The Mind, Body and Spirit Church

"Our goal includes building bridges between various factions so that everyone can work together as a family."

Mind, Body & Spirit, Inc. was formed to formalize the relationship of the Urantia Book readers in Tallahassee, Florida. Although the group initially gathered to read the Urantia Book, we were really put into high gear when for ten years we were taught by a celestial teacher named “Will” who encouraged us to spend time with God every day, to provide selfless service and to treat everyone like our brother or sister. [Read more of this story in Fred Harris's online book, Correcting Time]. These spiritual lessons were the springboard for much of what we have done thereafter. 

People affiliated with MBS have come and gone over the years, but presently the board and members are Paula Sutton, Helen Luke, Judy Langston, Linda MacDonald, Anne Bowman, Steffani Murray, and Fred Harris.  MBS is also affiliated with The Association for Light and Life.


Just a few of the things that Mind, Body, and Spirit have sponsored or supported over the years:

1.  We sponsored the Network of the Heart gathering at a Methodist retreat center in Fayetteville, Arkansas,in 1994.

center within2. We edited and published (with Byron Belitsos and Elianne Obadia)
The Center Within, Lessons from the Heart of the Urantia Revelation.

3. We sponsored eight years of Celestial Nights, February gatherings of our friends at the beaches of North Florida. Read about and relive CN2003 and CN2008.

4. We built a Temple to the Father in the woods near Tallahassee.

5. Every week we publish a Urantia Book quote in the local newspaper along with an invitation to the public to attend our meetings (and some did).  We didn’t know if anyone was reading them, but when we stopped for a few weeks, we heard from some people that they missed seeing them, so we continued.  You never know.

6. MBS is a church recognized by the IRS and contributions to MBS are tax deductible. As a result, we have raised funds and contributed funds to many different projects, including:
