"The Universal One Church ordains men and/or women from throughout the world to serve in all facets of Christian Ministry. All 50 States and more countries accept our ordination than any other."
It has been a rough past two weeks for our Universal One Church family. One of our full time ministers was diagnosed with cancer, another passed away very unexpectedly during a minor, routine surgical procedure. I hope this week's newsletter doesn't bore you, yet I have to write this, it is my way of grieving and to celebrate the life of Reverend Josephine B. Smith. I spoke with her 24 year old daughter last night on the telephone. I hope I didn't do more harm than good as we both were in tears. I had no idea how fantastic an individual Josephine B. Smith was. I knew she was committed to Christ and was one of our more active ministers. But I did not know everything.
About a year ago Rev. Josephine moved from Hinesville, Georgia to Omaha, NE. She never told me why with exception to the fact she needed to do it for financial reasons. Unknown to me at the time, Reverend Josephine B. Smith in addition to her ministerial work, was caring for her four nieces and nephews, ages 16, 14, 13 and 10. She was caring for them because her sister passed away from lupus. There was no father in their lives, as the father to this day is unknown.
Yours in Christ!

"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. No vocation is born of itself or lives for itself. A vocation flows from the heart of God and blossoms in the good soil of faithful people, in the experience of fraternal love. We are designed with a dreaming brain and a hopeful spirit; it is our nature to envision the life of our dreams. 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."
