Historical Consciousness and the Divine Plan

by Douglas Martin

2010
About: This series of talks — originally presented by Mr. Douglas Martin in Canada, the United States, and a number of nations in Europe, Asia and Latin America — has been redeveloped to facilitate both individual exploration and group study. Drawing on his skills as a speaker and storyteller, and his training as a historian, Mr. Martin takes us on a journey that begins with the implications of humanity's failure to grasp the evolutionary nature of religion. In this context, he discusses the Tablets of the Divine Plan and our capacity to respond to its requirements, now embodied in the several Plans that have been called forth by the Universal House of Justice.
