Urantia University Institute
The Urantia University Institute (UUI) offers a wide range of courses in English. See the upcoming classes listed below.
Life and Teachings of Jesus
Instructors: Geri Johnson and Rob Mastroianni
Accepting rolling registration
The Life and Teachings of Jesus course is a weekly guided discussion consisting of a sequential reading of Part IV of The Urantia Book. While this course started on February 23 with Paper 120, the course will accept registrations on a rolling basis due to the length of the course. Each class will be offered two separate times on Thursdays to better accommodate our international audience.
Fearlessly Foreword: A Brief Introduction
Instructor: Merritt Horn
Orientation Date: Monday, March 13
Start Date: Monday, March 20
In this course, we’ll look closely at the purpose and structure of the Foreword, as well as its content. Understanding a piece of writing is about more than memorizing the words and dissecting the sentences the author uses, even if that writing is a dictionary; we also are well-served by examining the author’s purpose for the work as a whole as well as for the various elements that comprise it. So as we seek to better understand the Foreword, we’ll continually be asking not only what is on the page, but why it’s there.
Self-Mastery and Circle Attainment
Instructor: Michael Hill
Orientation Date: Saturday, April 1
Start Date: Saturday, April 15
This course is designed to refresh and renew the spiritual aspirations of Urantia Book readers who have by faith, entered the kingdom of God and therein set for themselves the achievement of the fullness of mortal life. Here, we will strive to address the enhancement of personal spiritual perception and the influence of such growth on daily life while sharing our spiritual life with others and recognizing the religious life of others.
