Universal Religion of America

Universal Religion of America

The Universal Religion of America was a Spiritualist movement founded in 1958 in Kenosha, Wisconsin, by the Rev. Marnie Koski. Koski was formerly a minister with the Spiritual Science Mother Church. She was known by the members of her church as Soraya ("Solar Ray") as a result of the channeled messages she receives from Jesus.

During the 1960s, Koski left the Kenosha congregations under the leadership of her students and moved to Florida, first to Rockledge and then to Merritt Island. The Universal Religion had some 500 members in its two centers. Last known address: Christ Universal Church, 295 North Tropical Trail, Merritt Island, FL 32952.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
