  • Being Born Again - Spiritual Pregnancy and Birth

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 19 Mar, 2017

    Becoming a better person - and eventually an angel - is a process called “regeneration,” meaning: “re-birth.” In John chapter 3, Nicodemus was surprised and incredulous when Jesus told him this. Sometimes we can be surprised and incredulous about this process too. What do pregnancy, morning sickness, braxton hicks, transition, labor pains, contractions, and birth have to do with our spiritual growth? What does it mean to take our first spiritual breath as a spiritual newborn? | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Carried Away, Rescued, and Blessed

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 12 Mar, 2017

    In Genesis chapter 14, in a battle of 5 kings against 4 kings, Lot gets captured and carried away by Chedorlaomer, and Abram comes to his rescue. When they return, Melchizedek offers bread and wine and blessings. This confusing chapter describes the confusing nature of our spiritual struggles, and the blessings that the Lord brings on the other side of struggle. | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • How to Help People

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 5 Mar, 2017

    We all have needs, both physical & spiritual. We need to understand people's needs and fill them. Just as we give food to the hungry, water to the thirsty, etc., in a corresponding way we can identify and meet their spiritual needs. Matthew 25:31-46; Isaiah 58; NJHD 107 | By John Odhner, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Courage

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 19 Feb, 2017

    What is “courage”? This week we will talk about the fear that often comes up when we face resistance. Where do we find the courage to face our fears? We will look at the story of Deborah and Barak in Judges 4 and 5. In honor of Black History Month, I will also talk a little about Harriet Tubman's courage, and her similarities with Deborah the Judge. | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Resistance

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 12 Feb, 2017

    Why is it that when we start to choose something good in our life, we often end up facing resistance, discouragement, or conflict? Sometimes it might even feel like we’re being punished for doing something good. Right after the Lord was baptized by John, He faced temptation in the wilderness with the devil (see Matt 3:16-17, 4:1-11). This is our story as well. Why is this normal and to be expected? How can we maintain hope and positivity through all this? How does the Lord use these times to make us stronger? | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Curiosity

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 5 Feb, 2017

    Our curiosity is the spark that moves us forward in the creative process. To be curious is to be thirsty. Explore the story in John 4, where Jesus met a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well, and she asked about the water that would forever quench thirst. | By Jeremy Simons, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Beginning

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 29 Jan, 2017

    We are all created in the image of the Creator, and so we are all creators in our own ways. Our topic on that theme is “Beginning.” “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Beginning anything - natural or spiritual - can sometimes feel like the hardest part. What can we learn this week about beginning something new? | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • The Future of Spiritual Tourism

    Address - 27 Jan, 2017

    Swedenborg Birthday Address. A potential next step for the Internet's interest in Swedenborg. Introduction by Rev EH Carswell. Includes 17 min of comments. | By Curtis Childs, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • A Blossoming Stick

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 22 Jan, 2017

    The miracle of Aaron’s staff (in Numbers 17) bearing leaves, blossoms and ripe almonds is an image of the life of a person who is making an effort to be led by the Lord. This is a story is about the role of the Lord's Word in guiding our lives and how it affects what we think, say and do. | By Eric Carswell, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Finding Hope

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 8 Jan, 2017

    At times in our lives we see all the goodness and possibility we want. At other times we see only pain and suffering. In those harder times we need hope, something to cling to and to draw us upward. We'll talk about what the Lord says about finding hope, and creating patterns in our lives that support a hopeful attitude. "Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you who hope in Jehovah." (Psalm 31:24) "Once fear is removed hope is at hand." (AC 2694) | By Erik Buss, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall
