Why Is There A New Church?

This church is called The New Church? Why? What’s new about it? Why do we need a new church?

If you think about all the weird, hurtful and dysfunctional things that have gone on in the name of religion over the last several centuries (for example) it is not hard to imagine that “the church” on earth needs a reboot.

The New Church is a new way of understanding the Bible, who God is (merciful, loving, wise), the reality of life after death, the nature of God’s leading (Divine Providence), the beautiful truth that this world needs the variety that is found in all the different religions and faiths – like the variety within the human body which help it to function as a whole,  and many more amazing truths.

So yes, there is a New Church. And it is needed. Perhaps you can see the need too and want to learn more about it. Why not come this Sunday and learn more about it.

It is also Father’s Day on Sunday. Wishing all who are blessed to be called “father, dad, papa, daddy and all the other possibilities” a happy Father’s Day!

Working Towards Forgiveness

Forgiveness takes time. That is okay. The sooner we can begin the journey the sooner we will find peace, connection and a greater sense of freedom.

This week we will talk about the journey toward forgiveness. We hope you will join us for this important discussion and find support for your own journey forward.

Are You Going To Go To The Party?

Jesus taught using parables. One time he used a parable about a great feast or party. There were many people invited to the feast, but when the time arrived for it they came up with excuses why they couldn’t make it (Luke 14). The master of house was upset and told his servants to go and invite others to come so his house would be full. He went into the streets and lanes and invited the “poor, maimed, lame and blind” to come.

Parables are stories Jesus told that have a meaning for our spirit. Do we recognize that we are invited to great happiness and joy and yet we often make up excuses why we would rather live differently? Do we see that it is in recognizing our brokenness that we have the humility to seek a life in connection with God and others–that then we are willing to give up our own brand of happiness and come and see what God is offering.

The Way To Heaven: Easy or Difficult?

Supposing you believe in heaven, and supposing also that it is a place you would like to go some day, do you know the way there or know what is required to get there? And is the way there difficult or pretty easy? Do we have to live the life of a saint to make it or do they let all the riff raff in, regardless?

We will look into these questions on Sunday. One big hint: God created us all to go there,  and leaves it up to us to determine if we really want to go there or not. The door is open if we are open to it.

The Path Of Our Life

People talk about being on a spiritual path, or describe life as a journey. If we are on a journey do you know where you are heading? Have you set a course that you are happy with? Will you end up where you want to be? These are important questions.

At this time there are many people either beginning new chapters of life or graduating into the next phase of life. Choosing a career path is important, but the most important question is where is our spiritual path leading us and have we given it much thought and much of our attention?

This Sunday we will talk about the path of life and examine our hoped for destination and the course that could take us there.

What Really Happened In The Garden Of Eden

If you take the Garden of Eden story literally you end up with several hurtful assumptions, such as; that women were created from men (like a subspecies); that women were the cause of our problems as a species; that women are weak and easily succumb to temptations; that women are to be subservient to their husbands. That is a handful of serious accusations. And, none of it is true.

The Bible is true, but maybe not the way you might think. For example, the first eleven chapters of Genesis are all made up allegorical stories designed to couch a deeper spiritual story about the history of the human mind or spirit and our relationship to God.

Adam (human beings), Eve (our sense of selfhood), serpent (sensory evidence), the tree of life (belief that all good and truth are from God), the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (the idea we can learn about spiritual things from sensory evidence) and many other symbols in the text tell of humanity’s desire to feel life as if it is our own and how God accommodated to our desire, and how this was a step down from how we were created: knowing and believing that all life, goodness and truth are from God and being content to receive the blessings of that way of living (the paradisal state of the Garden of Eden).

On this Mother’s Day we will try to clear up the bad rap that women have received because of the way this story has been understood, really misunderstood, for so long.

Church: Friends Helping Friends

In life we will invariably come up against some pretty difficult struggles against selfish or hurtful desire.  The Lord is the One who offers us the power to overcome.   However, in these struggles, it is extremely helpful to have friends to help us maintain perspective, focus and direction.  They can be extremely helpful in keeping us tuned into the Lord so that He can act in ways that bring peace (and growth) from our struggles.

Our service this week will be led by David Lindrooth. David has been a minister for over thirty years. He served as pastor in Ivyland, PA, Tucson, AZ, Stockholm Sweden and has been the Director of Outreach for the New Church for many years and is now an Assistant Bishop of the church, still in charge of Outreach.
