Sistine Chapel Site

This is totally awesome. It may get you dizzy if you are not careful.


Use your mouse to slide and roll for a very interesting full tour of the Sistine Chapel. This virtual tour of the Sistine  Chapel is incredible - apparently done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican .

On Saturday, December 4th, a group of longtime and new Urantia Book readers met at Geri Johnson's home in Singapore for an all-day study group.  The topic was "What is Effective Prayer?"  The group included Geri's regular study group members and some guests from far away.  Steve and I were there and Bill Tuffin flew down from Northern Thailand to join us.


We gathered early for Bali coffee and delicious pastries and enjoyed some time getting to know each other.   At 10 AM the study group began with readings and a discussion of various aspects of prayer.  Although we a focused on Paper 91, "The Evolution of Prayer," we let the Spirit of Truth guide our discussion and enjoyed the readings and the sharing of personal experience. 


For lunch Geri treated us all to a belated Thanksgiving feast including turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, candied sweet potatoes, broccoli au gratin and pumpkin and apple pies.  Steve and I were on the other side of the planet, one degree north of the equator, but it felt like home.


In the afternoon we continued the study with questions and answers about the concept of prayer in The Urantia Book.  It was a beautiful day and we all had a profound feeling of thankfulness for our gracious hostess and our many blessings, among which are the treasures of renewing old relationships and making new ones.


The Urantia Book Fellowship Announces

The Urantia Book Cover Contest


Uversa Press, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Urantia Book Fellowship, is embarking on a program to create a new cover for its two column, indexed version of The Urantia Book. The Uversa Press Committee is going to use the same method for choosing a cover as was used in choosing the Fellowship's logo several years ago. Basically, this is a contest for any and all artists who wish to design the new cover for the Uversa Press Urantia Book.  All cover design entries will be voted on by the General Council and eventually culled down to three finalists. The final three designs will then be voted on by the entire membership to determine the winner.


The timeline we are shooting for will give us a finished product by the end of this summer, in time to be used for our upcoming 4th printing.


All entries must be submitted by May 15, 2011.


Ideally, the cover should be free of iconic religious images, so it can appeal to all peoples of all races and all faiths.  Therefore, our main emphasis is being focused on a color scheme and graphic design that will grab a shopper's attention at the bookshelf, where usually only the spine of a book is facing outward. The idea is to get folks to pick up the book and take a look at it while browsing the shelf. It should be strong yet peaceful, commanding yet loving, bold yet simple.


Most of the written information on the Fellowship's present edition of The Urantia Book will remain on the next printing, although the wording, font and layout may differ somewhat.


Although our funds are quite limited and this is really a labor of love, we will be able to award $1,000 for the top three finalists and an additional $2,000 for the cover that is chosen to be used on the next printing.


If you are interested in submitting a design for the new cover whether it is yours or someone else's, please contact any of these members of the Uversa Press Committee and we'll be happy to go over the particulars and send you the guidelines and ground rules.

I am announcing a new web site,  It contains the recently completed third edition of my book, The Life and Teachings of Jesus. 

Larry Watkins along with my son Joshua and I have worked hard the last year to make it the best site we can. We have made it a top site for Google searches relating to Jesus. It already comes up at #10 (out of 5 million results) on Google search for teachings of Jesus!

 This is an ideal site for Jesus study. Here, collected in one place, are all the original teachings of Jesus as recorded in the Bible, and here also is his life, presented as it actually unfolded. It is simple, clear, and very easy to navigate. Every effort has been made to make as user friendly as possible. It has a search capability so you can easily find what Jesus said regarding any topic e.g.  "forgiveness".  It also contains a myriad of links. For example, every verse is linked to its appearance in the Bible. Each page is printer friendly and the entire book may be easily printed with several mouse clicks.

It is an ideal resource and teaching tool for Sunday School and Bible study. It is especially well-suited to ministers teaching about Jesus. Readers have reported enthusiastic response when it is used in Sunday School classes. And there are pastors from India who have discovered this site, translated it into their native language of Telugu, and are distributing tracts to the people. 

 I hope you will find it useful. 

You may contribute directly to this new expansion of the religion of Jesus by linking to this site. One of the primary ways google advances a site's ranking is by the number of other sites that are linked to it. So if you have any way of linking to this site it would contribute directly to our goal of making it the number one site for Jesus searches. Your help is most appreciated.

The project is being supported by UrantiaUniversity, The Urantia Book Fellowship, and readers interested in helping with the development of high-definition video background materials for Part 4 of The Urantia Book. 

A Salute to 


As of late last year, our friends at have either commissioned or obtained 17 paintings that depict the life and teachings of Jesus as portrayed in The Urantia Book. By the close of 2011 they expect to have at least 20 paintings in the collection. The one painting below was recently completed and depicts the scene of Jesus ministering to Ganid during a severe illness, while father Gonad looks on. They envision that someday this collection will be in a museum where people can view the paintings and put a head set on to hear the exact scenes being read from The Urantia Book, and when possible, the New Testament.




We salute for stalwartly holding up the truth, beauty and goodness of The Urantia Book, in creative and inspiring ways!


If you haven't done so already, we highly recommend that you sign up for Truthbook's free subscription Quote of the Day . Upon subscribing, you will receive in your email each morning an inspiring and meaningful quote from The Urantia Book paired with a beautiful image.


"The time is ripe to witness the figurative resurrection of the human Jesus from his burial tomb amidst the theological traditions and the religious dogmas of nineteen centuries. Jesus of Nazareth must not be longer sacrificed to even the splendid concept of the glorified Christ. What a transcendent service if, through this revelation, the Son of Man should be recovered from the tomb of traditional theology and be presented as the living Jesus to the church that bears his name, and to all other religions!" 196:1.2

IC'11 Pre-Conference Retreat

Contemplative Mercy

July 24-26

The focus of this summer's Pre-Conference Contemplative Prayer Retreat in Salt Lake City will be mercy and forgiveness.  The retreat will begin with dinner on Sunday, July 24th and end with a closing meditation before dinner on Tuesday, July 26th.


 Contemplative prayer is another way of understanding worship - the inward communion of the soul with the divine source of all Reality.  Out of that experience emerges a quality of love - and mercy is "love applied."  During the retreat we will share in the experience of contemplative prayer and engage in a conversation about the application of that love.

Join Gard Jameson and friends as we explore these topics and practical ways of dealing with the anger, the fear and the anxiety that stand between us and the manifestation of mercy.  You can register for the Pre-Conference Retreat at  The capacity of the retreat is 30 participants.
