This Sunday at CCL


Joys of Ministry”

with UCM Reverends and Ministers.

      Congratulations are in order! This Sunday, September 30th, Blanca Chavez and Deborah (Debbie) Winnett are receiving their Universal Church of the Master licentiate (ministerial) certification.
For those of you who receive the CCL Insights, have you ever wondered what the Universal Church of the Master is about? UCM was founded in 1908 as a church in which members are encouraged to develop and exercise their spiritual powers. It is based on the belief of the Divine Father Mother God; humanitarian, democratic ideals. UCM Ministers are dedicated to service for the welfare of ALL through the guidance of Spirit.
UCM discourages adherence to rigid dogmas and tenets, believing that each person must find and travel his/her own path in the Light, and that no single set of fixed rules is applicable to everyone in their spiritual quest.
The following are some of the other ideals and principles necessary for a UCM minister to follow:
The ministry requires mastery of individual spiritual gifts, knowledge and skill, gained through professional education and experience. The final goal is the performance of service with integrity, competence and love.
The principal objective of the ministry is to render service to all humanity, led by Spirit and respect of dignity. Ministers should gain the confidence of parishioners, students and clients, rendering to each a full measure of service, devotion, respect and esteem regardless of race, creed, color or gender.
Ministers shall not knowingly mislead or misrepresent themselves by word, deed or implication, to be other than what they legally are:  UCM Ministers.
Ministers shall forever hold in complete confidence any and all information entrusted to them by any person seeking their help.
Ministers shall constantly strive to improve their knowledge, their skills and their spiritual relationship to God in order to keep abreast of universal changes.
Ministers shall strive always to grow in Spirit, knowledge and wisdom as they evolve towards Oneness with Creator.
Wow, isn’t that fantastic. Now you see why so many of us have chosen UCM as our path in ministry and our life.
Please join us on Sunday as these delightful women move forward into a new spiritual dimension of their lives.

Ministerial Jokes:
A friend was in front of me coming out of church one day, and the preacher was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands. He grabbed my friend by the hand and pulled him aside.

The Pastor said to him, “You need to join the Army of the Lord!”
My friend replied, “I’m already in the Army of the Lord, Pastor.”
Pastor questioned, “How come I don’t see you except at Christmas and Easter?”
He whispered back, “I’m in the secret service.”
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Good News: Mrs. Jones is wild about your sermons. Bad News: Mrs. Jones is also wild about “Honey Boo Boo,” “Beavis and Butthead” and “Texas Chain Saw Massacre.”
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Good News: Church attendance rose dramatically the last three weeks. Bad News: You were on vacation.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
Good News: Your deacons want to send you to the Holy Land. Bad News: They are stalling until the next war.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
When you prepare you sermons on paper, they say that you are just reading off the paper and not hearing from God. But when you DON’T have paper, they say that you were not prepared!
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
My pastor friend put sanitary hot air hand dryers in the rest rooms at his church and after two weeks took them out. I asked him why and he confessed that they worked fine but when he went in there he saw a sign that read, “For a sample of this week’s sermon, push the button.”
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
A bishop visited a church in his diocese. Only three people turned up to hear him peach. He asked the Vicar “Did you give notice of my visit?”
“No” replied the vicar, “but word seems to have got round anyway.”
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
During the last Sunday service that the visiting pastor was to spend at the church he served for some months, his hat was passed around for a goodwill, farewell offering.
When it returned to the pastor, it was empty. The pastor didn’t flinch. He raised the hat to heaven. “I thank you, Lord, that I got my hat back from this congregation.”

Reminder from Reverend April Lussier

September 30, 2012

UCM does not advocate any political party or person.  We do encourage all of our members to be a part of the democracy that we live in by voting their conscious.  In keeping with this belief we are posting a request by Reverend April Lussier for voter registration Sunday. The event is being sponsored by PICO National Network.  

Dear Clergy Colleagues,

The first weekend of our national Voter Registration Sabbath was a great success, and we’ve only just begun! Registration drives will continue in faith communities through the October deadlines in some states.  This Sunday, hundreds of African American congregations will observe Let My People Vote Sunday.

Today is National Voter Registration Day. Across the country, volunteers are hitting the streets to make sure every eligible member of their community has the opportunity to vote. The goal is to prevent what happened in 2008, when 6 million eligible Americans didn’t vote simply because they didn’t have access to registration. We cannot let that happen again in 2012.

I invite you to take a moment today to pay tribute to the giants who walked before us and who walk with us to defend our right to vote. As an African American, I am grateful to my elders and other civil rights activists who fought for the Voting Rights Act of 1965, ensuring my right to vote. We are all indebted to the brave women that organized for decades before the 19th Amendment was adopted in 1920 to give women a voice in elections. Many of our brothers and sisters facing voter suppression laws in Colorado, Pennsylvania and many other states are still fighting for their right to vote freely and without discrimination.

The right to vote is a hard-won and clearly fragile one. So let us honor this precious right by exercising it, and making sure that no one misses their chance.

A Luta Continua,

Rev. Michael-Ray Mathews

Director of Clergy Organizing

PICO National Network

P.S. It’s not too late to register your congregation to participate in Let My People Vote Sunday! Visit here toregister, find teaching and preaching resources, and information about voter suppression.
