Why I'm Now An Ordained Minister

Over the years, I have studied different religions, and there was always one thing missing in each of them.  Each religion would have some things that I agreed with, yet other things that I just could not come to grips with.  So, I would end up taking bits and pieces from each and mixing it to form my own.  But, I felt alone.  I did not feel that I had any one who could understand how I felt and explaining my belief system to others became uncomfortable.  Especially trying to explain it to my parents – who are hard core Christians.

Now, I have nothing against Christianity, per se.  It has many good teachings, as do all religions.  I just cannot get behind a God who, in my mind, condones violence among his followers.  But, I digress…

One day, I was surfing the internet and came across a photo of Stephen Colbert wearing a long red robe.  He seemed to be officiating a wedding.  I was intrigued.  I did not know he was a minister!  This photo led me to the Universal Life Church.

After reading the website and looking over some of the trainings, I was hooked.  This is exactly the thing I had been looking for!
