The DEEP DIVE Research Box
Are you interested in historic videos?
In constructing this site, we planned to include some digitized Videos of conferences, retreats and examples of the T/R (Transmitting-Receiving) process. These files take much space, however, and would slow down movement on the site. We believe there is limited interest in these presentations and the picture and sound quality is often poor. But they do connect the dots of research, seeing real people enjoying Teaching Mission camaraderie together.
Via Dropbox, we can transfer these videos to you. You must have an account. Then you will be an additional custodian of these historic materials. Send me an e-mail request from our Contact page.

ANGEL NIGHT. TM members presented two community programs in Spokane, WA, and one in Coeur d’Alene, ID, in the early 90’s. Speakers discussed the phenomenon in which they were participating, encouraged personal Stillness time for worship, prayer and up reach connection, and transmitted several celestial teachers. These participants have published thousands of pages of transcripts in our archives with an array of celestial teachers.
ANGEL NIGHT presentation for this video, by Simeon, a long time transmitter and facilitator in the Teaching Mission. This is how he introduced audiences to the TM phenomenon in 1996.
URANTIA BOOK Fellowship’s 1999 international gathering in Vancouver included a panel discussion about the new Transmitting-Receiving phenomenon. This is unedited, raw footage with mediocre light and sound, but it has value as an historic document showing the real human participants and hearing their ideas and insights.
AFTER HOURS T/R at the Vancouver conference.

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."
There is a critical question in the minds of humans today as to whether we can converse with celestial personalities, and whether they bring spiritual insights that will assist us in our growth. Individuals have to answer this question and many more in life for themselves. I have been involved with Teaching Mission since 1991 and hear are a few of the transmissions that I have personally given at group meetings in the Cincinnati area and at national TeaM gatherings. They are a small part o f the tens of thousands of pages now representing the work of a wave of celestial teachers. — Jim Cleveland

Five Spiritual Friends and their Music Legacy
Over years of attending Urantia Book and Teaching Mission conferences, I've heard some very gifted singers and songwriters. Some of them have passed on, leaving a legacy of great songs and performances. This album is a tribute intended as a Legacy.
Lily Fraser honed her vocal skills as a performer and beer wench at Renaissance Fairs. Her strong voice never misses a note and she embellishes with guitar and harp. We've collected seven tracks though she never had a record label. She was kind, compassionate, yet a fearless stand-up champion for justice. She cared courageously for her fallen companion while ill herself. There is a special place in Heaven...
Hal Bynum was a larger than life icon in Nashville music, author of hit songs and a bonafide booze-fueled "hell-raiser." Then he met "Rebecca" in Utah, a gifted transmitter and icon in the Urantia-based Teaching Mission. They married and he began recording passionate, poetic down-home stories, such as these three.
Charley Packard devoted his young years to playing with famous rock bands. He then settled into the mountains of his native Idaho to play music with his friends and marry over a thousand of them. He became a community treasure, a good and caring man with a great gift that he always shared. There was a city-wide memorial when he passed. Here are four classics.
Cinde Borup joined Beth Pederson to perform for 28 years as Beth & Cinde/Wild Roses. Together with other talented Idaho performers, they produced several well-crafted CD's. Her soaring voice blends with beautiful arrangements in the four classics we feature. Cinde passed and Beth continues performing, with a new project slated for the months ahead.
Rick Giles had a theology degree and was a cabinet-maker. He was also a prolific Teaching Mission transmitter in a community of Idaho friends. He passed suddenly from a brain aneurysm a few years ago. Kathy Giles and other friends carry on as a steadfast Teaching Mission group. We discovered an upbeat track that captures a bit of their spiritual zeal.
I've included a couple of my lyrical poems that explore our eternal search for beauty and goodness. "Up To Green" seeks a wondrous mountain spirit.
These artists exemplify both beauty and goodness. These artists felt the spirit and shared it. They were idealists who proclaimed values and performers who achieved excellence.
