The overriding objective of the Urantia Global Experience is spiritual unity, a unity inspired
by our common motive to do the will of God, and by the recognition that each of us is
indwelt by the spiritual gift of God.
More specifically, we aspire to spiritual unity for the purpose of effecting positive changes in
the evolution of civilization on our planet. Through unity we gain strength, making it
possible for all of us to lift together in the great task of making such progressive changes a
reality. And as we lift together to raise our world a little closer to an age of light and life, we
find ourselves engaged in humble service to God the Supreme.
While we share a common understanding of destiny and hope, we also recognize that our
spiritual unity is built on a foundation of free personality and spirit originality. As Jesus said,
“You do not have to see alike or feel alike, or even think alike, in order spiritually to be
The Urantia revelation, prayer, and worship provide our inspiration and direction as we work
in full cooperation with the angels of progress to provide a positive environment conducive
to both individual and group participation.
It is our desire that the Urantia Global Experience will bring together free and original
thinkers dedicated to doing the will of God and serving others. Our objective is to further a
progressive civilization by formulating effective methods to improve the institutions and
practices of our planet. To this end, participants will have the opportunity to work together
in Focus Groups and Vision Teams.
Focus Groups – Thinking Inside the Circles
Focus Group participants concentrate their discussions around the twelve points outlined in
The Urantia Book under “Progressive Civilization” [71:4]. It is the goal of Focus Group
sessions to be united in purpose and, through teamwork, to achieve greater comprehension
and actualization of God the Supreme by working towards the betterment of social,
economic, and political institutions.
Participants are encouraged to draw on present knowledge and research as well as the
teachings of The Urantia Book. Focus Groups will explore and clarify the issues surrounding
the arts of civilization and make recommendations for avenues of service.
Vision Teams – Building Outside the Circles
“The religious challenge of this age is to those farseeing and forward-looking men and women of spiritual insight who will dare to construct a new and appealing philosophy of living out of the enlarged and exquisitely integrated modern concepts of cosmic truth, universe beauty, and divine goodness.” [2:7.10]
Vision teams are composed of presenters, panelists, project leaders, authors, artists, and
inspirational speakers who will engage in creating cooperative service projects for the
revelation, as well as learning and contributing to existing or emerging projects in the future
service of civilization.
The aim is to engage with the insights gained from our morning discussions outlining our
visions for service, teaching, and living of the revelatory truths on both a personal and
collective level by finding supportive ways to cooperate with existing service organizations.
The Focus Groups and the Vision Teams will present their collective insights and
conclusions at the end of the experience. In this final meeting, group facilitators and team
leaders act as centers of dialogue through which all participants can engage. We hope to
inspire everyone to continue to evolve these ideas with the intention of making them a
reality on the world stage.
“And then, when you are blessed with spiritual vision, go forth to your work, dedicating your life to the cause of leading mankind to search for God and to seek eternal realities with the eye of spiritual faith and not with the eyes of the material mind.” [181:2.20]
