          Format

          There will be time for listening, studying, sharing, prayer, meditation, and worship.

          The present planet-wide crisis affects us all in one way or another.  It's causing massive personal, societal, and economic disruptions. It can also deliver the kind of punch that knocks many people off center and provides a hidden gift: A chance for redirection and the discovery of spiritual truth, an opportunity to reconfigure our lives, thinking, and behaviors based on new enlightened foundations and structures. 

            • How do we adapt and bring a spiritual context and understanding to the situation? 
            • How do we best minister to others in this environment? How can we spread love, not fear?
            • How do we deal with our own fears, doubts and questions? 
            • How can we function as the lights in the world that we ought to be and want to be?
            • What kind of opportunities does this give us for spreading the gospel? 
            • How might Spirit be using this situation to elevate spiritual awareness?

          Until the need passes, in addition to its ongoing courses, UUI will be sponsoring a series of Zoom sessions we’re calling theUUI Cafe. These will consist of a Zoom meeting each weekday and on the weekends at a different time each day to accommodate various time zones and schedules as best we can.  Each day of the week will have a different focus, but all will impinge upon the current cultural crisis. 

          We will use passages from The Urantia Book for conversation starters, and pause for moments of focused worshipnow and then.

          These sessions will be moderated by members of the UUI staff. The UUI Cafe is intended to be a place where members of the Urantia community can get together in supportive and Spirit-affirming discussions based on the clear light and spiritual truths of The Urantia Book. 

          There are no assignments for these discussions, but the participants are encouraged to share passages from the UB and other resources that have given them insight and guidance in difficult circumstances.

          The only thing you need to join is the Zoom link.

          Contact admin@urantiauniversity.org

          This is an experiment.  We will modify the schedule as needed to correspond with the demand and people's schedules, but will always notify everyone of the change by advance email.  We really don’t know what the response will be or if this will really meet a need in the Urantian community but we’re going to give it a try and see what happens.


          Bring your hopes and fears, your love and sorrows.

          Discover spiritual truth and wisdom.

          Experience love and solidarity during this time of planet-wide crisis. 

          Leave in faith, trust and LOVE.
