QUARTERLY NEWS LETTER FROM
Summary of Events of the Third Quarter 1956
Charter No. 2 has been granted to the group in California consisting primarily of a number of old Forumites. This new society will be known as the West Coast Urantia Society of Los Angeles. We are happy to welcome this group as fellow members of Urantia Brotherhood.
On October 1, 1956, the Executive Committee completed the organization of the Urantia Brotherhood Corporation, a corporation under the laws of Illinois not for profit. All such organizations as the Urantia Brotherhood have such a corporation which enables them to transact business and carry on numerous activities that a purely voluntary association or brotherhood would not be able to perform.
The custodians of the book report that approximately 2,250 books have been disseminated. One hundred books have been sent to libraries all over the British Commonwealth by the Foreign Extension Committee.
Dr. William S. Sadler reports that the Urantia Brotherhood School opened September 19 when 71 persons enrolled in the two courses (Doctrinal and Topical) as students and auditors. He has prepared the first of four books on Urantia Doctrine, or the Theology of The Urantia Book, and this one is ready for distribution. This is the text used in the Urantia Brotherhood School and anyone interested can purchase it for his own use for $5.00.
On Sunday, September 30, 1956, the First Urantia Society which was organized last June, held its first meeting. Meetings will continue every Sunday at 3:00 PM.
Al Dyon has been appointed to fill the vacancy on the Committee of Education left by Jim Mills whose circumstances made it necessary for him to resign.
A beautiful Memorial Service was conducted by Edmond F. J. Kulieke, Sunday, September 2, for Wilfred C. Kellogg, who had passed away a few days previously. Appropriate passages were read from The Urantia Book. We deeply regret the departure of our friend. His memory will ever be an inspiration to all of us.
