Brother Michael's Notebook

The support to change our name from Universal Life to Universal One has been overwhelmingly positive. This changing of just one word from Life to One is completely voluntary. We want to shed any ties folks may think we have with the non-Christian Universal Life Churches. By using the Universal Life Church name we were attracting too many non-Christians and we are scaring Christians away!

So many non-Christians filled out our request to Become a Minister form and became offended or belligerent when we refused to ordain them. It is mind boggling just how many folks out there just do not read instructions. I remember Sr. Clara and Sr. Colletta who taught 4th grade, Sr. Clara in the AM and Sr. Colletta in the PM, they were relentless with fundamentals. Such fundamentals as for example: always read instructions as so many times in life mistakes are made simply because people do not read instructions, always capitalize the Christian Church, but use the small c for non-Christian churches, or always capitalize our God and write satan with a small s. Sr. Clara and Sr. Colletta must of not had spell check in 4th grade, because with a small s satan does not get past spell check!! Why? Because this is satan's world! LOL Still today I do not care about spell check, I will not capitalize satan, even if it is at the beginning of a sentence.



All existing Ministers if you have yet to be issued a new Universal One Church certificate and/or Minister ID card, you will be issued one at your next annual renewal. ALL credentials whether they say Universal Life Church or Universal One Church are valid. We are continuing both entities, registered with the Secretary of State as Non-Profits. As of May 1st, 2016 we will dissolve the Universal Life Church. However by that time ALL Ministers will have in there possession updated Universal One Church credentials.

This changeover from Universal Life Church to Universal One Church will put asunder any negativity and/or questions concerning the legitimacy and/or adverse reputation or history associated with the Universal Life Church name within people's minds. It was a poor choice in names when we opted to use the Universal Life Church name to begin with, I accept full responsibility and I apologize. Universal One Church is the One Church for Christ, and it is the One Church that started it all in 107AD or I quote one of my favorite's from the Holy Bible: "Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it". The bottom line is I should of went with Universal One to begin with and I did not. It is quite an expense for us to changeover, but it is for the best.

MINISTERS: For a $50.00 set up charge, you can get your very own Minister email address using our Universal One Church domain for example:

Rev.John.Doe@universalonechurch.org
Rev.Jane.Doe@universalonechurch.org

No we have not ordained John or Jane Doe, they are still fugitives. We thought Bonnie and Clyde were bad news, but John and Jane Doe they have a paper trail throughout the world. We shy away from such folks as we try not to ordain celebrities. Yes we have ordained a President, but they tried to impeach him over Monica Lewinsky, so he is no longer considered a celebrity. LOL Seriously this will be available soon. We will use your real name in your email address.

With email ulc@ulcnetwork.com it is still valid, but if you can switch over to brothermichael@universalonechurch.org it would be much appreciated.



With domains, if you have a link on your website? Please change it from http://www.ulcnetwork.com to http://www.universalonechurch.org We have included our new Congregation Affiliation Seal for you to link our new website to.

The Days of Holy Week
By: Dennis Bratcher

Holy Week is the last week of Lent, the week immediately preceding Easter or Resurrection Sunday.  It is observed in many Christian churches as a time to commemorate and enact the suffering (Passion) and death of Jesus through various observances and services of worship. While some church traditions focus specifically on the events of the last week of Jesus’ life, many of the liturgies symbolize larger themes that marked Jesus’ entire ministry. Observances during this week range from daily liturgical services in churches to informal meetings in homes to participate in a Christian version of the Passover Seder.

In Catholic tradition, the conclusion to the week is called the Easter Triduum (a triduum is a space of three days usually accompanying a church festival or holy days that are devoted to special prayer and observance). Some liturgical traditions, such as Lutherans, simply refer to "The Three Days."  The Easter Triduum begins Thursday evening of Holy Week with Eucharist and concludes with evening prayers Easter Sunday.

Increasingly, evangelical churches that have tended to look with suspicion on traditional "High-Church" observances of Holy Week are now realizing the value of Holy Week services, especially on Good Friday (see Low Church and High Church). This has a solid theological basis both in Scripture and in the traditions of the Faith. Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the German theologian who was executed by the Nazis, wrote of the Cost of Discipleship and warned of "cheap grace" that did not take seriously either the gravity of sin or the radical call to servanthood: "When Jesus bids a man come, he bids him come and die."

