Stars have always helped me to get things into perspective . . . I tried to let the starlight heal something deep in me that hurt.
—Madeleine L’Engle

For a long time, people have used stars to find their way in the dark. Many a lost soul has been guided by the North Star or the Big Dipper.

If we watch the sky at night, we can see thousands of twinkling stars. They are our friends. They remind us how small we are. They remind us of the vastness of the universe, of the power and beauty that surround us.

Starlight in the sky, or reflected on a lake, can comfort us when we hurt. With safe and open arms, nature accepts our sorrow, no matter how we express it. Starlight, like all of nature, reflects a light that comes from way beyond us. It is that light that heals us in a deep and quiet way.

How has nature comforted me when I am troubled?

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, Exodus 23:20-23

20 ‘Look, I am sending an angel to precede you, to guard you as you go and bring you to the place that I have prepared.

21 Revere him and obey what he says. Do not defy him: he will not forgive any wrong-doing on your part, for my name is in him.

22 If, however, you obey what he says and do whatever I order, I shall be an enemy to your enemies and a foe to your foes.

23 My angel will precede you and lead you to the home of the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivites and the Jebusites, whom I shall exterminate.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 91:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 10-11

1 You who live in the secret place of Elyon, spend your nights in the shelter of Shaddai,

2 saying to Yahweh, ‘My refuge, my fortress, my God in whom I trust!’

3 He rescues you from the snare of the fowler set on destruction;

4 he covers you with his pinions, you find shelter under his wings. His constancy is shield and protection.

5 You need not fear the terrors of night, the arrow that flies in the daytime,

6 the plague that stalks in the darkness, the scourge that wreaks havoc at high noon.

10 No disaster can overtake you, no plague come near your tent;

11 he has given his angels orders about you to guard you wherever you go.

Gospel, Matthew 18:1-5, 10

1 At this time the disciples came to Jesus and said, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’

2 So he called a little child to him whom he set among them.

3 Then he said, ‘In truth I tell you, unless you change and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.

4 And so, the one who makes himself as little as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.

5 ‘Anyone who welcomes one little child like this in my name welcomes me.

10 ‘See that you never despise any of these little ones, for I tell you that their angels in heaven are continually in the presence of my Father in heaven.

Perhaps nature is our best assurance of immortality.
—Eleanor Roosevelt

Everything in nature contributes to something else – like the hundred-year-old tree that stood tall until a wind storm. The protection it gave to thousands of birds and squirrels it now gives to insects and fungi. As it slowly decays, it nourishes the ground, and from the enriched soil grows several other trees. We human beings are part of this eternal cycle, our ideas and actions enriching those around us and influencing generations yet to come. Being part of this vast plan gives us comfort, and faith that everything that happens is meant to be. Our hearts fill with joy with the knowledge that we are needed; just as every tree is needed.

How do I fit into nature’s plan today?

Daily Bible Readings From The Universal Life Church World Headquarters

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, Job 9:1-12, 14-16

1 Job spoke next. He said:

2 Indeed, I know it is as you say: how could anyone claim to be upright before God?

3 Anyone trying to argue matters with him, could not give him one answer in a thousand.

4 Among the wisest and the hardiest, who then can successfully defy him?

5 He moves the mountains, though they do not know it; he throws them down when he is angry.

6 He shakes the earth, and moves it from its place, making all its pillars tremble.

7 The sun, at his command, forbears to rise, and on the stars he sets a seal.

8 He and no other has stretched out the heavens and trampled on the back of the Sea.

9 He has made the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the Mansions of the South.

10 The works he does are great and unfathomable, and his marvels cannot be counted.

11 If he passes me, I do not see him; he slips by, imperceptible to me.

12 If he snatches his prey, who is going to stop him or dare to ask, ‘What are you doing?’

14 And here am I, proposing to defend myself and select my arguments against him!

15 Even if I am upright, what point is there in answering him? I can only plead for mercy with my judge!

16 And if he deigned to answer my citation, I cannot believe he would listen to what I said,

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 88:10-11, 12-13, 14-15

10 Do you work wonders for the dead, can shadows rise up to praise you?Pause

11 Do they speak in the grave of your faithful love, of your constancy in the place of perdition?

12 Are your wonders known in the darkness, your saving justice in the land of oblivion?

13 But, for my part, I cry to you, Yahweh, every morning my prayer comes before you;

14 why, Yahweh, do you rebuff me, turn your face away from me?

