UUI Thought Leaders Forum Presents a live Zoom webinar on “The Mission of Adversity and the Spiritual Value of Disappointment” with Dr. James Perry ~ Raleigh, North Carolina Saturday, February 16, 2019 1 pm to 2:30 pm Eastern time USA Moderator: Dr. Gard Jameson Panelists: Dr. Steve Dreier, Katharina Becker, Sherry Cathcart Chavis Sponsored by UrantiaUniversity Institute and Urantia Foundation Education Committee About the Presentation “Even as mortals, so have these angels been father to many disappointments, and they will point out that sometimes your most disappointing disappointments have become your greatest blessings.” 48:6.36 (555.4) Progress is the watchword of the universe. Adversity and disappointment are tools provided to us in mercy and grace by the heavenly Father to ensure that we continue to progress spiritually. Adversity rescues us from our comfort zones and disappointment stimulates us to change as we experience adversity. It is a value given to us because of the relativity of our concept frame, which must continually give rise to higher and higher concepts. Join us as Dr. Perry, a long-time student of The Urantia Book, presents on the meaning and value of our struggles as taught by the Revelators. He will also share some personal insights gained as a result of a very recent crisis, which he says has caused an enhanced understanding and appreciation for spiritual qualities being taught to us by our loving Father. The presentation will be followed by a robust question and answer session moderated by Gard Jameson, with panelists Steve Dreier, Katharina Becker, and Sherry Cathcart Chavis.

The UUI Thought Leaders Forum is a series of online dialogues modeled in part on the TED Talks concept. The primary distinction is that the UUI Thought Leaders Forum is interactive and has a spiritual context for examining and presenting ideas of progressive, evolutionary value in science, philosophy, and religion inspired by The Urantia Book. It also looks at how these three domains of knowledge intersect with human systems and the development of civilization.