It is this dimension that is well served by Holy Week observances, as they call us to move behind the joyful celebrations of Palm Sunday and Easter, and focus on the suffering, humiliation, and death that is part of Holy Week. It is important to place the hope of the Resurrection, the promise of newness and life, against the background of death and endings. It is only in walking through the shadows and darkness of Holy Week and Good Friday, only in realizing the horror and magnitude of sin and  its consequences in the world incarnated in the dying Jesus on the cross, only in contemplating the ending and despair that the disciples felt on Holy Saturday, that we can truly understand the light and hope of Sunday morning!

In observing this truth, that new beginnings come from endings, many people are able to draw a parable of their own lives and faith journey from the observances of Holy Week. In providing people with the opportunity to experience this truth in liturgy and symbol, the services become a powerful proclamation of the transformative power of the Gospel, and God at work in the lives of people.

The entire week between Palm Sunday and Holy Saturday is included in Holy Week, and some church traditions have daily services during the week. However, usually only Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday are times of special observance in most churches.


Palm Sunday (or Passion Sunday)

Holy Week begins with the sixth Sunday in Lent.  This Sunday observes the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem that was marked by the crowds who were in Jerusalem for Passover waving palm branches and proclaiming him as the messianic king. The Gospels tell us that Jesus rode into the city on a donkey, enacting the prophecy of Zechariah 9:9, and in so doing emphasized the humility that was to characterize the Kingdom he proclaimed. The irony of his acceptance as the new Davidic King (Mark 11:10) by the crowds who would only five days later cry for his execution should be a sobering reminder of the human tendency to want God on our own terms.

Traditionally, worshippers enact the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem by the waving of palm branches and singing songs of celebration. Sometimes this is accompanied by a processional into the church.  In many churches, children are an integral part of this service since they enjoy processions and activity as a part of worship. This provides a good opportunity to involve them in the worship life of the community of Faith. In many more liturgical churches, children are encouraged to craft palm leaves that were used for the Sunday processional into crosses to help make the connection between the celebration of Palm Sunday and the impending events of Holy Week.



This Sunday is also known as Passion Sunday to commemorate the beginning of Holy Week and Jesus’ final agonizing journey to the cross.  The English word passion comes from a Latin word that means "to suffer," the same word from which we derive the English word patient.

In most Protestant traditions, the liturgical color for The Season of Lent is purple, and that color is used until Easter Sunday. In Catholic tradition (and some others), the colors are changed to Red for Palm Sunday. Red is the color of the church, used for Pentecost as well as remembering the martyrs of the church. Since it symbolizes shed blood, it is also used on Palm Sunday to symbolize the death of Jesus. While most Protestants celebrate the Sunday before Easter as Palm Sunday, in Catholic and other church traditions it is also celebrated as Passion Sunday anticipating the impending death of Jesus. In some Church traditions (Anglican), the church colors are changed to red for the fifth Sunday in Lent, with the last two Sundays in Lent observed as Passiontide.

Increasingly, many churches are incorporating an emphasis on the Passion of Jesus into services on Palm Sunday as a way to balance the celebration of Easter Sunday.  Rather than having the two Sundays both focus on triumph, Passion Sunday is presented as a time to reflect on the suffering and death of Jesus in a Sunday service of worship. This provides an opportunity for people who do not or cannot attend a Good Friday Service to experience the contrast of Jesus’ death and the Resurrection, rather than celebrating the Resurrection in isolation from Jesus’ suffering. However, since Sunday services are always celebrations of the Resurrection of Jesus during the entire year, even an emphasis on the Passion of Jesus on this Sunday should not be mournful or end on a negative note, as do most Good Friday Services (which is the reason Eucharist or Communion is not normally celebrated on Good Friday).


