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.

The Recipe for Spiritual Growth
Here are some links to a sermon I gave on the Parable of the Leaven (Luke 13:20,21). Why does the Lord compare the Kingdom of God to a woman adding leaven to bread-dough? Isn't leaven usually symbolic of something bad in the Word? And what does this have to do with us? What does this parable teach us about the recipe for our own spiritual growth?
