We hope to see you in California in 2022!
See you tomorrow!
Social Rooms and FunI want to turn your attention to our Social Events happening every evening during Convention. On both Friday and Saturday Night we will be hosting a Zoom meeting for social activities. The password for this is: SCNA2021
· At the end of each organized activity you are welcomed to participate in evening meditation that will take place in the same Zoom room, to close out your day.
· On Sunday, June 27th, after Convention has closed, we will open up a Zoom Room welcome to everyone. This will be unstructured and is meant to be a place and time for us to come together with our friends who we may not have seen in some time.
· All Zoom Rooms can be joined by going to the 2021Convention website Schedule page here: https://convention2021.swedenborg.org/event-listing/
The following events will also be broadcast to Facebook. Please note that we will NOT be monitoring the “Chat” on Facebook. If you are having trouble joining the webinar for some reason (or if you just prefer the interface), you can watch these events here at their scheduled times:
· Friday June 25, 5:50pm ET – Gathering music by Rev. Dr. David Fekete, followed by a welcome from our president and ministries throughout North America, finding some good in the midst of the pandemic
· Friday June 25, 7:00pm ET – Opening Worship Service Hosted by the New Jerusalem Church in Bridgewater, MA (attached to this email is the Bulletin for Opening Worship at Convention which can also be found here)
· Saturday June 26, 11:50am – Gathering Music by Ken Turley followed by a Memorial Service and Virtual Communion hosted by the Elmwood New Church.
· Saturday June 26, 12:40pm ET – Keynote Speaker, Gary Lachman. (Please note, in order to submit your questions to the Q&A you will have to be logged into the event. Questions will not be taken from Facebook).

· Sunday June 27, 7:00pm ET - Virtual Outing, Invitation for Next Year’s Convention, and the Closing of Convention. We will close with music from Ian Woofenden and Lisa Grace.
