Howard has his own reasons for making a commitment to an organization that means so much to so many. In these 30 minutes you will here from Howard. Why he is so devoted to the CCFA and the many ways that you can participate in the activities that will help raise money and awareness and just may make you healthier in the process.

The original concept for UrantiaUniversity envisioned an online school that would offer a step-by-step, comprehensive personal study program of each paper in The Urantia Book with opportunities for person-to-person contact and collective study.
In the fall of 2009 a Board of Trustees formed to initiate the process of incorporating UrantiaUniversity and to develop and solidify the legal, educational and technological foundation of the organization. Before long, UrantiaUniversity, Inc. was officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization, exempt from Federal income tax under section 503(c)(3).
The vision of UrantiaUniversity, Inc. has since evolved to not only help serious students to explore, discern, and actualize the cosmic truth and knowledge in The Urantia Book, but also to encourage research and study in the many related disciplines of science, cosmology, religion, philosophy, and the social sciences for the purpose of illuminating, augmenting and expounding the connections between the content of The Urantia Book and these fields of human knowledge. Beyond these, UrantiaUniversity’s mission is built on developing advanced philosophers, teachers and leaders with cosmic ideals who are capable of effectively meeting the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.
UrantiaUniversity recently launched their first online class: A General Introduction to The Urantia Book, by way of a thumbnail sketch, essays to introduce The Urantia Book to the inquisitive new or veteran reader, taught by our own Andre Radatus. This first class of 50 students filled up within weeks, but this is just the beginning and there are more great classes to come. Please join us as we discuss the origins, mission and future plans of UrantiaUniversity with Andre, John and Elizabeth Callahan and other key pioneers in this unprecedented undertaking and help us celebrate this amazing milestone with them.

Sometimes you just have to change horses in midstream. Succession, like death, comes knocking at the most inconvenient times. Host Bart Jackson brings on as featured guest Pastor Dave Davis, Chair of the Trustees of the Presbyterian Foundation. This fiscal arm for all the Presbyterian churches in the US raises, cajoles, invests, sets mission strategies for, and distributes its $60 million dollars annually to broadly enhance the faith and better the lives of folks worldwide. From aiding a new Palestinian business in the ancient city of Jericho to refurbishing a clergy retirement home in Pennsylvania, this group makes the decisions and makes sure it happens effectively. Recently, after eight years on the board, Pastor Davis is stepping down and passing the torch to another chairperson. Despite some unsettling times in the church and contended decisions, Foundation CEO Tom Taylor is taking this change with the calm confidence of a Christian with four aces. Dave explains why, and provides tips for a smooth changing of the management.
