FELLOWSHIP'S IC'08 VENUE CONFIRMED

Dear Friends;

The Fellowship's next International Conference - IC'08 - will be held from July 2-6, 2008 in Los Angeles, California at the campus of UCLA.  Urantia Book readers from all around the world will come together for fellowship and worship as we explore the conference theme "The Thrill of Loving Service."



IC'08 will focus on loving service.  So much is needed in so many places.  An exciting, creative, experiential program is planned for adults and children of all ages. We all experience the privilege and honor of service. Let's multiply our efforts as we learn from and inspire each other.

 
We invite you to join this journey of loving service at IC'08.  If you wish to offer a workshop or help facilitate the conference, please contact the conference team at  IC2008@sover.org

 
In fellowship,

Susan Cook and the IC'08 team

IC08 Site Visit

During the month of July the IC08 planning committee visited the UCLA conference venue.  They spent four days becoming familiar with the campus and working on plans for what is already shaping up to be perhaps the best international conference The Fellowship has ever sponsored.   

Susan Cook, conference chair, writes:

We met with our UCLA conference coordinator several times during our stay and were able to hone our needs on the spot. We have read your survey responses from past conferences and are trying our best to meet your needs. You asked for less walking, more time for fellowship, and fewer concurrent workshops. I believe we will be able to make this happen for you.

As far as walking is concerned, all of the plenaries, except the first day, will be in the same building where all the other workshops will be held. The youth programs will be in the same building! It's a pretty big building. And our sleeping rooms are just two minutes walk to the workshop AND the cafeteria! 

We are planning working workshops. We'll have lectures as well but our focus is on service: teaching service, learning about service, and doing service. Our hope is to walk around this conference and hear you planning and using your imagination about the ways you can serve. We're giving you plenty of fellowship time to catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and discuss service work.

The cafeteria is huge and will accommodate all of us. There are many food stations to accommodate all diets and places to eat other than the cafeteria that include Mexican, Sbarro's Italian, Taco Bell, Panda Express Chinese and a very nice salad bar. Just outside the campus is an area called Westwood with restaurants galore.

The campus is beautiful with colorful flowers everywhere. There are two swimming pools for our use. It's a sprawling campus - runners will enjoy it very much.

Tom Choquette and Fred Harris are sailing with the older kids to Catalina Island and invite parents and friends to the island on our free day which is July 4th. The Jerusalem Market Place has a perfect room and we have two other rooms for younger children and infants.

More information will be coming out very soon. The conference committee is very excited and is dedicated to making an awesome conference experience for you.

Susan Cook, IC08 Conference Chair

IC08 Reminder

“If you would share the Master's joy, you must share his love. And to share his love means that you have shared his service. Such an experience of love does not deliver you from the difficulties of this world; it does not create a new world, but it most certainly does make the old world new.”  [180:1.5]

Come and let us make this old world new and find the “Thrill of Loving Service” in our own lives.

Would you consider studying and experiencing the topic of service for a workshop at the upcoming 2008 International Conference?  Would you come with us next July and explore together how we might grow in the experience of loving service?

Our conference takes place in Los Angeles, California at the beautiful UCLA campus on July 2nd to the 6th, 2008.

Visit our website at www.IC08.org or contact the programming committee at IC2008@sover.net

Service starts now.