Maundy Thursday, or Holy Thursday

There are a variety of events that are clustered on this last day before Jesus was arrested that are commemorated in various ways in services of worship. These include the last meal together, which was probably a Passover meal, the institution of Eucharist or Communion, the betrayal by Judas (because of the exchange with Jesus at the meal), and Jesus praying in Gethsemane while the disciples fell asleep. Most liturgies, however, focus on the meal and communion as a way to commemorate this day.

During the last few days, Jesus and His disciples had steadily journeyed from Galilee toward Jerusalem. On the sunlight hillsides of Galilee, Jesus was popular, the crowds were friendly and the future was bright. Even his entry into Jerusalem had been marked by a joyous welcome. But in Jerusalem there was a growing darkness as the crowds began to draw back from the man who spoke of commitment and servanthood. There was an ominous tone in the murmuring of the Sadducees and Pharisees who were threatened by the new future Jesus proclaimed.

Even as Jesus and his disciples came together to share this meal, they already stood in the shadow of the cross. It was later that night, after the meal, as Jesus and His disciples were praying in the Garden of Gethsemane, that Jesus was arrested and taken to the house of Caiaphas the High Priest. On Friday He would die.

There is some difference in the chronology of these events between the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) and John’s account (see Synoptic Problem). In the Synoptics, this last meal was a Passover meal, observing the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt when death "passed over" the Hebrew homes as the tenth plague fell upon the Egyptians. Yet, in John’s account the Passover would not be celebrated until the next day. And while the Synoptics recount the institution of Communion (Eucharist) during this final meal, John instead tells us about Jesus’ washing the disciples’ feet as a sign of servanthood.

In any case, this Thursday of Holy Week is remembered as the time Jesus ate a final meal together with the men who had followed him for so long. We do not have to solve these historical questions to remember and celebrate in worship what Jesus did and taught and modeled for us here, what God was doing in Jesus the Christ. And the questions should not shift our attention from the real focus of the story: the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Traditionally in the Christian Church, this day is known as Maundy Thursday. The term Maundy comes from the Latin word mandatum (from which we get our English word mandate), from a verb that means "to give," "to entrust," or "to order." The term is usually translated "commandment," from John's account of this Thursday night.  According to the Fourth Gospel, as Jesus and the Disciples were eating their final meal together before Jesus’ arrest, he washed the disciples' feet to illustrate humility and the spirit of servanthood. After they had finished the meal, as they walked into the night toward Gethsemane, Jesus taught his disciples a "new" commandment that was not really new (John 13:34-35):

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, you also ought to love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.

The colors for Maundy Thursday are usually the colors of Lent, royal purple or red violet. Some traditions, however, use red for Maundy Thursday, the color of the church, in order to identify with the community of disciples that followed Jesus. Along the same line, some use this day to honor the apostles who were commissioned by Jesus to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world.

The sharing of the Eucharist, or sacrament of thanksgiving, on Maundy Thursday is the means by which most Christians observe this day. There is a great variety in exactly how the service is conducted, however. In some churches, it is traditional for the pastor or priest to wash the feet of members of the congregation as part of the service (John 13:3-15). Increasingly, churches are observing some form of the Passover Seder as a setting for the Eucharist of Maundy Thursday (see Introduction to a Christian Seder and Haggadah for a Christian Seder). Some churches simply have a "pot-luck" dinner together concluded with a short time of singing and communion.

In some church traditions all of the altar coverings and decorations are removed after the Eucharist is served on Maundy Thursday. Psalm 22 is sometimes either read or sung while the altar paraments are being removed. Since the altar in these traditions symbolize the Christ, the "stripping of the altar" symbolizes the abandonment of Jesus by his disciples and the stripping of Jesus by the soldiers prior to his crucifixion.  This, like the darkness often incorporated into a Good Friday service, represents the humiliation of Jesus and the consequences of sin as a preparation for the celebration of new life and hope that is to come on Resurrection Day.  Some churches only leave the altar bare until the Good Friday Service, when the normal coverings are replaced with black.

However it is celebrated, the Eucharist of Maundy Thursday is especially tied to the theme of remembering. As Jesus and his disciples followed the instructions in the Torah to remember God’s acts of deliverance in their history as they shared the Passover meal together, so Jesus calls us to remember the new act of deliverance in our history that unfolds on these last days of Holy week (see Remember! A Service of Communion).


