Join Rev. Renée Machiniak for a mini course hosted with Zoom Meeting using the password that you were given when you registered for Convention.
In this mini-course, we will explore and discuss how Swedenborgian theology addresses the challenging issues of the pandemic and increasing violence in our society. We will incorporate such theological themes as the influences of heaven and hell, the purpose of this life and the Last Judgement.
Rev. Renee Machiniak has served as the minister of the Church of the Holy City in Royal Oak, Michigan, for over twenty-five years, serving also as a part-time hospice and oncology chaplain for nine years and volunteer police chaplain with the Royal Oak police department for seventeen years. She is happily married to her husband, Joe, and enjoys co-creating Sunday sermons with her mother, Sharon, and father, Rev. John Billings, a retired Swedenborgian minister. Renee was diagnosed with lupus five years ago, which has significantly deepened her spiritual path and focused her sense of purpose in ministry.
