New Slogan Contest For Fellowship
Uversa Press, a wholly owned
subsidiary of The Fellowship, is embarking on a program to create a new
slogan as part of the Fellowship's identifying mark. Presently our
slogan is "Cultivating the Spirit of Religion", and we are asking for
you to help us come up with a better one. We are going to use the same
method of choosing a new slogan as we did in choosing our new cover and
new logo several years ago. Basically, all slogan entries will be voted
on by the General Council and culled down to 3 finalists. Then these
will be voted on by the entire membership to determine the winner.
We are looking for a slogan
that best describes the Fellowship and its purpose. Your entry should be
no more than 7 words and preferably less. We hope our new slogan will
be strong and peaceful; commanding and loving; bold and simple. Each
person is only allowed to submit 3 slogans.
Although our funds are quite
limited and this is really a labor of love, we will be able to award
$500 for the top 3 finalists and an additional $500 for the slogan that
Please send your slogans in an email to Paula Thompson at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone can enter. All
entries must be submitted by 5 pm MDT on Friday May 24, 2013. If two or
more people submit the same slogan, the first person to submit that
slogan will be entered into this contest.
We look forward to receiving your creative slogans.

The Internet Gazer's Guide to
The Urantia Book
The Urantia Book
Fellowship's 2013 Summer Study Session at Techny Towers will feature an
"outreach service" strand as part of our seminar's theme "Our Gift to God the Father: Service to the Supreme". One of the featured workshops is "The Internet Gazer's Guide to The Urantia Book."
Would you like to learn about existing, easy-to-use, internet
resources and services that can serve your personal study and research
of The Urantia Book along with other internet services that can be used for outreach and dissemination? This "low tech" workshop will include:
- An overview of some important Urantia Book websites and their most interesting features;
- Urantia Book resources that should be at your fingertips;
- Suggestions for how YOU can disseminate The Urantia Book using existing internet services; and
- A suggestion box so that you can share your ideas on expanding existing internet services, or even creating new ones.
Join fellow Urantia Book readers
this summer at Techny Towers from July 10 - 14 for the best Summer
Study Session ever! For more information and to register, go to:
Urantia Book Outreach
Healthy Living Expo Long Beach, California
March 1-3, 2013
Over the weekend of March 1-3, The Urantia Book Fellowship
set up an outreach booth at the Healthy Living Expo. Many of the booths
had health related products and services ranging from natural dentistry
and local organic growers to nutritional items. There were also a few
booths by local religious and new thought communities like Buddhism and
The attendance was strong over the three days. We rarely got much of a break in the action.
We always look forward
to introducing young people to the book and we were not disappointed at
this event. We were overjoyed to inspire many young minds to take up
reading The Urantia Book. Josh, (23) pictured
with his mother, has already responded about how much he is enjoying
reading his new book. He said he has spent a year looking for a better
source of truth.
All told, we sold and/or gifted 54 Urantia Books in Long Beach and had a great time doing it.
Thanks goes to all of
you that support the work of the Outreach Committee and make this
service to our fellows possible, be it with dollars, votes or smiles.
If you would like to do some outreach with the book in your area, contact the Fellowship's Outreach Committee and let us know.
