To all students of The Urantia Book,

Urantia Association International (UAI) is firmly committed to developing leaders for the fifth epochal revelation. Next year, 2011, leaders from all of Urantia will gather in Chicago for spiritual, personal, and organizational leadership training. This unique and historic event is the "UAI Leadership 2011" symposium.

Symposium participants will receive a fresh understanding of the Urantia revelation history and develop skills in organization and teamwork, with an emphasis on fostering study groups. We see increasing interest and awareness of The Urantia Book worldwide. There is an increasing need for teachers and leaders to serve the growing international readership community.

At UAI Leadership 2011, current leaders will be strengthened and new leaders will be nurtured. Experienced leaders will interact with other leaders who will then return to their communities as ambassadors of progress and the spiritual development for this planet. This event will give leaders a model for training teachers and leaders in their local areas when they return home and the continuing support they need to serve their local readership community. We believe this will be a major benefit to the spiritual evolution of our planet.

We need your help with prayers and financial support. Funding is needed to pay for the event facilities, program materials, and assist with travel expenses for participants coming from far away places. You support needed today to make this event possible.

A reader of The Urantia Book has posted a $20,000 matching fund challenge. Your financial contribution, whether in Dollars, Euros, Pesos, or Pounds, will automatically be doubled by this matching contribution from our anonymous benefactor. This will double your contribution to train teachers and leaders who will return to their communities as ambassadors for the Urantia revelation. We invite you to take advantage of this matching fund opportunity today by sending your own personal financial contribution to:

Urantia Association International,
559 W. Diversey Parkway #351,
Chicago, IL, 60614-7640, USA.

To contribute by debit/credit card, call UAI at: 1-773-572-1180 in the USA. We need your support for the UAI Leadership 2011 symposium. Thank you.

With love and friendship,

Rick Lyon, UAI Executive Administrator

Thanks much to Rick L and the symposium planners. This UAI conference is less than a year away. Things are shaping up for the event. Take a look, Rick and the planning committee just announced the promotional video.

Greetings to all,

We want to share with you a new video that we have posted to the UAI website. This is a meeting of the 2011 Leadership Symposium team. Carolyn Kendall and Barbara Newsom gave a presentation on leadership and history that we think you will find inspiring and motivating. The video is broken into three segments so it downloads quickly.

Go to www.urantia-uai.org. Click on the word “Overview” at the top left of the page. In the left column, click on “Video interview with Barbara Newsom and Carolyn Kendall”. Or, click on this link to go directly to it: http://www.urantia-u...rg/history.html

We hope you enjoy this video as much as we enjoyed being there. Please share this with all your Urantia family and friends.

With love and friendship,
Rick Lyon
UAI Executive Administrator

Thanks much! Now that I have a goal to work toward, maybe I can save enough to actually go and attend.
