★☆★THE HOSTS★☆★

Curtis Childs is the Director of OffTheLeftEye at the Swedenborg Foundation. While obtaining his degree in communication studies from Oakland University, Curtis experienced an internal battle with depression that led him to question God and his lifelong interest in Swedenborgian theology. After a period of intense suffering, he recovered from his depression with the help of modern medicine, therapy, and a return to the spiritually uplifting messages he found in Swedenborg’s writings. Now, Curtis is applying his education and desire to help others find peace through Swedenborg’s insights by producing and hosting this weekly webcast.

Rev. Dr. Jonathan S. Rose is the series editor of the New Century Edition, an ongoing project that incorporates the latest scholarship to produce a modern, accessible translation of Emanuel Swedenborg’s theological works. Holder of a B.A. and a M.Div. in religion and a M.A. and a Ph.D. in Latin, he has worked for years in the study of Neo-Latin and in Swedenborgian research. He was both chaplain and a tenured professor of religion and sacred languages at Bryn Athyn College before taking on his current position with the Swedenborg Foundation.

Karin Childs attended Swedenborgian schools from preschool through college. While raising five children with her husband, Jon, she applied her love of the Bible and Swedenborg's writings to volunteer work creating Sunday school programs and church pageants. Concepts from Swedenborg's works were crucial to Karin in dealing with the death of their oldest daughter. For 17 years, she and Jon ran a small publishing company to produce Swedenborgian books, including three novels that Karin wrote and books addressing loss and grief. She feels blessed to have been asked by her son Curtis and the Swedenborg Foundation to help respond to a growing audience and write shows.

Chelsea Odhner is the Production Manager for offTheLeftEye and a writer for Swedenborg & Life. A lifelong Swedenborgian, Chelsea’s self-study of Swedenborg began in her early twenties when she was determined to make changes in her life and behaviors. Alongside a deep study of yoga practice and philosophy, Chelsea has found Swedenborg’s worldview to be the best hub to connect all the spokes of different faiths and philosophical perspectives that she values. Initially interested in pursuing a career in integrative medicine, her path has led her to focus on serving the spiritual side of health and well-being.
