1st Week

Biblical Theme:
"I'm in the Bible
and the Bible is in Me

From our physical birth to our resurrection into the world of spirits at our death, we are offered spiritual correspondences to guide our journey in the stories of the Bible. Swedenborg specifically outlined the passages that advance the story of humanity's development, and the spiritual growth of every person. This week our lecturers will explore with us the many milestones we find when we follow this 'story within the story' and how we can find guidance in the Bible stories for our lives here and now!

2nd Week

Doctrinal Theme:
"Finding Holiness in the Word, Now and Every Day"

It has been famously observed that the Ten Commandments are not merely prohibitions, but promises. For example, regarding the eighth commandment "You shall not bear false witness" we are offered a promise: “You will learn why it is good not to lie, and the truth shall set you free.”  Our topic for this week is similar, for more than an intellectual concept, to believe the Word is Holy, this week aims to help you experience that the Word is holy, and feel its rich blessing in your life.  Our lecturers this week will aim to open a way to the Word’s holiness, and will invite us to experience its interior riches.
