QUARTERLY NEWS LETTER FROM
Visitors are always welcome at the meetings of the various societies and study groups. The last meeting for the season of the First Urantia Society will be held at 533 Diversey Parkway at 3 P.M., Sunday, June 9, at which time a topic entitled "Spiritual Influences" will be discussed by Alvin, Luciele, and Adrienne Kulieke.
Even though the price of the Urantia Book has been increased to $15.00, orders are still coming in. So far this year 271 have been sold. Copies of the text books used in the Urantia Brotherhood School are still available.
The following excerpts are from letters recently received:
"Always I have been like a person who has been given a drink but is still thirsty. Not until I received the Urantia Book and read it thru did I feel I had found what I have searched for for years...There is so much to learn and so much inspiration to receive from this book. When you have searched for over thirty years and one day find what you have been searching for, words seem very inadequate to describe your feelings."
"I grew up with the Bible. As I look back over my life, it seems to have been my constant companion. I loved the New Testament. Jesus was real. There wasn't anything strange or formal about him to me. The early '30's were especially trying for me, and I studied the Scriptures more than usual during that period. Always I seemed to come back to that very last verse in the Book of John. (John 21;25) 'And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.'
"I remember crying one day because I wanted so very much to know just what more of those things were that 'should be written' about Jesus. After a while I very simply asked him if there was not some way he could tell me some of those things I wanted so much to know. Then...I waited. AND HE DID. Thank you, Jesus, for my Urantia Book."
Over the past few years we have had many people who desired to attend the Urantia Brotherhood School, but have been unable to be present over a prolonged period. It is our intention in the summer study session to provide a concentrated period of study of the Urantia Book for all people interested, including those who have been in the school for some years, those who are planning to become Certified Leaders or Ordained Teachers, as well as all those who simply have an interest in the Urantia Book and would like to learn more about it.
Detailed information about the session is on the enclosed sheets. If you would like to have more registration forms and programs for your friends, please write Miss Marian Rowley, Secretary-General, Urantia Brotherhood, 533 Diversey Parkway, Chicago 14, Illinois.
Completed registration forms should also be mailed to Miss Rowley.
