Hello, I am a Certified Public Accountant licensed in Florida and New Jersey. I attended Rutgers University and earned an MBA in professional accounting in 1978. I have been practicing public accounting since then, forming Barnes and Cohen, CPA's in Florida in 1990. Currently, I am President of Barnes and Cohen, CPA's, and devote my professional time to solving clients’ tax, accounting and financial problems.
I have been married for over 31 years to Judi. We have three adult children who have earned college degrees in Environmental Science, Statistics, and Economics, respectively. I was a musician during high school and college and currently write and record songs about accountants, plus songs about my faith in God, Michael and the Correcting Time.
I was first introduced to The Urantia Book in February, 1974, when I received it as a birthday present from my sister. Intrigued, I read the Papers with a sense of wonder and excitement, finding new meaning the more that they were read. Each time I found a new concept that rang true to my sensibilities, I would find even more new concepts.
Leadings from my Father Fragment led to my discovery of the Teaching Mission on January 1, 2009, a day not to be forgotten. Since then, I have been involved in outreach with other Urantia Book, yearning to learn more from my brothers and sisters on this mortal sphere, and eager to share my knowledge with my brethren who are attempting to do the will of the Father.
I am delighted to be of service to anyone who asks, knowing that we both have something to learn and something to share with each other. My favorite expression is: "Aim at nothing, and you will surely hit it." I now lovingly aim to serve my brothers, sisters, Christ Michael and the Father.
