“It is not so important that you should know about the fact of God 

as that you should increasingly grow in the ability to feel the presence of God.”


The Urantia Book Fellowship’s

The Urantia Book Fellowship's Summer Study Session 2019 will be held at Techny Towers in Northbrook Illinois again this year. It's a tradition that brings our Urantia Book family together for intensive study, worshipful experiences, and the joy of renewing old relationships and making new ones. This year's theme, “Experiencing God's Presence,” will be explored through study, socialization, service and spiritual communion. “The relation between the creature and the Creator is a living experience, a dynamic religious faith, which is not subject to precise definition.” 102:6.1

The Education Committee has planned a new format for this year's program. In addition to high quality self-contained workshops in which creative students share their thoughtful insights on the theme, there will be short talks followed by small groups who will stay together to discuss focused questions. These talks and question-driven discussions will explore the conference theme aligned with strong educational principles. In addition, there will be daily contemplative worship time and evening socials.

The Summer Study Session will be preceded by a two day spiritual retreat beginning on Tuesday evening, June 25th, and a Society Conclave will be held on Thursday, June 27th. The Fellowship's General Council meeting begins after lunch on Sunday and ends on Tuesday, July 2nd. All are welcome to observe.

If you have an idea for a workshop presentation related to the theme, “Experiencing God's Presence,” contact David Kulieke to request a workshop application form at david.kulieke@gmail.com.

We look forward to the gathering of our Urantia Book family this summer from June 27to June 30to experience God's presence as a prelude to ever increasing service to our brothers and sisters.



“What a mistake to dream of God far off in the skies when the spirit of the Universal Father lives within your own mind!”
