Universal Life Church
At our wedding, my father "forgot" me - MY church prefers that "still" married parents of the Bride and Groom walk in together, light the family candles for the unity candle, and then the parents of the groom sit down. The Father of the Bride then escorts MOB to her seat then goes back down the aisle to escort the bride up the aisle.
So this was practiced well at rehearsal- things were going well- the day of the wedding our parents entered, lit the candles- and my IL's sat down- My dad took Mom to her seat and then sat down - several people tried to stage whisper to dad to go get me but dad (who is somewhat HOH couldn't hear them - Finally my BIL who was sitting behind my parents - tapped dad on the shoulder and told him to turn around and look at him- he told dad that he had to go to the back of the church and get me "since that is what people are waiting for" Dad stood up and said (loudly) "OH, I FORGOT!"
He ran down the aisle to the back of the church to "get Me" - I think it is such a classic funny story - that made me laugh so much the next day when my husband told me the story (once we were on the plane to our honeymoon.
The Universal Life Church offers handfasting ceremonies, funeral ceremonies and free minister training.
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 loved watching the continual growth of the seminary.
