These guys have been around for ever. I remember a long time ago sending
away to be ordained, which was much cooler, because they sent you a whole
package of cool goodies. :) My impression of it, was that it was a big
scam to help you get access to the priveleges of being a minister (certain
things are tax free, special parking permits, etc) and was upset to find
out that in order to do so you needed to actually have a congregation of a
certain number of people (and then send the ULC money).

I really wanted that parking permit. :) Rohit, you've pretty much got a
strong congregation right here, and from the sound of things, you could
really use that parking permit, so maybe this is perfect for you.
