We are excited to report that the new spiritual growth book, The Joy of Spiritual Living is now in print.

This book is a guide for an 8-step spiritual growth experience that you can do on your own or in a group. Each chapter introduces a topic and a weekly task to practice in your daily life. The book is the second in the series, and the first book is also being reprinted!

Copies are available for purchase for $14.00. We also have a few copies for borrowing from the Sunrise Chapel library. An electronic version is also available for $2.99 through swedenborgfoundation.com

Congratulations to Frank Rose and Bob Maginel for this new accomplishment that has been several years in the making!
