Attached is a roster of the General Council, officers and committees of the Urantia Brotherhood, including the newly elected members.

The third Triennial Delegate Assembly was held on July 31 and August 1 at 533 Diversey Parkway, Chicago. All societies were presented by their respective delegates and alternates as follows:

First Urantia Society: Arthur M. Burch and Martin W. Myers
First Urantia Society of Los Angeles: Jeffrey Bedell and Julia K. Fenderson
Urantia Society of Glenview: Harry E. Rowley and Bernard Burton
First Urantia Society of Oklahoma: Berkeley Elliott and Frankie B. Goodman

First Urantia Society of Ft.Wayne, Ind: Meredith J. Sprunger and K. David Schlundt
First Urantia Society of Wenatchee: Lewis A. Clark and Alice L. Clark

At 10 a.m. Friday July 31 the Assembly convened in formal session. Alvin L. Kulieke, President of Urantia Brotherhood, introduced the vice president, Miss E.L. Christensen, who gave the address of welcome. This was followed by Mr. Kulieke's keynote address. Then followed the reports of the officers, committee chairmen, and field representatives, covering the period from 1967 to 1970.

In the afternoon while the committees were in session some 80 members had the pleasure of listening to the very interesting informal reports of the work and activities of the various societies and study groups. In the evening members and their friends enjoyed a lovely reception given by Miss Christensen in her home.

On Saturday morning the Assembly reconvened. The Committee on Nominations presented its list of suggested councilors for election, and the election was held. The highlight of the Saturday afternoon program was a splendid address by Mr. Vern B. Grimsley of Berkeley, California. Mr. Grimsley broadcasts on radio a very interesting and inspiring program from Berkeley entitled "The Family of God."

The Urantia Brotherhood School started its fall seminar sessions on Oct. 7. These sessions are conducted by Dean Alvin Kulieke every Wednesday night for 9 weeks. The subject this fall is the "Morontia Life." No academic credit is given, but the discussions are very interesting and everybody is welcome.

Sales of the Urantia Book are fast exhausting the second printing. The Urantia Foundation advises that the third printing is now in process and will be ready early in 1971.

"All this concept of atonement and sacrificial salvation is rooted and grounded in selfishness. Jesus taught that service to one's fellows is the highest concept of the brotherhood of spirit believers. Salvation should be taken for granted by those who believe in the fatherhood of God. The believer's chief concern should not be the selfish desire for personal salvation but rather the unselfish urge to love and, therefore, serve one's fellows even as Jesus loved and served mortal men." P. 2017
