  • The Middling Goodness of Laban

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 23 Jul, 2017

    In the middle of the story of Jacob, he spends a significant amount of time in Haran with his uncle Laban. Was it a good thing or a bad thing that Jacob lived with Laban for so long? “Laban” symbolizes “mediate good” or “middling goodness” in the middle of our own spiritual journeys. He represents our mixed motivations; the times when we do good things for selfish reasons. Is that a good thing or a bad thing for us? | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 16 Jul, 2017

    On the Holy City New Jerusalem there are twelve gates facing four different directions (Revelation 21:12-13). Twelve different ways into the City.

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 28 May, 2017

    In Daniel chapter 5 there is a story about a mysterious hand which writes a message on king Belshazzar’s wall: "Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin." Daniel interprets the message for the king.

  • Honoring Our Mothers

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 14 May, 2017

    New Church theology tells us that there are many different “mothers” we can honor in our lives, including: actual mothers, mother figures, the Church, and the Lord as to Divine Wisdom (see Doctrine of Sacred Scripture 67). We’ll look at the story of Moses’ Mom, and Pharaoh’s daughter (Exodus 2). This service will feature women lay readers. | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Holy Bread or Common Bread?

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 30 Apr, 2017

Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Easter - Choose Life!

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 16 Apr, 2017

    The story of the Lord rising from the tomb on Easter morning gives us a wonderful picture of the reality of life after death. But this reality is not always easy to believe in. What are the various “deaths” that we experience in our lives, and how can the Easter story give us faith and hope that there will be “life” after them? | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Palm Sunday - Clothes on the Road

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 9 Apr, 2017

  • 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
