Knowing God Our Mother  


As Tom Choquette remarked in

his Forum talk on our Mother Spirit:


It is not so much that the Holy Spirit

is hidden as it is that we do not

pay attention to her unceasing,

everywhere presence and

activity in our minds.



Speakers for God our Mother
from the Urantian Community


On May 11, 2019, Urantia University Institute presented a Thought Leaders Forum in which 18 women and men from the Urantia community served as Speakers of God our Mother.


They gave eloquent testimony to the reality and personal presence of the Holy Spirit - the Universe Mother Spirit of our local universe of Nebadon - in their lives. Their short talks illuminated the functions and qualities of God our Mother and testified to the fact that we can have a personal relationship with her.

Their lucid insights can help us develop and cultivate a balanced view of God our Father and God our Mother as revealed in The Urantia Book and develop the qualities of each of these personal expressions of God's infinitely loving nature within ourselves. 

The transcripts of their Forum talks are provided below, followed by the written submissions of other devoted students from the Urantia Community. 

The Speakers of God our Mother (in the order of their appearance in the Forum event):

Dave Tenney, Kaye Cooper, Bill Cooper, Sharon Porter, Mary Huggins, Lu Schanfarber, Patrick Yesh, Maureen Amato Mayes, Esther Wood, Stuart Kerr, K. Brendi Poppel, Meredith Tenney, Frieda Friendentia, Diane Labrecque, Andre Radatus, Tom Choquette & Susan Cook, and Elisabeth Callahan
