can go to press. So if you have been thinking about telling your story, but have been holding off for some reason, now's the time to get in this unique book. Take a few minutes and write down how you became involved with the ULC and what you've done. You can submit payment through the shopping cart. I'm going to do the book even if we don't get the full number of people we want, but I think the book would make a better statement if it were thick with entries.

The holidays are fast approaching so you'll be pleased to see that the Stocking Stuff Special has returned! You can find it here:

http://www.ulcseminary.org/store/product_info.php?products_id=75

It will make someone a terrific Christmas/Holiday gift.

Please check out the new courses on the seminary page. The Mystical Christianity course is wonderful, as well as the Shamanism course. And the Metaphysical Healing is very interesting as well.

The new Miracle of Prayer course is a fantastic course that we've just added some more information about. If you haven't received a sample of this course, I'm sure it will be along shortly.

One other strange little thing: Someone hijacked our main blog. Whoever stole it, somehow changed the name of our blog. I've written google about it, but haven't gotten any response. One way to get their attention is to go to the site and hit the button in the upper lefthand corner that says 'flag'. If you would go there and hit that flag, as well as make a comment in their comment section about it being a stolen blog, that would be appreciated. The stolen blog address is www.ulcseminary.blogspot.com. The 'changed' address is www.ulcseminary2.blogspot.com. Please flag the first and visit the second.

Last, but not least, if you have completed your essay for one of the programs, but have not received your certificate, give me an email and let me know. (Unless it was within the last week.) I am way behind on posting them because of our blog being hijacked, but I have requested all of the degrees, so they should be on their way out. :)

As always, I appreciate having you as a member of the ULC Seminary. I do my best to keep things fresh for you all and appreciate all your suggestions, assistance and input.

If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know by writing to amy@ulcseminary.org.

UNIVERSAL LIFE CHURCH MAILINGS ARCHIVE - JULY 2007

Hello!

We have been having so many exciting and new things happening lately through the Seminary, that I haven't even had a chance to write a new regular newsletter, so I hope you will excuse this simple note.

As you know, we are well on our way with the Who's Who book for the ULC. We have decided to extend the deadline to get your submission in, to August 14th, 2007. As it turns out, I'll be on vacation during the last week of July and first week of August, so I won't be able to process all of the submissions right away anyway. I figured that I might as well extend the deadline. :)

. If you haven't already, please take the time to submit your registration fee and get me your story and picture as soon as possible so I can get a clear idea how many people are interested. I hope to have between 200 and 300 people in it. A hardback book has been requested, but this costs a lot more, so I need more participants to make it a reality.

I'd like to talk again about our new course on Mystical Christianity. It's really fascinating and I think you will enjoy it. You can read a sample of the course at Mystical Christianity . The details for ordering it can be found here: Mystical Christianity

We have also launched a new course called The Miracle of Prayer. This course, designated as the Dr. of Spirituality, is written by Loretta Siani, the author of the Dr. of Metaphysics program. As many of you know, she is an excellent instructor and she has created another wonderful course. Check it out at Dr. of Spirituality.

Another new feature we have is in the Religious Sermon section. If you'd like to receive a new sermon every week by email, sign up for this free service. We have a lot of sermons posted on the site, but not everyone has time to sit online, so we have offered an email alternative. We will soon have that available for the other sermon sections as well.

Soon, I'll also have that option for the Sunday School lessons. I have a lot of lessons waiting to be posted, but I don't always have the time, so I thought I'd upload them as a weekly email to those who are interested in instructing the young in religious and spiritual matters.

As always, I appreciate having you as a member of the ULC Seminary. I do my best to keep things fresh for you all and appreciate all your suggestions, assistance and input.

If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know by writing to amy@ulcseminary.org.
