The sermon title is “Where Do You Store Your Wealth?”

We have a practice of collecting things— making ourselves comfortable, happy, trying to save something in case things go wrong. But, these things are not of any use once we have completed our short stay in this world, so what about the rest of our life? Hmmm?

Let’s explore this through as it relates to readings from Emanuel Swedenborg. We look forward to your input. Zoom link will be provided to church members and their contacts.

Brothers walking down a path with butterflies

Psalm 132, New Living Translation

Psalm 132, Science of Correspondences

The tent of my house stands for the holy of love. To go up upon the couch of the bed means upon the natural to the truth which is from the good of love. Coming into the tent of the house, and going up upon the couch of the bed is a prophetic saying, which cannot be understood without the internal sense. A. 6188.

Arise, O Lord, Our God, Arise
