Herb Ziegler

General Council - Layperson (three-year term)

I would like to thank the Nominating Committee for asking me to run for General Council. I look forward to this opportunity to serve the Swedenborgian Church and help it through these rapidly changing and sometimes perilous times to the extent my talents, knowledge, and efforts allow me. I have extensive experience with the Church having served on General Council, the Board of Directors of the Center for Swedenborgian Studies, and the Investment Committee. I am a member of the Cambridge Church and served as president of the Massachusetts New Church Union for many years and I am a trustee of the Gray Fund. As well, I was an employee of the Church for twelve years, serving as editor of the Messenger. The Church has given me much in terms of spiritual, social, and material well-being, and growth in wisdom and perspective. I would like to, with your approval, give back.