Good Friday, or Holy Friday



Friday of Holy Week has been traditionally been called Good Friday or Holy Friday. On this day, the church commemorates Jesus’ arrest (since by Jewish customs of counting days from sundown to sundown it was already Friday), his trial, crucifixion and suffering, death, and burial. Since services on this day are to observe Jesus’ death, and since Eucharist is a celebration, there is traditionally no Communion observed on Good Friday. Also, depending on how the services are conducted on this day, all pictures, statutes, and the cross are covered in mourning black, the chancel and altar coverings are replaced with black, and altar candles are extinguished.  They are left this way through Saturday, but are always replaced with white before sunrise on Sunday.

There are a variety of services of worship for Good Friday, all aimed at allowing worshippers to experience some sense of the pain, humiliation, and ending in the journey to the cross. The traditional Catholic service for Good Friday was held in mid-afternoon to correspond to the final words of Jesus from the cross (around 3 PM, Matt 27:46-50). However, modern schedules have led many churches to move the service to the evening to allow more people to participate. Usually, a Good Friday service is a series of Scripture readings, a short homily, and a time of meditation and prayer.  One traditional use of Scripture is to base the homily or devotional on the Seven Last Words of Jesus as recorded in the Gospel traditions.

Father, forgive them . . . (Luke 23:34)
This day you will be with me in paradise (Luke 23:43)
Woman, behold your son . . .(John 19:26-27)
My God, my God . . . (Matthew 27:46, Mark 15:34)
I thirst.  (John 19:28)
It is finished! (John 19:30)
Father into your hands . . . (Luke 23:46)

Some churches use the Stations of the Cross as part of the Good Friday Service. This service uses paintings or banners to represent various scenes from Jesus’ betrayal, arrest, trial, and death, and the worshippers move to the various stations to sing hymns or pray as the story is told . There is a great variety in how this service is conducted, and various traditions use different numbers of stations to tell the story (see The Fourteen Stations of the Cross).

Another common service for Good Friday is Tenebrae (Latin for "shadows" or "darkness"). Sometimes this term is applied generally to all church services on the last three days of Holy week. More specifically, however, it is used of the Service of Darkness or Service of Shadows, usually held in the evening of Good Friday. Again, there are varieties of this service, but it is usually characterized by a series of Scripture readings and meditation done in stages while lights and/or candles are gradually extinguished to symbolize the growing darkness not only of Jesus’ death but of hopelessness in the world without God. The service ends in darkness, sometimes with a final candle, the Christ candle, carried out of the sanctuary, symbolizing the death of Jesus. Often the service concludes with a loud noise symbolizing the closing of Jesus’ tomb (see The Empty Tomb). The worshippers then leave in silence to wait.

Some churches do observe communion on Good Friday. However, traditionally Eucharist is not served on Good Friday since it is a celebration of thanksgiving.  Good Friday is not a day of celebration but of mourning, both for the death of Jesus and for the sins of the world that his death represents. Yet, although Friday is a solemn time, it is not without its own joy. For while it is important to place the Resurrection against the darkness of Good Friday, likewise the somberness of Good Friday should always be seen with the hope of Resurrection Sunday. As the well- known sermon title vividly illustrates: "It’s Friday.  But Sunday’s a’comin’!"
Holy Saturday

This is the seventh day of the week, the day Jesus rested in the tomb. In the first three Gospel accounts this was the Jewish Sabbath, which provided appropriate symbolism of the seventh day rest. While some church traditions continue daily services on Saturday, there is no communion served on this day.

Some traditions suspend services and Scripture readings during the day on Saturday, to be resumed at the Easter Vigil after sundown Saturday. It is traditionally a day of quiet meditation as Christians contemplate the darkness of a world without a future and without hope apart from God and his grace.

It is also a time to remember family and the faithful who have died as we await the resurrection, or to honor the martyrs who have given their lives for the cause of Christ in the world.  While Good Friday is a traditional day of fasting, some also fast on Saturday as the climax of the season of Lent.  An ancient tradition dating to the first centuries of the church calls for no food of any kind to be eaten on Holy Saturday, or for 40 hours before sunrise on Sunday.  However it is observed, Holy Saturday has traditionally been a time of reflection and waiting, the time of weeping that lasts for the night while awaiting the joy that comes in the morning (Psa 30:5).

