Sweden-whatsian?

When I tell people that I’m Swedenborgian, I often get a blank look. Explaining that my church subscribes to the doctrines found in the works of Emanuel Swedenborg doesn’t help a whole lot. Fortunately, the Swedenborg Foundation has just released a video explaining who Swedenborg was and what books to start with if you’re interested in learning more (I made a similar list a couple years ago, but the visuals were significantly less impressive, in that they were non-existent).

(Oh, and by the way: “Swedenborg” is pronounced with a hard G, but “Swedenborgian” is pronounced with a soft G and only 4 syllables – i.e. swee-den-BORJ-en. Now you know.)

Anyway – watch the video. I know at 8 minutes it’s almost an eternity in YouTube land, but it’s worth it.
