Universal Life Church Sermons

By sharing thoughts and ideas from all across the religious and spiritual spectrum, we hope to educate, enlighten, and inform our ministers. As an interfaith church, we strive to find common ground that unites us across any divide. The sermons posted below draw from the inspirational teachings of a wide variety of faiths and belief systems.

However, there are so many sermon topics worthy of discussion, and we simply don’t have the resources to cover them all. Therefore, we'd like to invite our ministers to contribute to this growing forum of ideas.

If there is a topic which interests you, and that you think others would enjoy reading about, we encourage you to write your own sermon and submit it to us! To do this, please email sermons@themonastery.org. All submitted sermons will be considered for publication. If you’re interested in submitting something but need help getting started, we offer some helpful tips on how to write a sermon.