"A vocation is a fruit that ripens in a well cultivated field of mutual love that becomes mutual service, in the context of an authentic ecclesial life.

And while dreaming comes easy to us, we must never forget that it takes strength, dedication, and courageous action to bring that dream to life."

  Major Announcement



Brother Michael's Notebook

The Universal Life Church World Headquarters is a Non-Denominational Church, we are not tied to anyone sect within the Christian faith. However, we do have the authority to ordain Independent Catholic Ministers. We are not Roman Catholic, but since I possess Lineage and Succession so do you. What does this mean? For those of you who wish to provide Marriages within the Rite of the Roman Catholic Church, you are able to do so. However to do so you must be appointed a Priest by us and in addition you must have on file a Church Charter or Congregational Affiliation. We have more information about providing couples the opportunity of having their marriage performed within the Rite of The Roman Catholic Church available upon request. However offering these marriages have caused for us an issue.

Over the past five years I have been strongly opposed to changing our name. As you may or may not know we receive a great deal of negative publicity, because folks assume we are affiliated with the Kirby Hensley spun Universal Life Churches. Hensley by his own admission was a criminal, a conman. He also proclaimed himself to be the Modesto Messiah, the second coming. These other Universal Life Churches ordain followers of satan, atheists, pagans and other radicals to what we in the Christian Faith hold dear and that is the sacrament of ordination and/or holy orders. The vow of ordination is just as important if not more important than the vow of marriage. Plus the great deal of good that is being done by our ministers is being overshadowed because of this abomination being perpetrated by these Hensley spun Universal Life Churches. We need to make a change! We need to get out from under the reputation and public perception of these entities. We need our own brand, giving to us the opportunity to be judged on our own merits rather than being adjudicated guilty based on our association just because we have a similar name to this unscrupulous criminal as proclaimed by Hensley himself.

Recently these Hensley spun churches are receiving a ton of negative feedback from the media and I can go on and on, but just for example:



Oklahoma Bans Atheist Marriages In Hopes Of Preventing Gay Ones
 
Second, pretty much anyone can be ordained as a minister in a matter of minutes, through the Universal Life Church, and be able to marry people.

Minnesota county will issue permits for atheist weddings
 
“It is absurd to give (a preferred position to) the Church of Satan, whose ... powers derive from having sex with Satan, and the Universal Life Church.

Inside the Universal Life Church, the Internet's one true ...
 
Dec 14, 2014 - The Kernel ... I first heard of the Universal Life Church over a decade prior. In high ... My plan of joining the Universal Life Church stopped there


It is not being said that it is mandatory, however I have had lengthy discussions with several prominent individuals within the Roman Catholic Church and it is being strongly suggested that we change our name.

We have discussed this many times and I have rejected and refused to hear anything to do with changing our name. However, after further consideration, I believe now, we must do what is in the best interest of this Church. We cannot continue like this, we are a Christian Church. We are dragging the name of Jesus Christ through the mud. Mudslinging between these ULC's, mudslinging by the media and etc. I have been stubborn and pigheaded, I know this is going to cost mega bucks, but I believe now is the time to change our name.

We are strong enough to do this, but we need for you to stick with us during the process, we need your support monetarily and I ask of you to have faith in my leadership. This has not been a rash decision, it is going to take many months of transitioning, but the process has begun. The Universal Life Church website will remain for at least another year or two. However our main websites will be for the Universal One Church at:

http://www.universalonechurch.org
http://www.universalonechurch.com
http://www.universalonechurch.net

Email: brothermichael@universalonechurch.org

Your Ministry Credentials will be updated on your annual renewal date. Since both the Universal Life Church World Headquarters of Boca Raton, FL. and the Universal One Church of Carrabelle, FL. remain in business, your Ministry Credentials are most certainly valid even if they have not been updated to reflect the name change.

Only one word will change, yet this one word will make all the difference in the world. It will help in recruiting as will it help in the public perception and acceptance with how they view your credibility as a minister. 



