The mission of this ministry is to create a vibrant online spiritual community available 24/7 for Swedenborgians and seekers around North America and the globe to explore, share, and deepen their faith and connection to the Swedenborgian Church . We aim to create a community where our members are known to each other, where they feel free to share openly their personal journey of faith, and where they feel nurtured and supported in their walk with the Lord. We aim to create an open and welcoming community for new spiritual seekers, introducing the Swedenborgian Faith in an accessible way through our own powerful testimony and life experience with it.
SwedenborgianCommunity was launched in June 2006 after being developed by a committed group of laypeople determined to create a new way for isolated Swedenborgians to connect with one another and be "church." This group called Rev. Sage Currie to serve as their first Cyber Minister. It called Rev. Wilma Wake in February of 2008, and she has served ever since. The site has attracted hundreds of people who have registered to participate in Discussion Forums, participate in live chats, create Community interest pages, and much more.
At SwedenborgianCommunity we are church not because of physical proximity but spiritual proximity. We welcome our many members and visitors of diverse perspectives and backgrounds to find inspiration, community and comfort here.
