Upcoming events (3)
Most weeks, our group has a topical discussion and then spends the remainder of the time reading through a section of the book titled, “The Life and Teachings of Jesus.” This week, we will dedicate the entire time to reading and discussion about Jesus’ teachings. The excerpt that we read through will depend on where we leave off the previous week, but upcoming topics in that section include: *why people misperceive God as wrathful *evolution of the God concept from the Old Testament *assurance of the loving nature of God *difference between the family of God and the kingdom of God concepts You do nDe Pereot need to be familiar with The Urantia Book to attend.

Join Urantia Discussions as we take a break from our normal conversation and participate in a contemplative Taize service held at Old St. Joseph Church at St. Norbert College. We'll meet outside the church at 6:15 so that we can chat briefly and go in together. This service is open to all faiths. Not sure what Taize is? Here is a link with a nice description. https://cruxnow.com/faith/2014/12/03/the-quieting-mystical-experience-of-taize-prayer/
So many of our misunderstandings are brought on by a perspective that is too narrow--we don’t understand the whole picture. How does our perception of time change as we get older, as we--hopefully--get wiser? What does our perception of time say about our own maturing personalities? How can our understanding of time help us to understand God’s creation? You do not need to be familiar with The Urantia Book to attend. All people from all backgrounds are welcome to share their thoughts in conversation. After our topical discussion, we will read through a section of The Urantia Book titled, ‘The Life and Teachings of Jesus’ and we will continue to discuss as points come up. A book will be provided. This discussion group is a wonderful opportunity to talk about things that don’t come up in normal conversation. I hope you will join us.
