” The building itself is a lesson — it teaches truth and honesty, this little tiled brick church at the corner of Lyon and Washington streets…” Over one hundred years after those words were written by a newspaper reporter, the Swedenborgian Church still stands — flourishes, rather — in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, California.
The spirit of the church arose from an appreciation of the beauty of nature, and a will to express that beauty as divinity itself.
Its creation in 1895 was influenced by an elite group of early California pioneers: the painter William Keith, naturalist John Muir, architect A. Page Brown, draftsman Bernard Maybeck, and most particularly by the Reverend Joseph Worcester, who would be its first minister.
