Swedenborg’s Birthday at BACS

January 29th was Emmanuel Swedenborg’s birthday. BACS has used this date to acknowledge Swedenborg in different ways over the years. This year in addition to a religious assembly put on by the 8th grade on the previous Friday and the traditional Swedish flag topped treats, each class had a lesson dedicated to Swedenborg. Each grade’s lesson focused on a different aspect of Swedenborg’s life. Topics included his scientific work, his education, his childhood, and his travels. Our hope is that at the end of the day our students not only learned a bit more about Swedenborg as a person, but that they could also begin to see how a path was laid through Divine Providence preparing him to serve to the Lord in such an important way.
