School of Service

We serve the servers.
Join our courses to up-level your service-directed life of purpose, with peers and mentors, in service to the Supreme Being.

 

In early 2022, Urantia University Institute’s Board was curious to embark upon the development of an untouched aspect of UUI’s mission: Service. That same year a generous award by the Crestwood Foundation made it possible to move forward with the School of Service and its beta course and emerging social transformation community network.

We are inspired by this admonition from paper 28, regarding what the revelators call the "privilege of service." 

Service—purposeful service, not slavery—is productive of the highest satisfaction and is expressive of the divinest dignity. Service—more service, increased service, difficult service, adventurous service, and at last divine and perfect service—

is the goal of time and the destination of space.

The School of Service's motto is, "We serve the servers." Our courses and Service Leaders help you to identify your unique talents and give you guidance of how best to use them to add value to the Supreme Being. We are excited about serving with you!

Service Inspiration

With God the Father, sonship is the great relationship.  With God the Supreme, achievement is the prerequisite to status – one must do something as well as be something. UB 115:0:1  

 

Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone's task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it. Viktor E. Frankl

 

Religion influences social reconstruction directly because it spiritualizes and idealizes the individual citizen. Indirectly, cultural civilization is influenced by the attitude of these individual religionists as they become active and influential members of various social, moral, economic, and political groups. UB 99:3.3 

 

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. Mahatma Gandhi

 

...the spiritual renaissance must wait for the coming of these new teachers of Jesus’ religion who will be exclusively devoted to the spiritual regeneration of humanity. And then these spirit-born souls will quickly supply the leadership and inspiration requisite for the social, moral, economic, and political reorganization of the world. UB 195:9.4


The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. Ralph Waldo Emerson
