New Member arrival on 1/7/18
« on: January 07, 2018, 05:33:34 PM »

I am stepping up to get on board this cruise ship and introduce myself to this delightful
community....I think the journey is well worth the price of admission....and with such good company aboard, I'm certain it will be enjoyable to participate....

Have read some of the intros...it is amazing to see the variety of communication here ....many different paths coming together here....there's a high level of dedication here...I feel hopeful here  in this community...


About me:
I grew up in a Christian Church environment...didn't make too much trouble, but I know my loving parents were concerned at times....neither they nor I knew how to conduct ourselves on this confusing planet, but they did a pretty good job....

I was introduced to TUB by a next door neighbor....I didn't understand it at first but when I caught on to it, I've been reading it now for 20 yrs....

At 19, after 2 yrs of college and not knowing what to do, went on a surfing trip and ended up as a student missionary....came back and took more college, still not knowing what to do....ended up going to medical school...now I have stuff to do whether I like it or not...

...in college one thing I always did and still do, read a lot of philosophy, psychology, etc to understand the world, and found I couldn't understand it very well......

Now that I've been reading the UB for 20 yrs,  I'm getting some insight...metaphysics is a mess, as is the rest of the planet....BUT, things have changed....we're out of quarantine!!!...I'm finding out about it just now....

.....so the image in my mind is like the faces I see in the photos when Paris was liberated in WWII.... (I wasn't born then so I don't have that one as a personal experience, but it must have been wildly grand)...

So long for now...
RichardB

Greetings Richard B!

You have come on board our cruise ship.   This is not a ship of fools although some of us may be misguided.   All you need is the Urantia Book and your sense of humor.  Do not lose either of them!  

We are sailing into a hurricane but do not worry.   Our Captain is Michael of Nebadon.   Since this is a family cruise, I wish to take this opportunity to welcome you into our family.   Welcome aboard, Richard!........................Allie

I'm trying to orient myself here,  I'm not sure where to go on here, there's so many directions to go in all at once...
I'll gradually have to work on my communication skills...sailing into a hurricane?...I get seasick when its calm...adapt and overcome, right?...pass the scopalamine please...

Good Morning Richard,

Please don't put any pressure on yourself as far as posting is concerned.   There is no requirement about the frequency of writing a message.   Sometimes it is best to just sit back in your deck chair and watch where this ship is headed.  

By the way, Scopolamine will not be needed.  

Have a good day, Richard!..................................Allie
