Eternal spirit, before whom generations rise and pass away, we find that even in the face of death, our words can be those of thanksgiving.
We are thankful for one who shared his/her life with us...One for whom love and family were so important.... whose life was lived with vigor.
For the struggles of life, and for the triumph of character over trial, of courage over difficulty, of faith over sorrow, we give thanks.
God grant us such strength in the memory of our friend that we might be thankful for the gift of life that is given to each of us, and in our hearts, may the loss of ______ be balanced by thanksgiving for the life that was shared with us. Amen.
The Universal Life Church offers handfasting ceremonies, funeral ceremonies and ordination to become an ordained minister.
As a long time member of ULC, Rev. Long created the seminary site to help train our ministers. We also have a huge catalog of Universal Life Church materials. I've been ordained with the Universal Life Church for many years and it's Seminary since the beginning and have enjoyed the new article directory for seminary members.