Ten Quotes on New Beginnings and Change

1. “We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.” ― C. JoyBell C.


2. “Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there's a big disappointment, we don't know if that's the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don't know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don't know.” ― Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart: Heart Advice for Difficult Times


3. “No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!” ― C. JoyBell C.


4. “The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become - because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be. . .It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.” ― C.S. Lewis


5. “Often times God demonstrates His faithfulness in adversity by providing for us what we need to survive. He does not change our painful circumstances. He sustains us through them.” ~ Charles Stanley


6. “You can't stop the future
You can't rewind the past
The only way to learn the secret
...is to press play.”
― Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why


7. “Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don't.” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free


8. “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” ― Mahatma Gandhi


9. “Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” ― Apple Inc.


10. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” ― Margaret Mead


Quick Note about Lent and Easter


During Lent when I was growing up as a child as a family we gave up meat on Fridays. My Father would take the family out on each Friday of Lent for a fish fry, usually at one of the local parishes in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It was great fish, usually Icelandic Cod in a beer batter and I think my favorite was St. Josephs on 122nd and Center Street. 


Today I have fallen away from this tradition with exception to Good Friday, I will not eat meat on Good Friday. Christ fasted for 40 days in the desert so we as Christians look to make sacrifices during Lent and not eating meet on Fridays is only one of many sacrifices one can undertake.

Lent, is the period of prayer and fasting in preparation for Easter, it is 40 days long, but there are 46 days between Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent and Easter. So how are the 40 days of Lent calculated? (Don't worry your math is not that bad, there are 46 days not 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday) Let me explain:

"The 40 days of Lent" has always been more of a metaphor than a literal count. Over the course of history the season of preparation for Easter Sunday has ranged from one day (in the first century) to 44 (today in the Roman church). Officially since 1970, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sunset on Holy Thursday.

Already at the Council of Nicea in 325 the bishops spoke of the quadragesima paschae (Latin for “40 days before Easter”) as the well-established custom. At that time Lent began on the sixth Sunday before Easter and ended at dusk on Holy Thursday—40 days. But the council also forbade fasting, kneeling, and any other acts of sorrow and penance on Sundays, even in Lent. So only 34 of the 40 days were for fasting.

Since Jesus fasted and prayed for 40 days after his Baptism, Christians in the fifth century wanted literally 40 days of penance before Easter. The first step was to add Good Friday and Holy Saturday, the “paschal fast,” to make 36 fasting days.

The second step occurred over the course of the next few centuries in Rome. In addition to baptizing new Christians at Easter, the practice of welcoming back on Holy Thursday those who were baptized but who had committed serious sins became popular. Just as those to be baptized entered into final and intense preparation during Lent, those to be reconciled were expected to do likewise. But the first day of Lent—a Sunday—was already full, with Eucharist, a penitential procession through the city, and the rite of election for those to be baptized.

So those to be reconciled on Holy Thursday gathered on the Wednesday before the first Sunday of Lent. Wednesday (along with Friday) was already a day of fasting throughout the year, so it was appropriate to gather the penitents on that day. Borrowing a sacred sign from the scriptures, the bishop sprinkled ashes on the heads of the penitents, which they wore (without washing) until Holy Thursday as a sign of their sorrow.

This sacred sign was so attractive that even those who were not in a state of serious sin began to ask for ashes on the Wednesday before Lent. By the 11th century the pope recommended to all the bishops that ashes be distributed to anyone who sought them on that day, which became, of course, Ash Wednesday.

Here then, were four more days of fasting and penance: Ash Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday before the first Sunday of Lent, bringing the total to 40. So today, while the season of Lent (Ash Wednesday to Holy Thursday) is technically 44 days, the number of days for penance and fasting before Easter is still 40: 44 days minus 6 Sundays equals 38, plus Good Friday and Holy Saturday equals 40

