  1. Where do you study Swedenborg’s theology and how long does it take to get a certificate?
    I’m ordained in the ELCA with an MDiv from PLTS and an MSW from the University of Washington. Now retired from full time ministry but still active in the NW Washington Synod. Would love to study. Sarah France
