My Internship - September 2021

By Rev. Brian Kirsch

I’m not a real intern, but I play one on planet Earth.”

~ Robert Young - Dr. Welby M.D. 

I find myself having moments of living in the past. It’s a smug, know-it-all kinda thing. I think, and actually believe that since I have been on a spiritual path, that there are certain things that I already know. But I had an awareness the other day…I don’t know everything! I know, an adult moment! “This thing about me having to have a certain amount of time each month as an in…

Seven Simple Guides - September 2021

by Brian L Crissey


Life gets complicated, and yet the best guidance is often very simple.

The Good Man had some simple suggestions that would be good for us all to follow.

Judge not.

We can never know that we have a correct interpretation of everything that is pertinent to the issue at hand. So we cannot reliably judge. Clarifying information may arrive tomorrow, so don't judge others, or yourself.

Love others, including yourself, and seek the highest degree of Love in every sit…

Goldilocks and a Bear - August 2021

By Brian Kirsch


A twisted adventure of the highest degree of love

One day, a young woman (we’ll call her Goldilocks) ventured into the woods in search of a deeper meaning to life. While on her sojourn, she came upon a small cottage. She was intrigued as to why anyone would have a home in the middle of the woods. Upon turning the handle on the door, it opened. Looking in, Goldilocks noticed that there was no one home. So she let herself in.

Let’s hold the story here for a second…It seems …

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.