Brother Michael's Notebook

You may be asking why did I publish an actual copy of my medical records, specifically my birth history? Because I wanted to prove to you I was born with a calling. In 1960 premature babies under 3lbs 4oz had less than a 25% survival rate. 75% plus of preemies at or under 3lbs 4oz's died at birth. The two months I spent in the hospital were met with a few obstacles, I flat lined a few times, but on December 1st, 1960 I was discharged at 5lbs 9oz's. Despite a few disabilities, I lived a normal childhood and I have never used my disabilities as a crutch. I could get disability tomorrow, but I choose not too. My survival against the odds was at God's will. God made me a survivor to enable me to reach my destiny, to fulfill a calling. There was a reason for everything, including why God chose for me the family that he wanted to raise me. If I can help you fulfill your calling, give to me the opportunity to do so.  Please Remember satan is calling you too. Make sure the pathway you follow is to fulfill our Lord's calling and not that of satans. Fill out our "Become a Minister" form today.

It appears the other non-Christian Universal Life Churches are sparring with each other again, with a few words being directed our way as well. Wherefore, I want to take the opportunity to touch on the mudslinging by the Kirby Hensley spun Universal Life Churches. 


They would make a great Jerry Springer show!

What kind of behavior do you expect from a church who claims to have a founder other than Jesus Christ and whom self proclaimed himself to be the Second Coming or as he referred to himself as the Modesto Messiah. You have to consider the source of idiocies being spewed. 


Only EVIL would claim to be the founder of the Church.
 
Matthew 16:18: "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock 
 I will build my Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."


With that said we are a Christian Church founded by our Lord Jesus Christ. Some days we may feel like the only egg in the basket, but remember as Christians - We believe in biblical principle. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," commonly known as "The Golden Rule," and is indeed a biblical principle. Luke 6:31 records Jesus saying, “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

Churches especially, led by their Pastor or Shepherd are to lead by example. Enough said!!!

Last week I spoke of the symbolism of the egg, this week I wish to talk about the cross. The emblem of the cross is seen all over the world in the display of church steeples, wall fixtures and crucifixes worn around people’s necks. However, many people do not know the real meaning of the symbolism of the cross and what it means to those who look to the event of Christ’s death on the cross and His resurrection for their salvation. The cross is the greatest symbol of love that was ever shown to this world. It speaks of a perfectly innocent man, who was beaten, brutally tortured in one of the worst imaginable ways possible, with a world that spit in His face. We are just as guilty of crucifying our Lord as the people who actually did it because we have sinned and it was for sin He was crucified.




Anyone who would call God unloving for sending people to hell, has never really understood the cross. We are the ones who chose to sin! Yet, God in His great mercy, made a glorious way out of the inevitable result of our sin for us. He took it upon Himself, and it cost Him more than we can imagine – His Beloved Son. God put all of the sins of the whole world upon Him and punished Him in our place. This is a profound mystery, but it is the central message of the Gospel – that God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son that whosoever would believe in Him wouldn’t die in their sins, but could inherit eternal life through faith in Him (John 3:16). 1 Peter 2:24 says Jesus bore our sins in His body, not in His spirit. He is the eternal and sinless Holy Spirit. Jesus did not die spiritually. The Scripture in 2 Corinthians 5:21 which says, “For he hath made Him to be sin for us who knew no sin…” means He was made to be a “sin offering” for us, not that He literally became sin.

However, if that was all that took place, the story would have a very bitter ring to it indeed. Preaching just the death of Jesus is only half the message. The Gospel (The Good News) is that Jesus is alive today!

Memory Loss Associated with Alzheimer’s Reversed for First Time

Since it was first described over 100 years ago, Alzheimer’s disease has been without an effective treatment. That may finally be about to change.

In the first, small study of a novel, personalized and holistic program to reverse memory loss, nine of 10 participants who had problems with memory and disorientation displayed marked improvement in their memories beginning within three to six months.

Among the ten patients with memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease, six patients had discontinued working or had been struggling at their jobs at the time they joined the study; all were able to return to their jobs or continue working with improved performance, and their improvements have been sustained.

It is the first study to suggest that memory loss in patients may be reversed — and improvement sustained — using a complex, 36-point therapeutic program that involves comprehensive diet changes, brain stimulation, exercise, sleep optimization, specific pharmaceuticals and vitamins, and multiple additional steps that affect brain chemistry.  The patient in treatment the longest has been receiving the therapy for two-and-a-half years.

