Know Thyself: Personality Testing and Me with Rev. Steve Schumm
Join Rev. Schumm in the Adult Lounge from 9-945 am for this in-depth view of The Enneagram and discover your personality type.
The Enneagram is an archetypal framework that offers in-depth insight to individuals, groups and collectives. Consisting of three Centers of intelligence, nine main Enneagram types, 18 wings, three subtypes and Triadic styles, the Enneagram offers a rich map to personal development from an open systems perspective. It does not box in people, but rather opens a pathway to self-discovery and greater personal awareness.
The Integrative Enneagram creates self-awareness and uncovers the patterns of behaviour that sub-consciously drive and motivate us to act in certain ways. When we make these patterns and motivations conscious, we are able to transcend them and develop richer, more supportive ways of being. Working with the Enneagram empowers individuals to take responsibility for their own behaviours and growth, from a greater understanding of why they act and react the way they do.
As a framework, the Enneagram also speaks to the journey of integration and development in a profound way. It is able to uncover the uniqueness of each individual and his/her journey. It does not only reveal what holds an individual back, but also offers insights into the journey towards strength and liberation, connecting us to our strengths and higher selves.
The Enneagram is, therefore, a sense-making tool or a framework that enables the development of self-knowledge and meta-awareness*.

The Confirmation Curriculum for the PC(USA)
Big God Big Questions, based on the findings of the Confirmation Project, is focused on preparing youth to authentically answer the questions they are asked when they join the church:
• Trusting in the gracious mercy of God, do you turn from the ways of sin and renounce
evil and its power in the world?
• Who is your Lord and Savior?
• Will you be Christ’s faithful disciple obeying his word and showing his love?
• Will you devote yourself to the church’s teaching and fellowship, to the breaking
of bread and the prayers?
Big God Big Questions equips confirmands to study scripture, tradition of the Christian tradition, and your congregation, to tell their own story.
