National study day became international thanks to this invitation from members of Australia, New Zealand Urantia Readers Association:
In Australia and New Zealand, we have an annual National Study Day, for readers of The Urantia Book. This event, once a year, allows us to focus on studying together and helps combat the vast distances we experience in this region of the world. On the same weekend, across our two countries, we get together and read the same paper.
This year, we are meeting on the weekend of: 22nd/23rd May 2010
We are studying: Paper 5: God’s Relation to the Individual
We would like to invite you to study with us wherever you are in the world. If you would like to be a part of this international Study Day simply get your local study group together for one day during this weekend, and study Paper 5 together. Or alternatively, study the paper on your own over this weekend.
UAI Forum will participate in the international study "day" this weekend by presenting Paper 5 in sequence, one Section at a time. The introduction and Section 1 of Paper 5 will be posted for your reading and comments at about 20:00 hours GMT on Friday, here in the Study Groups subforum (not OPAD). Subsequent Sections will follow approximately every eight hours.
Overview of Paper Five:
God's Relation to the Individual
1. The Approach to God
2. The Presence of God
3. True Worship
4. God in Religion
5. The Consciousness of God
6. The God of Personality
Readers around Urantia will be studying the Paper simultaneously. Join us if you don't have a group to read with, or simply want to connect with fellow students online during this weekend of global study. You don't have to be a Forum member to read along, only to post.
Spread the word! Thanks, Rick W
