To our revelation blessed spiritual family,
We invite you to a gathering the weekend of March 10-12, 2017. The purpose is to bring together those of us who have an interest in growing the Kingdom of God on our planet and to share it with those around us. This gathering will be held at a conference center in Kansas City located very close to the airport but nestled on acres of gorgeous property. Below are some of the questions we will be pondering and discussing.
What is the Kingdom of God on this earth?
How can we best be ambassadors of such a Kingdom?
Let all mankind benefit from the overflow of your loving spiritual ministry, enlightening intellectual communion, and uplifting social service; but none of these humanitarian labors, nor all of them, should be permitted to take the place of proclaiming the gospel. -178:1
What is the gospel? How can we better share it?
How can we better support those who are willing to share our revelation through spiritual works and living? How can we grow a community of believers that will live the gospel, teach the gospel in our various ways, and support each other?
How important is service, or service with love, in our journey towards God consciousness and partnership. How close can we become to our wonderful Mother Spirit?
Is forgiveness essential for growth in the Kingdom? Why are peacemakers so special?
Christianity has indeed done a great service for this world, but what is now most needed is Jesus. -195:10.1
What can we do to better partner with Michael’s Spirit of Truth? What gift has the Spirit of Truth brought us and why is it important to know?
Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it. -196:1.
Is love, an accumulation of values from the Supreme necessary to grow spiritually? How can we recognize, live and teach, spiritual values? Is there Spiritual help for such an undertaking? How can we grow and help others to grow more spiritually fragrant?
The great challenge to modern man is to achieve better communication with the divine Monitor that dwells within the human mind. -196:3.34
There will be no set presenters. The theme of the gathering is self-evident. There will be small group in-depth study and then presentations of such discussions to the larger group. This gathering will be solely based on the teachings of the Urantia Book concerning personal spiritual growth and the privilege of sharing that growth with God and His other children in the world around us.
We have a limited amount of space available and a limited amount of scholarships for the conference itself. This gathering is intended to be exploratory, fruitful and spirit filled. Our intention is to grow. Please share this with other readers. For more information contact us.

Over the coming months, let’s exchange ideas about these quotes and how we apply them in our lives. Our intention is to share our inner life. Let’s share.
Love Susan and Tom
“It is not so important to love all men today as it is that each day you learn to love one more human being. If each day or each week you achieve an understanding of one more of your fellows, and if this is the limit of your ability, then you are certainly socializing and truly spiritualizing your personality. Love is infectious, and when human devotion is intelligent and wise, love is more catching than hate. But only genuine and unselfish love is truly contagious. If each mortal could only become a focus of dynamic affection, this benign virus of love would soon pervade the sentimental emotion-stream of humanity to such an extent that all civilization would be encompassed by love, and that would be the realization of the brotherhood of man.” Let’s do this! – 100:4.6
