  • Believing the Good News

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 1 Apr, 2018

    In the story of the Lord rising on Easter morning, the women saw the risen Lord first, and then delivered the good news to the eleven. But the eleven disciples didn’t believe the women at first (Mark 16:9-14; Luke 24:9-11). What does this represent in our spiritual lives? | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • What Do Palm Branches Symbolize?

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 25 Mar, 2018

    When Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem as King, the people waved palm branches and laid them down before Him. What do “palm branches” symbolize in our spiritual lives as we progress towards the new life of the Easter story? | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Pouring Out Oil for the Lord

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 18 Mar, 2018

    Mary poured out an entire jar of precious aromatic oil to anoint the Lord (John 12:1-8). Judas rebuked her, saying that she should have sold it to give to the poor (although he really wanted to steal some of the money for himself). There are voices like Judas’s that tell us that any time we spend on anything other than direct service to the needy is wasteful. What can we learn from Mary’s example, and how can her actions show us the way to a more genuine love both for the Lord AND for other people? | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Take Your Shoes Off, Moses

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 4 Mar, 2018

  • Truth as a ‘Sister’ or a ‘Wife’?

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 18 Feb, 2018

    In Genesis chapter 12 Abram and Sarai went down to Egypt. Abram asked Sarai to say she was his sister so they wouldn’t kill him and take her. But after Pharaoh took Sarai into his house, he discovered that she was Abram’s wife and returned her to him. What does this story tell us about the marriage of goodness and truth in our own lives? | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Spiritual Salt

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 11 Feb, 2018

    In 2nd Kings chapter 2, the water at Jericho was bad, so Elisha “healed” the water by putting salt into it. Salt was used in the Israelite offerings of unleavened bread, and is also an ingredient in our Holy Supper bread. The Lord spoke positively about “salt” in the New Testament. As we take Holy Supper this week, we will explore the symbolism of salt in our lives. | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • Rediscovery and Recommitment

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 28 Jan, 2018

    In the time of King Josiah, the Word was rediscovered in the broken down temple. In the time of Swedenborg, the internal sense of the Word was rediscovered in the Christian Church that was in disrepair. Our lives can also be a broken down “temple” in disrepair, in which the Truth can become lost. How do we rediscover and recommit to the Truth that can help us rebuild and heal our lives? | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

    Worship Service: Informal Family - 7 Jan, 2018

    Throughout the Word people pray to the Lord, and their position and gestures are often described. They may kneel, prostrate themselves, lift up their hands to heaven, look up to heaven, bow their heads, beat their breasts, or make other gestures. Why do they do this? What should we do? | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall

  • The Gifts of the Magi

What does it represent when we bring fruit to the altar and have a feast on Thanksgiving? | By Rev. Solomon J. Keal , Bryn Athyn Heilman Hall
