Dear Alfred,

I wish you are very, very happy birthday today!!

Here is today's "Thought Gem",

"God answers the soul's attitude, not the words." (p. 1002)


Here is a saying often quoted by an elderly retired dentist I know. He says, "Life is a complicated proceedure."

I hope we hear from you soon.

All the best,
Meredith

Happy Birthday Rey!

Here is a quote from page 1097:

"Man cannot cause growth, but he can supply favorable conditions. Growth is always unconscious, be it physical, intellectual, or spiritual. Love thus grows; it cannot be created, manufactured, or purchased; it must grow."


All the very best,

Meredith

Happy Birthday Awakening!

Here is one of my favorite quotes:

All the very best,

Meredith

Happy Birthday Kenneth Monge!

A few years back some of my Urantia friends created and published a desk calendar of quotes we pulled out of the book. From this calendar for today's date I send you this quotation, a thought gem for your birthday:

Do not make the mistake of judging another's religion by your own standards of knowledge and truth. (p. 1115)


Wshing you every happiness and joy of spiritual refreshment on this special day.

All the best,
Meredith

Dear Coop,

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday today in celebration of your first day on Urantia give or take 5 decades ago! You must have been born the year the UB was published.

Have a wonderful day!
Meredith

PS Here's a thought gem for today's date:

. . . many who are inwardly sure about God fear to assert such feelings of certainty because of the multiplicity and cleverness of those who assemble objections and magnify difficulties about believing in God. It requires no great depth of intellect to pick flaws, ask questions, or raise objections. But it does require brilliance of mind to answer these questions and solve these difficulties; faith certainty is the greatest technique for dealing with all such superficial contentions. (1126)

Jesus' 2015th!




~ THE BIRTH OF JESUS ~

...All that night Mary was restless so that neither of them slept much. By the break of day the pangs of childbirth were well in evidence, and at noon, August 21, 7 B.C., with the help and kind ministrations of women fellow travelers, Mary was delivered of a male child. Jesus of Nazareth was born into the world, was wrapped in the clothes which Mary had brought along for such a possible contingency, and laid in a near-by manger.... p1351

***

...After the wine and the water had been mixed, they brought the cup to Jesus, who, when he had received it from the hand of Thaddeus, held it while he offered thanks. And when he had finished offering thanks, he said: "Take this cup and divide it among yourselves and, when you partake of it, realize that I shall not again drink with you the fruit of the vine since this is our last supper. When we sit down again in this manner, it will be in the kingdom to come." p.1938

Happy Birthday Bill Urantia!

Here's a "Thought Gem" for September 15:

When you have become wholly dedicated to the doing of the will of the Father in heaven, the answer to all your petitions will be forthcoming because your prayers will be in full accordance with the Father's will, and the Father's will is ever manifest throughout his vast universe. (1639)


May all of our prayers be in full accordance to the Father's will!

Have a great day!
Meredith
