is a new house. Moving into fresh newly painted rooms you use: the
study-office, the bedroom, the kitchen, the breakfast room, the dining
room, the living room, the guest room and the playroom. Every house
does not necessarily offer such a full compliment of rooms but each
room offers its newness and delight in building your own vibrations

Ranch and Worldwide Healing Ministry has many buildings serving our
needs. We have the Monastery, the Citadel, the Hermitage, the

Now we have added another lovely structure to our 80-acre spiritual
center. We have added the Embassy to the campus. It includes: the UNI
Deanís offices, the great lecture-seminar hall, counseling rooms,
the Jermini Prayer Chapel meditation center and sound studio, a
four-car garage and a meditation-introspection room with its Swimex
and Jacuzzi for staff and students. It is the work and living site of
the Ambassador of our multinational international interdenominational
The great hall will host seminars to be held annually within its
walls. Here too are given daily lectures and meditation retreats.
The Jermini Prayer Chapel looks over the mountains and meditation
garden. From the Jermini Prayer Chapel are prepared meditation tapes,
Mr Candle talks and inspirational talks used in student lessons. The
Jermini Prayer Chapel is dedicated as a living honor to the Chairman
of the Board, the Reverend Doctor Ellen Jermini as a gift from her
children and grandchildren.
The Ambassadorís study is the editorial and creative center of the
Dean. The study is adjacent to the counseling offices. Already it has
been the scene of many counseling sessions and administrative work of
Our motto: Be Yourself and Have fun! is emphasized by the
creation of the many meditation paths and the introspection time
facilities on campus the gracious outdoors swimming pool surrounded by
the Absolute Monastery Monk Cells and the Swimex center in the
Embassy. The meditation paths weave a quiet network of miles of
walking paths throughout the campus grounds of the Absolute Monastery
and the adjacent thousands of acres of public land. The Paradise
Garden with its waterfall and circulating ponds offers a quiet place
of introspection. Looking out over the many mountains surrounding the
international headquarters, this several acre garden is a place of
mental focus for inner seekers.
As the Embassy landscaping is completed we will put pictures of these
features in future issues of the GIST.
What If No
dedicated student who has counseled with me over the decades, wrote
telling of his reaching out to be the finest minister-at-large he is
able to be. The thoughts from his letter speak to many of us as we are
starting out in the ministry. I will let the Reverend Roger Perry
speak for himself.
Herb: Yes, indeed, I am a minister-at-large of the Church of God
Unlimited and it is an honor to serve my fellowman. I am looking
forward to writing my thesis on WHY I DESIRE TO BE A MINISTER. There
may even be some things in my thesis of which even YOU are not yet
aware. Truthfully, I cannot say that for sure, because I revealed a
lot of myself to you when we were together and you probably know me
better than anyone I have ever known.
However, I have an inner concern a fear that I may not be a successful
minister. I question whether I am worthy to be a representative for
God Unlimited as a minister.
After meditating on this for some time, I created the opportunity to
speak to more and more people on the philosophy we believe. In so
doing, I became aware that I created this because I needed to affirm
my newly gained understanding, my ability to express my true God
nature and the reality of who I am as God.
You said in the MINISTERS MANUAL on Page 92 Some
ministers/practitioners have concern over the thought, What if I held
a healing service and nothing happened? My thought is, What if I
hold a worship service and no one came?
You said anyone who has thoughts like this is already done-in-for and
might as well get out of the practice because you have already
called/created yourself and the service a failure.
I am not willing to go out like that. I know that I know that I know.
I have no doubt in myself as God. When I talk with people I sense the
magnetic attraction my inner spirit has with them and how the truth
that I speak energizes their every fiber. As I speak, I feel a great
energy filling me, empowering me, uplifting my inner awareness,
sharpening my memories and so much more.
Truly as Ellen, my proctor, told me in the beginning of my studies, I
am in for quite an adventure. The only thing that can slow me down
is the fear that I have within myself and the limitations I choose to
Now I wrap each person with whom I counsel with my great white light
of love, knowing I had to do no more. I work with many others on a
daily basis and know there is a definite place for my ministry.
Happy birthday on your 24th anniversary for the UNI. I know
you have made a difference in my life. You will be around for another
24,000 years to touch and enlighten other lives as you have mine.
Thank you Herb. I believe in myself. I am a good minister.
one of us comes to a point of awakening in our lives where we take
hold of the miracle of who we are. As we see all in the world about us
as beautiful as we conceive us to be, our ministry will flow in a
neverending circle of blessings.
