My name is Solomon Keal. I am a minister for the General Church of the New Jerusalem, which is a Swedenborgian Christian denomination. These are some of my thoughts about the Lord, the symbolic meanings in the Bible, life after death, faith, charity, usefulness, loving the Lord and one's neighbor, the 2nd Coming, Swedenborg's Writings, and other theological stuff.

Moving from Haran to Canaan
Here is the link to a family talk I gave in the Bryn Athyn Cathedral. The subject is about Jacob leaving the land of Haran and returning to his homeland of Canaan. Spiritually the story is about changing what motivates us. Moving from the land of "doing good things for selfish reasons," to the land of "doing good things for unselfish reasons."
