The Helen Keller Spiritual Life Center - A Swedenborgian Center for Justice & Peace

Renounce Zombie Capitalism for Divinity's Love of True Capital

EThe Bible, like many of the world’s scriptures, is very critical of unjust economics and many of the hard sentiments at play in our Western systems. God(dess) often demands that we uplift the downtrodden and broken, relinquishing our worldly riches and hoardes of gold for the betterment of humanity as part of how we interact in commerce and community. Unfortunately, today we often give lip-service to God the Christ (“the One who Saves”) while actively embodying the opposite of his radical economics. The Divine Savior at the heart of all of our traditions puts value on the greatest capital of all: our labor, leisure & intellectual capital, and even more so on the point of economics itself, saving and uplifting lives.

In the Refining Fire of the Master Blacksmith: How God(dess) Makes and Builds Up Our Spirits

This week we’ll reflect on what it means to be within the Lord’s "refiner’s fire,” as we continue to seek to heed Divinity's constant invitation toward greater humility, peace and heavenly wholeness - no matter our tradition.

In the Refining Fire of the Master Blacksmith: How God(dess) Makes and Builds Up Our Spirits

God's Humility Allows for Life & Our Salvation

In this video, we reflect on how scriptures describe God’s humility and how that empowering quality allows him/her to meet us where we’re at and uplift us toward heavenly peace and goodness. The open Christianity at the root of our Swedenborgianism tells us that not only are both man and woman made in God’s image and likeness, but all good and grand things in the universe are empowered by him/her. Despite such majesty, the Lord awaits and empowers our goodness with patience and kindness: he sets our path straight where we allow him to with Divine Humility. A humility that we’re asked to reflect back for our own spiritual well-being.

Interview with Rev. Ken Turley, Former President of the Swedenborgian Church - On His Music & Journey

Uncover Your Light & Let it Shine - Spiritual Reflection & Music

Many traditions, as well as the words of Christ, tell us that we should allow our lights to shine while shedding the hurtful constructs that can dampen it. What does this mean spiritually? It can be especially confusing when held in the light of our call to humility. However, as we'll see, combining this idea with Christ's and others' invitation to become like spiritual children can bring powerful insight into how these truths might empower our lives toward greater peace, play, and goodness.

Is the Universal "Christ" the True Skywalker? How Love Rises and Seeks to be United to All

Star Wars and the journey of the Skywalker's describe how the Cosmic "Christ" (meaning "Savior") works in our universe and in our lives, striving to establish justice, connection and love, no matter our religion. In this broadcast, we explore how the deep metaphors in the Star Wars story relate to the deeply spiritual story of God's advent, and how he/she strives to connect through all traditions and with all peoples due to God's Divine Love for us, working to uplift everyone toward greater well-being.Our community's pluralistic Swedenborgian spirituality, based on an interfaith, mystical Christianity, has deeply influenced the likes of Helen Keller, Carl Jung, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman), William Blake, Henry James, Robert Frost, DT Suzuki, George Inness and William Keith.

Advent Sunday 3: Agers Anonymous - Church as a Healthy Growth Support Group

The church wants to be here for its members from cradle to grave. What other organization can say the same? This is not just a matter of survival. I recall a remark by a member of an exceptionally well-endowed church: "This church could keep going even if it didn't have any members." That would be survival of everything but the church. I'm starting to think of the ideal church as a kind of support group. Support groups form spontaneously, serving people who are facing or have faced some particular trying experience-bereavement, divorce, or cancer, for example. The only requirements for membership are shared experience and a recognition of the need of help in dealing with it well.
