Urantia is now quivering on the very brink of one of its most amazing and enthralling epochs of social readjustment, moral quickening, and spiritual enlightenment.

According to The Urantia Book, the cultural epochs of our world have been sponsored and fostered in all sorts of ways. That none of these epochs have unfolded as planned just confirms that free will and human choice have been given free rein in this backward corner of creation. And now we find ourselves quivering on the brink of one of our world’s “most amazing and enthralling epochs”. Given the geopolitical landscape, the rise and self-assertion of so many self-interested factions, and the imposition of disruptive technologies, it’s safe to say many familiar systems and assumptions will soon be forced to evolve. Which makes one wonder: is it possible for humans to steer such evolution? Can wise leadership help humanity navigate the upcoming “interesting times”? Can sincerity and good intentions help civilization to advance?