15 Wretched and close to death since childhood, I have borne your terrors — I am finished!

Gospel, Luke 9:57-62

57 As they travelled along they met a man on the road who said to him, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’

58 Jesus answered, ‘Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of man has nowhere to lay his head.’

59 Another to whom he said, ‘Follow me,’ replied, ‘Let me go and bury my father first.’

60 But he answered, ‘Leave the dead to bury their dead; your duty is to go and spread the news of the kingdom of God.’

61 Another said, ‘I will follow you, sir, but first let me go and say good — bye to my people at home.’

62 Jesus said to him, ‘Once the hand is laid on the plough, no one who looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.’

The house, the stars, the desert–what gives them their beauty is something that is invisible.
—Antoine de Saint Exupery

What makes our home special? Is it the shape of it, or whether or not we have carpeting? Probably not.

More likely, what makes us love a place is how we feel when we are there. Home is the familiarity of pleasant smells, activities, and special people.

And when we are caught by the beauty of the stars, isn’t it something that happens inside us – the breathtaking feeling of joy that is so hard to describe? The beauty of a day or a special person in our lives cannot be captured, but it can fill and warm our hearts.

Can I measure beauty today by what I feel inside?

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, Job 3:1-3, 11-17, 20-23

1 In the end it was Job who broke the silence and cursed the day of his birth.

2 This is what he said:

3 Perish the day on which I was born and the night that told of a boy conceived.

11 Why was I not still-born, or why did I not perish as I left the womb?

12 Why were there knees to receive me, breasts for me to suck?

13 Now I should be lying in peace, wrapped in a restful slumber,

14 with the kings and high viziers of earth who have built their dwellings in desolate places,

15 or with princes who have quantities of gold and silver cramming their tombs;

16 or, put away like an abortive child, I should not have existed, like little ones that never see the light.

17 Down there, the wicked bustle no more, there the weary rest.

20 Why give light to a man of grief? Why give life to those bitter of heart,

21 who long for a death that never comes, and hunt for it more than for buried treasure?

22 They would be glad to see the grave-mound and shout with joy if they reached the tomb.

23 Why give light to one who does not see his way, whom God shuts in all alone?

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 88:2-3, 4-5, 6, 7-8

2 may my prayer reach your presence, hear my cry for help.

3 For I am filled with misery, my life is on the brink of Sheol;

4 already numbered among those who sink into oblivion, I am as one bereft of strength,

5 left alone among the dead, like the slaughtered lying in the grave, whom you remember no more, cut off as they are from your protection.

6 You have plunged me to the bottom of the grave, in the darkness, in the depths;

7 weighted down by your anger, kept low by your waves.Pause

8 You have deprived me of my friends, made me repulsive to them, imprisoned, with no escape;

Gospel, Luke 9:51-56

51 Now it happened that as the time drew near for him to be taken up, he resolutely turned his face towards Jerusalem

52 and sent messengers ahead of him. These set out, and they went into a Samaritan village to make preparations for him,

53 but the people would not receive him because he was making for Jerusalem.

54 Seeing this, the disciples James and John said, ‘Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to burn them up?’

55 But he turned and rebuked them,

56 and they went on to another village.

When people envy me I think, Oh God, don’t envy me, I have my own pains.
—Barbra Streisand

A forest is full of many different kinds of trees–they are all sizes and shapes and shades of color. It is hard to imagine a pine tree wishing it was an oak. Or a fir tree envying the birch its white bark. Instead, each tree catches raindrops and reflects the sunshine in its own way.

We often find ourselves envying someone else. We think they have more money or more friends. We see them as better looking or luckier in some way than we are.

It is so easy to overlook our own gifts when we do this. We get fooled by what looks good and forget that all human beings have some weaknesses and pain, just like we do. Like the trees in the forest, we each have our own unique beauty and talents to offer. If we believe in ourselves, rather than envy those around us, we will grow green and tall in our own way.

What qualities do I have that someone might envy?

Daily Bible Readings From The Universal Life Church World Headquarters

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, Revelation 12:7-12

7 And now war broke out in heaven, when Michael with his angels attacked the dragon. The dragon fought back with his angels,

8 but they were defeated and driven out of heaven.

9 The great dragon, the primeval serpent, known as the devil or Satan, who had led all the world astray, was hurled down to the earth and his angels were hurled down with him.

10 Then I heard a voice shout from heaven, ‘Salvation and power and empire for ever have been won by our God, and all authority for his Christ, now that the accuser, who accused our brothers day and night before our God, has been brought down.

