Constant Change

ADL Blog Images (80)

by Rev. Rita Scheibeck

Today we take a few moments to acknowledge the ways that our personal situations and those of our loved ones have changed over the past two years. Even as we read these words, our local, national, and world events continue to impact our individual and collective circumstances.

We can realize that changes are a constant in our earthly lives and in the universes, but we may not always feel prepared for the tasks of meeting challenges without fears or resentments.

Squirrel Call

ADL Blog Images (79)

by Rev. Mary M. Robertson

Riding my bike through a nearby nature preserve I hear the unique sound of a squirrel, which my mind immediately, and poetically, labeled scolding. I caught a thought. Maybe there’s another interpretation. Maybe it is the sound of the squirrel calling…

During a mindfulness and self-care workshop, during a breakout session, I shared I was a retired nurse before I became a minister. I also shared that I had realized that, while I’ve thought of myself as mostly extrove…

ADL Ministry

The Alliance of Divine Love, Inc. (ADL) is a federally recognized, Non-Profit 501(c)(3) interfaith ministry that embraces and seeks to live the Truth of Divine Love in the Greatest Degree.

ADL ministers offer their own individual expertise and knowledge to those seeking deeper spiritual meaning and growth using a broad spectrum of skills, backgrounds and ideas for spiritual development.

In a society riddled with divisiveness and fear, ADL is a bright light, promoting inclusiveness and love.


Frequently Asked Questions

These are some of the questions people most frequently ask us:

What religion is ADL based on?

ADL is considered an interfaith organization. This means, we are not based on any established religion or spiritual tradition.

However, you will easily find a basis for the lessons in our programs in practically any spiritual tradition. The lessons can also be applied within any religious or spiritual tradition to deepen the experience.

This means, no matter what spiritual background you come from, the lessons shared in ADL will only deepen your spiritual experience.

Can I take courses without being or becoming a minister?

Yes! We have found there are many people who want to deepen their spiritual connection and experience but don't have the desire to become a minister.

Ministers, just like every other spiritual seeker, are on a personal journey to expand and deepen their own spiritual awareness. So, for our ministers, our courses provide both personal growth and continuing education.

Are ministerial training fees refundable?

We take this on a case-by-case basis. 

The fees for ministerial training are mainly used to cover people's time (for reviewing your application and mentoring you through the program). Since people's time cannot be returned to them, we typically do not offer refunds after the time has been spent.

However, we try to be as flexible and supportive as possible, so please feel free to contact us regarding your situation.

How do I renew my ministerial license if I don't want to do it online?

Our website makes it easy and safe to renew your license. It also gives you more control over your profile and information.

However, we know some people are not comfortable using online systems. So, you can also download our renewal form, complete the form and submit it with payment to our mailing address.
