Rysciple = Ryan + Disciple
Welcome! My name is Ryan. I presently serve as the presiding minister of Salem United Church of Christ, an historic congregation in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, dating back to 1787. I hold a Master of Divinity from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. The interest of this blog is the integration of various disciplines within theology (doctrinal, historical, biblical, etc.) with “real-world” ministry experiences. I have a broad interest in church history, biblical interpretation, ecumenical relations, and church/state issues. God has entered into human experience in the person of Jesus Christ to rescue and redeem humankind from sin that they may know and live in relationship with God now and forever. I would love to engage you on these and other topics. Feel free to ask me anything about Christianity and the Bible. I may not have all the answers, but together we can seek them.
