Summer Adult Forums – Fellowship Hall

June 24 – “Inside the Music” – Brett Terry and the Chancel Choir give us an inside look at how they prepare the music they sing in worship, and you’ll be temporarily drafted to be part of the choir as we make music together!

July 1 – Heather Sigler, and Russell Sullivan will share with us the events and highlights of General Assembly.

July 22 – “Experiencing the Power of Jesus’ Parables” -Michael R. Cosby, Ph.D. Michael Cosby, retired professor of Biblical Studies, compares parables with jokes: you either get the joke or you do not. Laughter erupts spontaneously when an unexpected twist in a story takes us by surprise. But we must know the background of a joke to get the humor. If someone has to explain why a joke is funny, it loses its punch. In the same way, we must understand the cultural background of Jesus’ parables to feel their impact. Join us again on July 22 to encounter parables and experience their power as stories told to transform people’s lives.

July 29 – “Barnabas: How Traditions transformed a Peacemaker into a Warrior Saint”. Michael R. Cosby, Ph.D. Barnabas, one of the most influential leaders of the early Christian movement, mentored the Apostle Paul and led the first multi-ethnic church in Antioch. Although the New Testament depicts Barnabas as adept at mediating ethnic conflicts among Christians, today in his homeland of Cyprus he is a symbol of Greek Cypriot nationalism. Greek Orthodox Christians pray to Barnabas to expel the Turks from the island. On July 29, Michael Cosby, who conducted research in Cyprus as a senior Fulbright Fellow, will explain how church traditions transformed a peacemaker into a warrior saint. This session will challenge us to consider the lens through which we perceive biblical figures and help us to ponder how we might be using them to advance our own political agendas.

August 5, 12, 19, and 26 – Dr. Lee Barrett, Professor of Theology at Lancaster Theological Seminary, will lead our forums. The topic is to be determined.

July 15
