Adult Forum – Decoding ‘The Da Vinci Code’

The Rev. Dr. Russell C. Sullivan, Jr., Pastor, Pine Street Presbyterian Church

Dan Brown’s popular book, The Da Vinci Code, was a publishing phenomenon several years ago. An exciting thriller, the book proposes several conspiracies based on church history. What’s truth and what’s fiction? Did the Emperor Constantine compile the Bible? Was Jesus married? Was Jesus divine? Did the church conspire to hide the truth? What you’ll get out of this forum is a ride through church history and the real basis of our beliefs. Purchase your own copy of The Da Vinci Code at the Welcome Center at the church.

Adult Forum – Rendering to Caesar: Christ, Culture, and Public Life

Dr. Dean C. Curry, Professor of Politics, Messiah College 

For two thousand years Christians have wrestled with the dilemma of what it means to be “in the world but not of the world.” In this three-part series, we will examine the different ways Christians have understood what it means to be a citizen of God’s kingdom as well as a citizen of the world. We will also see why a faithful presence in the world requires that we not remain silent about the connection between our most deeply held beliefs and the common good. Related issues to be explored include: the connection between Christianity and democracy, the blessing and limits of politics, the right and wrong way for individual believers and the Church to engage public life. Dr. Curry’s published writings include books and articles addressing issues related to global politics, war and peace, religion and public life, and  …  Wilt Chamberlain.

November 18

Introduction to the Enneagram

The enneagram is an ancient system that can help us understand human behavior. Having been used by spiritual guides for over 2000 years, this system describes nine personality styles with many variations. Although it is first and foremost a journey of self-discovery, learning this model can also increase understanding and harmony in our family relationships and with our work colleagues. It explores what motivates us, what we tend to avoid, how we react to stress, and when we are at our best. It challenges us, shows us our strengths and weaknesses, and offers a path for personal and spiritual growth.

Our presenters for this workshop are Ellen Kanagy, LCSW, and Rhonda Myers, LPC. Both are therapists at Samaritan Counseling Center in Lancaster, PA. Both have studied and learned from the enneagram for many years and found it to be a helpful tool personally and relationally. Ellen is also a former staff member of Kairos: School of Spiritual formation in Wernersville, PA, and a certified spiritual director through Kairos.

There is a $15.00 charge for the workshop. Register at the Welcome Center, or e-mail the church at office@pinestreet.org. Mail your check to Pine Street and annotate it “Enneagram Workshop.”

Adult Forum – Policing in Harrisburg

November 26

Adult Forum – Gospel Overture: The Christmas Story According to Matthew

The Rev. Dr. Russell C. Sullivan, Jr., Pastor, Pine Street Presbyterian Church

Themes found in the infancy narrative in Matthew are restated and reinforced throughout the body of the Gospel. As a result, the Christmas story can be understood as an overture to the Gospel, in much the same way that the music at the beginning of an opera introduces the themes that will be repeated in the body of the opera. Find out in Matthew’s version of Jesus’ birth what his main purpose is.

Our Staff

We are a diverse and dynamic community of believers who are dedicated to worshiping God, increasing our faith through Christian education, and serving one another and our community.