The study was conducted by Dr. Dale Bredesen of UCLA’s Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, with the findings published in the October 2014 online edition of the journal Aging.

Bredesen said the findings are “very encouraging,” but he added that the results are anecdotal, and a more extensive, controlled clinical trial is needed.


No single drug has been found to stop or even slow the progression of Alzheimer’s, and drugs have only had modest effects on symptoms. “In the past decade alone, hundreds of clinical trials have been conducted for Alzheimer’s, without success, at an aggregate cost of over $1 billion,” said Bredesen, who is a Professor of Neurology at both UCLA and the Buck Institute.

Although other chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and HIV have been improved through the use of combination therapies, comprehensive combination therapies have not been explored for Alzheimer’s and other memory disorders. However, over the past few decades, genetic and biochemical research has revealed an extensive network of molecular interactions involved in the development of Alzheimer’s.

“That suggested that a broader-based therapeutic approach, rather than a single drug that aims at a single target, may be feasible and potentially more effective for the treatment of cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s,” Bredesen said.

It’s possible that addressing multiple targets that may contribute to Alzheimer’s may be successful even when each target is affected in a relatively modest way, “with effects being additive, or even synergistic.”

The uniform failure of drug trials in Alzheimer’s influenced Bredesen’s desire to better understand the fundamental nature of the disease. His laboratory has found evidence that Alzheimer’s stems from an imbalance in nerve cell signaling. In the normal brain, specific signals foster nerve connections and memory making, while balancing signals support memory loss, allowing irrelevant information to be forgotten. But in people with Alzheimer’s, the balance of these opposing signals is disturbed, nerve connections are suppressed and memories are lost.

That finding is contrary to the popular belief that Alzheimer’s is caused by the accumulation of sticky plaques in the brain. Bredesen believes the amyloid beta peptide, the source of the plaques, has a normal function in the brain, as part of a larger set of molecules that promote signals that cause nerve connections to lapse. Thus, the increase in the peptide that occurs in Alzheimer’s shifts the balance in favor of memory loss.




Bredesen therefore thought that, rather than a single targeted agent, the solution might be a multiple-component system approach, in line with the approach for other chronic illnesses.

“The existing Alzheimer’s drugs affect a single target, but Alzheimer’s disease is more complex. Imagine having a roof with 36 holes in it, and your drug patched one hole very well,” he said. “The drug may have worked, and a single hole may have been fixed, but you still have 35 other leaks, and so the underlying process may not be affected much.”

Bredesen’s approach is personalized to the patient and may include:

  • eliminating all simple carbohydrates, gluten and processed food from her diet, and eating more vegetables, fruits and non-farmed fish 
  • meditating twice a day and beginning yoga to reduce stress 
  • sleeping seven to eight hours per night, up from four to five 
  • taking melatonin, methylcobalamin, vitamin D3, fish oil and coenzyme Q10 each day 
  • optimizing oral hygiene using an electric flosser and electric toothbrush 
  • reinstating hormone replacement therapy, which had previously been discontinued 
  • fasting for a minimum of 12 hours between dinner and breakfast, and for a minimum of three hours between dinner and bedtime 
  • exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes, four to six days per week

Bredesen said the program’s downsides are its complexity and that the burden falls on patients and caregivers to follow it. In the study, none of the patients was able to stick to the entire protocol. Their most common complaints were the diet and lifestyle changes, and having to take multiple pills each day. One patient who had been diagnosed with late stage Alzheimer’s did not improve.

The good news, though, said Bredesen, are the side effects: “It is noteworthy that the major side effects of this therapeutic system are improved health and an improved body mass index, a stark contrast to the side effects of many drugs.”

The results suggest that memory loss may be reversed and improvement sustained with the therapeutic program, but Bredesen cautioned that the results need to be replicated.

“The current, anecdotal results require a larger trial, not only to confirm or refute the results reported here, but also to address key questions raised, such as the degree of improvement that can be achieved routinely, how late in the course of cognitive decline reversal can be effected, whether such an approach may be effective in patients with familial Alzheimer’s disease, and last, how long improvement can be sustained,” he said.
