Meeting in Chicago in August, 2023: The World Parliament of Religions
The brainchild of Swedenborgian Charles Bonney, the first Parliament of the World's Religions was held in 1893 just prior to the opening of the Columbia Exposition. Chicago's Art Institute building was built to house the first Parliament. Representatives of faith traditions around the world will gather once again in Chicago August 14-18, 2023 at the McCormick Lakeside Center. 

Early-bird rates for admission, for the week or for day passes, are available through December 15, 2022. For more information on the Parliament, see 
Faithful volunteer of the Swedenborg Library, Raymond Mitchell, passed into the next life on June 22, 2022, in Barcelona, where he had moved in 2019 to live with his daughter Linda. Ray was a familiar face to those attending Library programs as he usually handled the sign-in table. Ray served for years in the U.S. Army Corps. and later worked as a counselor. Ray was interested in a range of spiritual topics, and attended meetings of the Edgar Cayce community in Virginia Beach, VA. 
We also received notice this year from Nancy Koop's cousin that Nancy Koop passed away in autumn 2021. Shown here displaying her watercolors at the Lakeview Art Fair, Nancy was a regular participant in the Swedenborg Library's book group discussions.
