“While religious, social, and educational institutions are all essential to the survival of cultural civilization, the family is the master civilizer. A child learns most of the essentials of life from his family and the neighbors.”
-The Urantia Book, 82:0.2.
And yet, is this the philosophy that dominates civilizations worldwide?
Urantia Family Life is a community and team of volunteer service workers with a shared enthusiasm for uplifting family life culture through the lens of the fifth epochal revelation (as manifest in the papers of The Urantia Book). It is our mission to advocate for the value of the family and the home; and to support parents and children in their endeavors to grow Godward and apply the teachings of the fifth epochal revelation in daily life.
Do you see a need for improved family and home culture in this world?
Are you a parent who wants support for yourself and/or your child in developing a personal relationship with God?
Are you able and willing to provide support to parents and/or children in developing a personal relationship with God?
Are you willing to actively put into practice the teachings of the Urantia Book?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, welcome to the neighborhood. 🙂
