Universal Life Church Sermons

We hope to educate, enlighten, and inform our ministers. These sermons reflect inspirational teachings from various faiths. As an interfaith church, we strive to find common ground that unites us across any divide.

Please check back every two weeks for a new sermon, and help us promote freedom of thought, freedom of religion, and the mantra that "we are all children of the same universe."