11 They have triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word to which they bore witness, because even in the face of death they did not cling to life.

12 So let the heavens rejoice and all who live there; but for you, earth and sea, disaster is coming — because the devil has gone down to you in a rage, knowing that he has little time left.’

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 138:1-2, 2-3, 4-5

1 [Of David] I thank you, Yahweh, with all my heart, for you have listened to the cry I uttered. In the presence of angels I sing to you,

2 I bow down before your holy Temple. I praise your name for your faithful love and your constancy; your promises surpass even your fame.

3 You heard me on the day when I called, and you gave new strength to my heart.

4 All the kings of the earth give thanks to you, Yahweh, when they hear the promises you make;

5 they sing of Yahweh’s ways, ‘Great is the glory of Yahweh!’

Gospel, John 1:47-51

47 When Jesus saw Nathanael coming he said of him, ‘There, truly, is an Israelite in whom there is no deception.’

48 Nathanael asked, ‘How do you know me?’ Jesus replied, ‘Before Philip came to call you, I saw you under the fig tree.’

49 Nathanael answered, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God, you are the king of Israel.’

50 Jesus replied, ‘You believe that just because I said: I saw you under the fig tree. You are going to see greater things than that.’

51 And then he added, ‘In all truth I tell you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending over the Son of man.’

There is no hope of joy except in human relations.
—Antoine de Saint Exupery

It is hard to imagine being really joyful and excited without our family and friends. We can imagine a birthday party with no one but us attending. Even if we got many gifts, we would feel empty if there were no one around with whom to share our excitement.

Our joy comes from each other. Even the hard times furnish us with wonderful memories for later in life. We share the good and the bad, and the rewards of both. When our lives together seem too difficult, when it’s too hard to share, too crowded to think, when there are too many disagreements, we can find comfort by looking at one another once again and seeing all the ways we are truly alike, and what we share every moment that we sometimes take for granted–our food, our thoughts, the very air we breathe.

What are the things we share right now?

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, Ecclesiastes 3:1-11

1 There is a season for everything, a time for every occupation under heaven:

2 A time for giving birth, a time for dying; a time for planting, a time for uprooting what has been planted.

3 A time for killing, a time for healing; a time for knocking down, a time for building.

4 A time for tears, a time for laughter; a time for mourning, a time for dancing.

5 A time for throwing stones away, a time for gathering them; a time for embracing, a time to refrain from embracing.

6 A time for searching, a time for losing; a time for keeping, a time for discarding.

7 A time for tearing, a time for sewing; a time for keeping silent, a time for speaking.

8 A time for loving, a time for hating; a time for war, a time for peace.

9 What do people gain from the efforts they make?

10 I contemplate the task that God gives humanity to labour at.

11 All that he does is apt for its time; but although he has given us an awareness of the passage of time, we can grasp neither the beginning nor the end of what God does.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 144:1-2, 3-4

1 [Of David] Blessed be Yahweh, my rock, who trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle,

2 my faithful love, my bastion, my citadel, my Saviour; I shelter behind him, my shield, he makes the peoples submit to me.

3 Yahweh, what is a human being for you to notice, a child of Adam for you to think about?

4 Human life, a mere puff of wind, days as fleeting as a shadow.

Gospel, Luke 9:18-22

18 Now it happened that he was praying alone, and his disciples came to him and he put this question to them, ‘Who do the crowds say I am?’

19 And they answered, ‘Some say John the Baptist; others Elijah; others again one of the ancient prophets come back to life.’

20 ‘But you,’ he said to them, ‘who do you say I am?’ It was Peter who spoke up. ‘The Christ of God,’ he said.

21 But he gave them strict orders and charged them not to say this to anyone.

22 He said, ‘The Son of man is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.’

Things don’t turn up in this world until somebody turns them up.
—James A. Garfield

We could learn from the bears in the woods how to turn up opportunities. To nourish themselves, they turn over logs and stumps to get insects. When they smell honey, they will climb a tree after it, and when they see berries they will move branches aside to get at them.

Like the bears, we need to turn up things for ourselves. Perhaps we can enter a drawing or writing contest. Maybe we can try out for a team sport or the orchestra. By doing this, we take risks, which foster our growth and build confidence, and we turn our lives into fulfilling adventures.

Why wait for opportunity to knock when we can knock at opportunity’s door. Whatever our interests, finding ways to enjoy them can make the most out of the opportunities around us.

