Swedenborg held a view of the Divine as infinitely and unconditionally forgiving and non-judgmental. At the same time he stresses the importance of forgiveness as an essential spiritual practice in our journey of regeneration.
In this sermon, Rev. Hugh Odhner explores the Swedenborgian take on the concept of “forgiveness”, both theologically and practically, and invites us to re-dedicate ourselves to a life of kindness and understanding.
