The UR Lodge

UR LodgeThe Goure residence is where it all began, back in the ‘70’s, with the Goure family, friends and prayer groupsenvisioning a Light Center dedicated to prayers for the planet. In 1992, the Goure's home was purchased by United Research, Inc. so that it would remain an integral part of the UR mission.
