#Charity Day to Day #CincyDiscussions

Practical Spirituality Discussion Group.  The current topic is “CHARITY”.  Our main interest is to discover what charity really is in terms of day to day living in the modern world, and how to practice it.  What are the pitfalls and benefits?  Do we, or should we, all approach it the same way?  A man named Emanuel Swedenborg says, “The ‘first’ of charity is to look to the Lord and shun evils because they are sins….”  Huh?  Well, yes, he can be a difficult author and definitely provides a theological slant.  We will be looking at what he probably means and how he explains it as part of our exploration.  We’ll try to apply Swedenborg and resources from a variety of traditions as we exchange opinions and explore this subject.

Our meeting this Thursday evening is at 6:30 PM in Mason and is open to newcomers.  We thrive on variety!  If you’re interested call (513) 630-8777 and leave a call back number if you don’t get an answer.  We can get you directions to the meeting place.

Acts of Service


297. Anyone who thinks with some enlightenment can see that love has service as its goal, that love tends toward service, and that love brings about service through wisdom. In fact, love cannot accomplish anything useful by itself, only by means of wisdom. After all, what is love unless there is something that is loved? That “something” is service. Service is what is loved; and since it is brought forth by means of wisdom, it follows that service is the vessel of love and wisdom.
~ Emanuel Swedenborg (Dole, trans.), Divine Love and Wisdom, n. 297

#StephenHawking Quotes


While Stephen Hawking didn’t believe in an afterlife, his quotes nonetheless show that doing good in this life is the most important thing, no matter your physical state.

“Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it.” ~Stephen Hawking

“Don’t be disabled in spirit.” ~Stephen Hawking

Two great quotes from Stephen Hawking that align with Swedenborg’s and many others’ concepts of a good life.
