Although there are many good reasons to develop a center, the most compelling reason is that the Master asked us to go out with the good news that we are all sons and daughters of a loving God. Shouldn't the development of a facility where we can prepare new messengers be a top priority? We, as readers of the Urantia Book, have a new and unique revelation of truth, but have only begun to carry that message into the world. The UB tells us:
"...the spiritual renaissance must await the coming of these new teachers of Jesus’ religion who will be exclusively devoted to the spiritual regeneration of men. And then will these spirit-born souls quickly supply the leadership and inspiration requisite for the social, moral, economic, and political reorganization of the world." Paper 195:9:4
The project we envision will serve as a spiritual center that is Urantia-based yet welcoming to people of all faiths. It will also serve as a retreat center, an environmentally sustainable garden community, and a facility for preparing new messengers and fostering spiritual leadership. We seek to create a community that is God centered and love-based that will further each member's union with God within. The property can be used for many UB affiliated activities and could potentially become a site for a new Garden, a museum of art and religion, and a school of religion based on the principles of Urmia.
