  • Why Heaven and Hell are Relevant Today - Part 1 Heaven

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 16 Jul, 2017

    Heaven and hell can seem like fuzzy, distant, old-fashioned ideas - something from a different era, like fairytales with heroes and monsters. A lot of people today aren't sure that heaven and hell even exist and those that do think they exist often think of them as something that will only be relevant later in life, when they're getting ready to die. The New Church perspective is that heaven and hell are realities that we deal with every day and that what we believe about them can have a profound impact on our lives. Come and hear the New Church perspective on heaven this Sunday. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 25 Jun, 2017

    "The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself. 'God, I thank You that I am not like other men - extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector." (Luke 18:11) "And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God be merciful to me a sinner!" (Luke 18:13) | By Malcolm G. Smith, Bryn Athyn Cathedral

  • An Open Invitation - Part 2: The Misled and the Willfully Ignorant

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 4 Jun, 2017

    The letters to the seven churches in the book of Revelation reveal seven different kinds of people that the Lord calls to be part of His church - their good qualities and their potentially fatal flaws. This Sunday evening, in Part 2 of this series, we're talking about people who do good things but lack a true understanding, either because they're in false thinking or because they can't be bothered to think about what's true. Come and see what the Lord has to say to people like this. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • 6 Ways the Jewish Ingathering is Relevant Today

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 21 May, 2017

    "O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good for His mercy is forever." This Sunday the topic for the service will the harvest and gratitude. To celebrate this important topic we are inviting all children to bring fruit and vegetables up to the altar at the beginning of the service.

Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Finding Jesus in the Life of Abraham, Part 2

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 8 May, 2017

    This Sunday evening we'll be exploring a difficult story—the story of Abraham bargaining with God and asking Him if He will still destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if even just a few good people are there. The teachings of the New Church say that, in this strange and somewhat disturbing story, we can actually find a glimpse into the heart and mind of Jesus Christ when He was in this world and gain a better understanding of His incredible love for people who are trapped in evil. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • The Hazards and Blessings of Comparing our Spiritual Lives with Others

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 23 Apr, 2017

    One of the ways we evaluate how we are doing spiritually is by comparing ourselves to how other people seem to be doing. This can be a positive thing: being in community with other people who are striving to uphold the same values as us can inspire and encourage us to do better. And it can be a negative thing: comparing ourselves with other people can lead us to be envious or judgmental or it can even lead us to the absurd situation of trying to prove that we're more spiritual than other people. Let's talk about how the Lord can help us to deal with these challenging dynamics. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Mindful Communication Challenge - 5 Are You Willing?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 26 Mar, 2017

    In our last service of the Mindful Communication Challenge program we're going to be looking at the question that underlies all the different ways of improving our communication that we've talked about: am I willing? Am I willing to try to improve how I communicate? Am I willing to put in the work that it will take to change the way I typically act? So.... are you willing? And if the answer (honestly) is no, what do you do about that? | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Mindful Communication Challenge - 3 - Is it Kind?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 12 Mar, 2017

    Communication well takes more than just figuring out if what we want to say is true; we also need to go deeper and ask, "Is it kind?" Do I want to say this because I love and care about this person or is it something else? These questions are often hard to answer but learning how to pay attention to our motivations is an essential piece of learning how to communicate better. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Mindful Communication Challenge - 1 - Am I Listening?

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 27 Feb, 2017

    This Sunday we have the first topic of the Mindful Communication Challenge program: listening. As the person talking, really feeling heard by someone can mean a lot to us. As the listener, there are a lot of things that can get in the way of our being able to listen fully. Let's learn from the Lord about how to get better at listening to Him and to other people. | By Malcolm G. Smith, Westville, RSA

  • Watching our Words