What opportunities are available to me today?

4 A generation goes, a generation comes, yet the earth stands firm for ever.

5 The sun rises, the sun sets; then to its place it speeds and there it rises.

6 Southward goes the wind, then turns to the north; it turns and turns again; then back to its circling goes the wind.

7 Into the sea go all the rivers, and yet the sea is never filled, and still to their goal the rivers go.

8 All things are wearisome. No one can say that eyes have not had enough of seeing, ears their fill of hearing.

9 What was, will be again, what has been done, will be done again, and there is nothing new under the sun!

10 Take anything which people acclaim as being new: it existed in the centuries preceding us.

11 No memory remains of the past, and so it will be for the centuries to come — they will not be remembered by their successors.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 90:3-4, 5-6, 12-13, 14, 17

3 You bring human beings to the dust, by saying, ‘Return, children of Adam.’

4 A thousand years are to you like a yesterday which has passed, like a watch of the night.

5 You flood them with sleep — in the morning they will be like growing grass:

6 in the morning it is blossoming and growing, by evening it is withered and dry.

12 Teach us to count up the days that are ours, and we shall come to the heart of wisdom.

13 Come back, Yahweh! How long must we wait? Take pity on your servants.

14 Each morning fill us with your faithful love, we shall sing and be happy all our days;

17 May the sweetness of the Lord be upon us, to confirm the work we have done!

Gospel, Luke 9:7-9

7 Meanwhile Herod the tetrarch had heard about all that was going on; and he was puzzled, because some people were saying that John had risen from the dead,

8 others that Elijah had reappeared, still others that one of the ancient prophets had come back to life.

9 But Herod said, ‘John? I beheaded him. So who is this I hear such reports about?’ And he was anxious to see him.

“The Universal Life Church World Headquarters defends the unborn, feeds the hungry, shelters the homeless, educates the young, welcomes refugees, and cares for the sick, both at home and abroad. They believe the Bible is the verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God.”

Ordination

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.

Do you wish to pursue a vocation in ministry – become a minister, get ordained or serve as a wedding officiant? We provide ordination to men and women enabling work in all facets of Christian Ministry with ministers in the USA, Canada, UK, Africa, South America, Germany, India, France, Switzerland, Thailand, Japan, Australia, China, Mexico and many other countries throughout the world.

Notice the difference between what happens when a man says to himself, I have failed three times, and what happens when he says, I’m a failure.
—S. I. Hayakawa

What happens to us when we call ourselves names like “failure” or “dummy”? We feel we’re no good and never will be. We want to stop trying because we think we’ll flub up again.

But what if we begin to use different words to describe the same results? It won’t change the results, but it will change us. And it will change the way we see our actions and ourselves.

Just by changing the words we use we can feel better about ourselves. Saying, “I’ve failed three times,” means we’ll try again and again and again until we succeed. It means we know God doesn’t make any failures or dummies. It means God is always with us, loving us and helping us, even when trying seems difficult.

What can I change my thinking about today?

Daily Bible Readings From The Universal Life Church World Headquarters

Universal Life Church Daily Thought and Daily Bible Readings

Reading 1, Proverbs 30:5-9

5 Every word of God is unalloyed, a shield to those who take refuge in him.

6 To his words make no addition, lest he reprove you and account you a liar.

7 Two things I beg of you, do not grudge me them before I die:

8 keep falsehood and lies far from me, give me neither poverty nor riches, grant me only my share of food,

9 for fear that, surrounded by plenty, I should fall away and say, ‘Yahweh-who is Yahweh?’ or else, in destitution, take to stealing and profane the name of my God.

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 119:29, 72, 89, 101, 104, 163

29 Keep me far from the way of deceit, grant me the grace of your Law.

72 The Law you have uttered is more precious to me than all the wealth in the world.

89 For ever, Yahweh, your word is planted firm in heaven.

101 I restrain my foot from evil paths to keep your word.

104 From your precepts I learn wisdom, so I hate all deceptive ways.

163 Falsehood I hate and detest, my love is for your Law.

Gospel, Luke 9:1-6

1 He called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases,

2 and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.

3 He said to them, ‘Take nothing for the journey: neither staff, nor haversack, nor bread, nor money; and do not have a spare tunic.

4 Whatever house you enter, stay there; and when you leave let your departure be from there.

5 As for those who do not welcome you, when you leave their town shake the dust from your feet as evidence against them.’

6 So they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and healing everywhere.
