UBIS Celebrates Its Fifth Birthday!

News from The Urantia Book Internet School

In June The Urantia Book Internet School (UBIS) completed its fifth year of courses for readers around the world. The first course in English began in July 1999, and through June 2004 there have been a total of 49. In addition, a growing number of readers are now studying in Finnish, French, and Spanish. During the school's first five years, over eight hundred readers have participated.

For UBIS Board members and the teacher/facilitators who work together to give courses, these five years have been a rewarding opportunity to gather experience and build teamwork. In the last two years, the group has developed teacher-training and mentoring programs, including a handbook for all new teachers and facilitators. In June these dedicated volunteers gathered at Foundation headquarters in Chicago for a weekend of evaluation and planning, and their innovative ideas are already bearing fruit.

On August 30, readers can begin registering for courses that start in September ( The school invites everyone who shares our strong interest in the teachings to participate in these activities of education, outreach, study, and teacher training.

The true teacher maintains his intellectual integrity by ever remaining a learner. (p.1433, par.2)
