Be of #Service Today #HelpingHands


The Glendale New Church can use your help today from 9-3! 845 Congress Ave, Glendale.

Come one, come all!
  A grand time can be had!
    Great food at lunchtime!
     There’s some jobs for kids too.
        9:00 to 3:00 – come when you can for as long as you can!
        If it rains, we will do the inside stuff and have a “rain date” for the rest.
        Everybody can sign up for a job that interests them – contact one us beforehand and we’ll save it for you
        OR: JUST SHOW UP!
If you want to help, but can’t make it, there are plenty of opportunities – even some “work from home” tasks!
This list is very fluid! Do you know of something else that needs to be done? Please let us know.
Pick up sticks – great job for kids!
Tie the apple saplings to stakes
Fix the pothole in the driveway – will have some asphalt patch and a tamper
Vertical mulching / fertilizing of all the trees This job involves drilling holes in the ground under the trees
Pull the climbing ivy off of the walls (maybe dig up the ivy?)
Painting the handrails
Transplant 2 hostas from the ramp garden to somewhere else
Install birdproofing under the eaves (both buildings = 39 braces)
And there’s always unlimited weeding opportunities!
Move the 2 cabinets to hide the rummage sale stuff To do this we’ll have to empty the cabinets, sort the stuff and organize it before putting it back
Organize rummage sale stuff and pack the rest into boxes that can be stacked There is a wedding 11/4 and we’d like to hide all the rummage sale stuff out of sight before then
Install remaining floor tiles

Install a screen over the fan intake
Upstairs Community Room
Clean the chairs – we plan to rent a machine for this – probably have to save this task for Sunday 10/22

Haul junk out of the cellar
Install plastic sheeting over cleared areas – reduces moisture, chance of mold, and cost of dehumidifying, etc.

The Divine Trinity

divine-trinity“Only through understanding the Trinity can we gain a just idea of God; … [f]or us to see the nature of the divine Trinity in full perspective, the explanation of the Trinity needs to be divided into points as follows:

  1. There is a divine Trinity, which is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  2. These three, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, are three essential components of one God. They are one the way our soul, our body, and the things we do are one.
  3. This Trinity did not exist before the world was created. It developed after the world was created, when God became flesh. It came into existence in the Lord God the Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ.”

From True Christianity, Volume 1, §163, by Emanuel Swedenborg (Jonathan S. Rose, translator), Swedenborg Foundation, West Chester, PA, 2010.

Saturday Serenity, #Religion

What If

What if our religion was each other
If our practice was our life
If prayer, our words
What if the temple was the Earth
If the forests were our church
If holy water – the rivers, lakes and oceans
What if meditation was our relationships
If the teacher was life
If wisdom was self-knowledge
If love was the center of our being
