  • 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

  • An Open Invitation, Part 1: Goodness vs. Rightness

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 28 May, 2017

    What does it take to be part of the New Church? Being part of the New Church takes many forms but at heart it is all about looking to the Lord and repenting of evils. As we approach the celebration of the New Church's birth in June, we will explore how we look to the Lord and repent, and so become part of His Church. Specifically we will explore the letters to the seven churches, each of which reveals some new quality of the Lord and some new evil that we can work on. This Sunday we will look at the letter to the Church in Ephesus, which urges those who put great weight in being right to focus more on doing good. | By Rev. Joel C Glenn , Westville, RSA

  • The Writing is on the Wall

    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. What are the times when we see the “writing on the wall” in our own lives? What does it mean? And what should we do? | By Solomon J. Keal, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Laying Down Your Soul For Your Friends

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 28 May, 2017

    "Greater love has no one than this, than one lay down his soul for his friends." (John 15:13) In this sermon I focus on two words that help us gain a new appreciation for this familiar adage: "soul" and "friends." What would you be willing to lay down your soul for? | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • Rest in the Lord

  • 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

  • Learning to See the Lord

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 26 Mar, 2017

    The Lord healed a man who had been blind from birth by putting clay on his eyes and sending him to wash in the pool of Siloam. The man did as the Lord told him, even though he didn't know who the Lord was, and was able to see. How can we learn from this blind man's example and learn to see clearly? | By Coleman S. Glenn, Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Becoming Whole and Clean

    Worship Service: Sermon only - 19 Mar, 2017

    The Lord washed His disciples' feet as a symbolic way of showing us that we need to focus on avoiding any areas of filth in the way we live our conscious lives. In other words, we need to work on being an outwardly cleaner person so that the Lord can subsequently cleanse us on the level of our spirit. | By Garry Walsh, Phoenix, AZ

  • Abram & Lot (Part 2) -Lot is Separated

    Worship Service: Childrens Talk & Adult Sermon - 19 Mar, 2017

    Today is part two of a two part series on Abram and Lot. In Genesis chapter twelve, Jehovah tells Abram to get out of his country and to leave his father's house. As Abram begins his journey to a new land Lot (his nephew) comes with him. Last week we learned that Lot represents the more sensual/external part of us - The part of us that learns various facts and experiences various affections based on the input we receive through our physical senses. Lot lived with Abram and began this journey with him, showing us that this sensual/external part of us is useful and important! The Lord wants us to use our physical senses to gather in much information and good experiences. These external ideas and affections we receive early in life act as vessels for the more spiritual truths and affections the Lord is leading us towards. In today's story both Abram and Lot have enlarged their possessions. The land can no longer support them both, and strife is arising between their herdsmen. Abram asks Lot to separate from him. This separation between Abram and Lot wonderfully represents a time in our own regeneration when we must separate ourselves from two kinds of external things: 1. Empty memory knowledges we learned in childhood. 2. Pleasures from the selfish and worldly loves we favor. While it is important to separate ourselves form certain unhelpful things in our sensual/external self, we will also see that our sensual/external self (Lot) can grow into something beautiful! This happens only if we allow our sensual/external self to serve and come into harmony with our more spiritual/internal self; ridding ourselves of this things that prevent this from happening. This week reflect on things in your more external self that the Lord may be asking you to separate from. Separating from Lot can be difficult, but it allows us to experience the true blessings the Lord created us for! | By Matthew Genzlinger, West Concord, MA

  • 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
