The Urantia Book – a Treasure Chest

There is in the mind of God a plan which embraces every creature of all his vast domains, and this plan is an eternal purpose of boundless opportunity, unlimited progress, and endless life. And the infinite treasures of such a matchless career are yours for the striving!

In all that we humans experience on a planet whirling through infinite space—all our dreams, resultant joy and success, to all the horrors that mankind can inflict on himself, other species and the earth itself—in all our wandering, squandering, aimless waste and wanton destruction, to all that we can grasp, hold in our hands, hang on to and possess, to the noble, uplifting efforts of those who inspire and are inspired to create and live a wholesome and better life—there is a meaning and purpose in all we do.

There is an over-arching and merciful love that penetrates to the core of our existence, life is an eternal adventure transcending into an awe-inspiring life to come. The answer to who we are and where we are going, why we are here and what yet we are to become, is within us—truly the treasure of the ages. The Urantia Book, holds within its pages, pearls of wisdom, gems of understanding, seeds of love.
This Conference is a special time for we fellow travelers to share that which is precious.

While you live and toil with this mortal coil, rest assured on the treasures of personal growth—love and understanding.
