URANTIA PHILOSOPHY OF LIVING:
From the 2,196 pages of the Urantia Book, Robert Sarmast has written and developed a significant document that synthesizes much of the book's advice. Thanks to Paula Thompson at the Urantia Fellowship for sharing, and thanks to Robert for this exemplary work. Well-known and respected in the Urantia movement, Robert has led two research expeditions into the Mediterranean Sea in search of the second Garden of Eden; a third expedition is being planned if donations can support it.

URANTIA history includes a dynamic relationship with Vern Grimsley, a global radio personality and orator, who established the Spiritual Renaissance Institute in Clayton, CA, with a strong Urantia-based Jesus message. Here is a document relating to his broadcasts and lectures. (7)
Grimsley was strongly attacked in 1983-84 by a clique within Urantia for receiving ‘messages’ related to a possible nuclear strike. The threat was actually real. This was said to be a threat to the image of Urantia as a ‘doomsday cult’ inflicted by New Age fantasy. He was also accused of bootlegging the book by not mentioning it in his Jesus of Urantia sermons. Turrmoil ensued within the Family of God volunteers at the Institute and it eventually dissolved. Here in 1984, Grimsley explains his support of the “no publicity” Urantia policy to explain why the book itself was not touted from the podium. (2)
A letter from Grimsley to Clyde Bedell in November, 1984, explaining the realities around the messages controversy over the past year. (3)
Vern celebrates his many years with the Global Broadcasting Network in 1989. (4) He preached the values of the Urantia Book throughout his career.
The GALILEAN, an essay from Vern in 1993, on the incarnation of Jesus on our planet, shared with Mo Seigel, a Urantia Foundation trustee and founder of Celestial Seasonings Tea. Mo supported Vern in Boulder, CO, and once noted that there was room for all residents in their civil defense shelters. (5)

JESUS OF URANTIA: In His Own Words Readings from the Jesus papers of the Urantia Book by Jim Cleveland and Stephanie Gjerde, Interwoven musical tracks with bass, mandolin, and violin by Mark Austin and friends.
The Urantia Papers comprise some 2,100 pages of epochal revelation that synthesizes science, philosophy and religion on our planet of Urantia. It elaborately describes the nature of God, the universe of universes and our roles as ascending mortals of time and space in a grand design of education and ascension.
These papers are published by both the Urantia Foundation and the Urantia Fellowship and the original text is downloadable at www.lightandlife.com.
Having studied these papers for many years, Mark and I are particularly inspired by part iv, which re-states the incarnation of Jesus on our planet and presents an enlightened and expanded Jesusonian message that reflects the Universal Father's Be Ye Perfect plan.
Here, I've attempted to provide a bare overview of the Jesus mission and some of his key messages relating to mankind's most frequent spiritual questions. All passages are direct quotes from Jesus in the Urantia Papers. I am joined by the beautiful narrations of Stephanie Gjerde of Austin, TX.
To my efforts, Mark has composed and added two joyful suites of instrumental music with an all-star combo of Dallas musicians on guitar, violin, mandolin and congas.
We hope you'll enjoy and be inspired by the incredible life of Jesus and his cosmic wisdom, and will be encouraged to read The Urantia Book, to visit us at www.lightandlife.com, and enjoy your own "Exploration of the Spiritual Universe."
