To: General Councilors, Society Presidents, and Field Representatives
The exhilarating experience of the General Conference at George Williams
College along with the feed-back which we have received following the conference
suggests that this was probably the most unifying and inspiring group experience
in the history of the Brotherhood. We should like to thank all who contributed
to its effectiveness and success.
Our General Council meeting was the most open and educational meeting
we have ever had. The various issues and problems referred to the Executive
Committee for study have been assigned to committees. The General Council,
I believe, will assume a larger and more active roll in shaping the policies
of Urantia Brotherhood. This is a healthy development toward developing
a broader base of decision making in the Brotherhood.
As a consequence of the enlightened guidance of the General Council,
the Houston society is planning to invite John and me down to meet with
their society and explore ways in which they may be able to join with us
in supporting the Licensing Agreement.
The Administrative Committee was instructed to work out a letter of
agreement for the Urantia Brotherhood Corporation which would authorize
the Corporation to act as the distributor of the Concordex. The agreement
will be voted on at the next meeting of the Board of Directors of the Corporation.
Judith A. Cosky of Clawson, Michigan, William G. Nelson of Flint, Michigan,
and Trevor Swadling of Melbourne, Australia, were elected as members-at-large.
The Triennial Delegate Assembly will meet August 17 and 18, 1979.
The First Pacific Conference for Students of The Urantia Book will be
held in Hawaii September 23 to 25. The Kendalls and the Sprungers plan
to attend and stay about a week in order to meet with as many individuals
and study groups as possible. We are looking forward to a stimulating and
rewarding experience in fellowship.
We are enclosing updated lists of the departmental committees and society
As your fall activities get under way, we send you our warm best wishes
for a productive and fulfilling year.
Meredith J. Sprunger, President
