September Trimester Courses

Ministering Spirits of the Local Universe

By Michelle Kaiser

Our local universe of Nebadon is brimming with splendid spirit personalities who minister to mortals, both here on Urantia and in our subsequent morontia life. During this study we will explore the wonderful assortment of angels, including the seraphim, cherubim, and sanobim, who are instrumental in assisting us in the earliest stages of our ascent to Paradise. Besides receiving the service of our angelic helpers, we are also assisted by numerous other devoted celestial personalities, such as midwayers, morontia companions, and reversion directors. Together, we will cultivate an appreciation of these helpful and loving friends and companions!

And Jesus Answered, “Follow Me.”

This exciting short course stretches from the first to the twentieth century as we explore the profound benefits from the coming of the Spirit of Truth at Pentecost.

Evolving Concepts of Deity on Urantia

By Kenneth White

How did our concept of Deity evolve from a primitive, fear-based animism to that of a loving and merciful heavenly Father? In this course, we will study the long and wending evolution of religion on Urantia. We will focus on the valiant efforts of prophets and spiritual leaders to propagate revealed truth on our spiritually impaired planet; how their efforts were shaped by evolving social mores and the many obstacles that face our evolving concept of Deity. Even now, the perplexities of our rapidly changing world call for a new and unfettered concept of God.
