Please join us on Zoom this Sunday, August 1, 2021, at 10:30 am, for Fellowship and 11:00 am, for Worship Service with Guest Minister, Rev. Ron Brugler.
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.
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.
1, 2. By eating the labour of his hands is signified the celestial good which man receives by a life according to Divine truths from the Lord and as it were acquires to himself by his own labour and study. E. 617
5, 6. This is said of those who have been in spiritual captivity and are liberated. To hear the measure of seed stands for instruction in truths, to come again with singing, for the gladness of affection for truth, and to bring the sheaves, for the doctrinals of that truth. A. 4686.
