Miranda ClendeningAfter a lot of prayer and conopmelatitn and discussion amongst friends and family it occurs to me that creating and fostering a social organization that fosters the UB teachings and values without requiring strict, specific beliefs can definitely be done very, very well as an interfaith organization. I have even asked as many people as I could in the last few days if they would feel comfortable being a part of an interfaith organization that fully accepts one's own beliefs and fosters everyone's own personal religious journey that could help provide them with community, support, and fellowship with a common goal of helping each other become the most loving people possible and providing opportunities for group service projects and ways to develop experiential wisdom. I have gotten a very positive response from pretty much everyone I asked who I know are from different religious faiths and very different walks of life. So, I do TRULY believe that developing a social organization that we label as interfaith is one thing we should be trying to do!On the other hand though, there is another issue here as well What about those of us that do believe the pretty authoritative text in the Urantia Book to be 90-100% true and want to find others to pursue the very scholarly in depth study of a very difficult text which is hard to do if many of your group don't read or agree as much with the book? There has to be 2 different subjects we are talking about here.These are my thoughts. PLEASE comment as much as possible!As always, PEACE, LOVE, and BLESSINGS, Miranda
