The goal of the course is to help participants identify more fully and consistently with the soul-self and morontia-mind rather than the material-self and human-mind. This endeavor will be undertaken by examining our motivations, identifying our purposes, and activating transformation by turning the text of The Urantia Book into affirmations, thereby putting us in intimate conversation with our Thought Adjusters and in alignment with the Father’s divine plan for our progressive perfection attainment. Affirmations deliberately written in the first-person point of view strengthen the process of transferring the seat of one’s identity to the soul.

Who is God? What is God's relationship to the Universe and to Us?

Formerly Overview of Part I

Urantia Book Studies

This class will focus on the key concepts of Part I of The Urantia Book which range from the Deity personalities of the Paradise Trinity to the major orders of divine beings who descend from the Trinity to function in manifold ways in Havona and the seven superuniverses. Close attention will be paid to the loving nature of the Universal Father, the First Source and Center of the master universe, and how we may best relate to God. Revamped version of the Overview of Part I of The Urantia Book course.

What Happens After Death?

Formerly Overview of Part II

Urantia Book Studies

We will discover that our local universe (and all the universes of space and time) is remarkably well-ordered, efficiently administered, and superbly coordinated in order to advance and support the Paradise ascension scheme of mortal spiritual progression.

We will also examine the history of Nebadon from its origin and early stages of development to its present status and beyond to its glorious destiny in a far distant future when it achieves the highest stage of light and life. Just as the physical universe and all its personal beings are evolving towards perfection, so too are our Creator Son and Mother Spirit as they guide their creation to the fullness and exhaustion of all its potentials.

Why do Good and Evil Exist? How does Freewill and Evolution Contribute to the Supreme?

Formerly Overview of Part III

Urantia Book Studies

What are some of the major concepts presented in Part III of The Urantia Book and what does it say about humanity’s origin, purpose and destiny? This class explores revelatory answers to age-old questions about humanity’s true nature and role in the evolution of the universe.

Part III of the Urantia Book takes us on an exciting journey of evolution, starting with the formation of our solar system and the original marine life implantations in Urantia’s warm, primitive ocean through the long ages of slow and often surprising evolutionary developments to the first pair of truly human beings nearly one million years ago. We will discover what sets human beings apart from their evolutionary cousins and confers upon them an extraordinary capacity for divine perfection and an eternal destiny.
