This came across my email today, and thought I would share it here for the information of our Forum members.

Dear Friends and Students of The Urantia Book,

This webinar will be a live and interacting training class about how to use The Urantia Book Study Group Directory, https://www.urantiastudygroup.org/, encouraging readers to use it. This Directory is a joint project of Urantia Foundation, Urantia Association International, and Urantia Book Fellowship.

The Urantia Book Study Group Directory (UBSGD) website is provided as a free and open service to readers of The Urantia Book to facilitate their connection with other readers for the purposes of collaborative study and spiritual fraternity, and to study group hosts to publicize their meetings toward this purpose.

I do have experience with Zoom. It is easy to use and free to download and use. I found this site to help you with that:

I suspect that many folks here have experience with study groups, me included.

I have attended study groups off-and-on since 1985, and hosted one in my home for several years in the 90s. Study groups are a great way to get to know The Urantia Book with other readers and have some fun, too.

There is often food involved...LOL!

What do you want to know? As Maryjo said, many here have experience with study groups. TruthBook is a form of study group. There are hundreds of groups around the world who meet together based on geographic proximity. The fastest growing form of study group is on-line zoom groups who meet face to face but are not geographically local. Some of those are language based or topical oriented or curriculum driven. Some groups do straight readings with Q&A or participant discussions.

A description of the UrantiaStudyGroup.org:

"The Urantia Book Study Group Directory (UBSGD) website is provided as a free and open service to readers of The Urantia Book to facilitate their connection with other readers for the purposes of collaborative study and spiritual fraternity, and to study group hosts to publicize their meetings toward this purpose.

This website is managed by an independent Oversight Team who is solely responsible for all aspects of the governance of the UBSGD directory and its related processes. While it is clearly the intention of the Oversite Team to serve the needs and interests of our sponsoring organizations, as well as Urantia Book readership at large, we are not formally a part of any of our sponsoring organizations.

Our team is comprised of a chairperson, representatives from each of our organizational partners (Urantia Foundation, The Urantia Book Fellowship, and Urantia Association International), and a website administrator."

Thanks! And yes indeed, we are a study group. Probably don't need another.
