Since Science Symposium II in November 2019, scientific discoveries have continued to expand and excite public consciousness. A worldwide pandemic and its aftermath propelled mRNA, CRISPR-Cas9, and the benefits of genetic research into the mainstream. A recent study published by a Smithsonian anthropologist used ancient DNA to trace modern South Asian ancestry back to early hunter-gatherers of Iran. Scientists released the largest 3D map of the universe ever created, producing measurements of more than two million galaxies and quasars. The current worldview of an expanding universe continues to approach that of revealed cosmology, which describes a universe revolving about God on Paradise.

Join our presenters as they delve into the dual perspectives of current scientific discoveries and The Urantia Book, exploring ways in which evolution continues to approach revelation.

SUMMER STUDY SESSION 2022

Thursday, July 21st – Sunday, July 24th

Machiventa Melchizedek:

Preserving Truth and Lighting the Way for Future Revelations

Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center 3500 Midwest Rd, Oak Brook, Illinois (near Chicago)

The Urantia Book Fellowship’s Education Committee is pleased to announce the upcoming Summer Study Session (SSS) 2022 to be held at the beautiful Oak Brook Hills Resort and Conference Center. At long last, we will be gathering with our Urantia family in-person again, to learn about “one of the most unique of all characters ever to become connected with the history of Urantia.” Paper 93:10.11 (page 1026.1)

It was 4,000 years ago that Machiventa Melchizedek heroically “personalized” on earth; at a perilous time when revealed truth was on the brink of extinction.

Together we will:

Examine the circumstances that lead to his bestowal;

Study his teachings and how they set the stage for Michael’s bestowal;

Explore the lessons to be learned from the Melchizedek mission for us as modern-day truth revealers;

And much more…

Are you familiar with our Library Placement Program?

Spread the teachings by placing The Urantia Book in libraries or alternative libraries.

For years readers have placed The Urantia Book in public libraries. Another library placement opportunity-the alternative library-remains untapped. Libraries in coffee shops, hotels, cruise ships, bed and breakfast inns, youth hostels, restaurants, truck stops, waiting rooms, nursing homes, churches and fraternity and sorority houses are the perfect spots for people to find The Urantia Book. So next time you stay at, or pass by, an establishment that has a library, place a copy of The Urantia Book on their library shelf.
