    The Urantia Book Fellowship’s Education Committee is pleased to announce the upcoming Summer Study Session (SSS) 2022 to be held at the beautiful Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center.  At long last, we will be gathering with our Urantia family in-person again, to learn about “one of the most unique of all characters ever to become connected with the history of Urantia.”  Paper 93:10.11 (page 1026.1)  It was 4,000 years ago that Machiventa Melchizedek heroically “personalized” on earth; at a perilous time when revealed truth was on the brink of extinction.  

    Together we will:

           Examine the circumstances that lead to his bestowal;

           Study his teachings and how they set the stage for Michael’s bestowal;  

           Explore the lessons to be learned from the Melchizedek mission for us as modern-day truth revealers;

           And much more…   

    CALL FOR PRESENTERS AND VOLUNTEERS:   

    Are you interested in presenting your ideas and sharing your experience with your fellows?  The Education Committee is soliciting workshop presentations related to the theme of “Machiventa Melchizedek.”  Please use this link to contact our Program Coordinator, Tim Duffy, to request a Workshop Proposal form.  

    Are you interested in volunteering for other aspects of the planning of the Conference?  Please use this link to contact our Conference Chair, Mahtab Tehrani, to volunteer.  Thank you!   

    WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE:   

    Come study, worship and fraternize with us as we reflect on many of the features of the Third Epochal Revelation and celebrate the 4,000th anniversary of Machiventa Melchizedek’s bestowal on our planet!

    Tema de la conferencia: el don de la revelación | La vida y las enseñanzas de Jesús 

    Nuestra misión: traer una nueva y más alta revelación de la verdad a la Perla de África Una de las cosas más importantes en la vida humana es descubrir lo que Jesús creía, descubrir sus ideales y luchar por el logro de su exaltado propósito de vida. De todo conocimiento humano, lo que es de mayor valor es conocer la vida religiosa de Jesús y cómo la vivió. Ven y únete a nosotros mientras traemos las nuevas enseñanzas a África que cumplen esta profecía.Una nueva y más completa revelación de la religión de Jesús está destinada a conquistar un imperio de laicismo materialista y derrocar un dominio mundial del naturalismo mecanicista. Nuestro mundo ahora está temblando al borde de una de sus épocas más asombrosas y fascinantes de reajuste social, reactivación moral e iluminación espiritual.El llamado a la aventura de construir una sociedad humana nueva y transformada mediante el renacimiento espiritual de la hermandad del reino de Jesús debería emocionar a todos los que creen en él como hombres que no se han conmovido desde los días en que caminaban por la tierra como suyos. compañeros en la carne ". Equipo organizador de la conferencia:

    Información Adicional:

    El programa proporcionará una mezcla de presentaciones y talleres, y habrá adoración y devociones cada mañana. Actualmente Paul Kemp de Canadá y Abegunde de Nigeria están haciendo presentaciones. Los lectores de mucho tiempo están desarrollando talleres con el equipo en Uganda. Además, habrá videos y material didáctico desarrollado a lo largo de los años por maestros avanzados y líderes de la revelación. Esperamos que Pato Banton y Antoinette puedan venir.

    Paul Kemp está creando un grupo de redes sociales de sitios web para que, después de la Conferencia, aquellos que quieran mantenerse en contacto y desarrollar amistades puedan encontrarse fácilmente y tener un lugar para debates, preguntas y respuestas y encontrar los muchos lugares de enseñanza y ayudas didácticas creadas por La creciente familia de la revelación desde su llegada.

    El costo de registro es de $ 15.00 CAD, pero se están recaudando fondos para eximir las tarifas para aquellos que no pueden pagar. Bishop Joseph y Bishop Moses han conseguido un precio real de descuento para un 4 estrellas Jinja City Hotel en Jinja que se encuentra a 140 kilómetros del 90% de los asistentes.
