When people join together for study, to discover together new truths, to share their spiritual journey, remarkable things can and will happen. Balanced participation, shared openness, intellectual discovery, a heightened sense of values and warm fellowship: what could be a more superb focus for study than The Urantia Book?
This guide has been produced with loving care by people who respect the mission given to us by the revelators to create thousands of study groups.
Much has been written over the years on the value of Study Groups. Here you will find links to some historical articles that were written about Study Groups by some of the early leaders of the Urantia Movement.
We must know The Urantia Book (the facts) and teach the book (the meanings) so that we can live the teachings of the book (the values). The living laboratory from which teachers naturally emerge is the local study group.
Study group hosts embark on a journey that is filled with many rewards as well as some difficulties. Successful study group hosts have found that the basic keys to success are consistency, dedication, patience, understanding, love, and effort. We hope you find these hints for hosting a study group helpful.
