Creed: a brief authoritative formula of religious belief. From the Latin, "credo"
Credo comes straight from the Latin word meaning "I believe", and is the first word of many religious credos, or creeds, such as the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed. But the word can be applied to any guiding principle or set of principles. Of course, you may choose a different credo when you're 52 than when you're 19.
Which is why our church has taken on the task of creating a multi generational confirmation and reaffirmation experience in which the whole church has been invited into. Our confirmation students and their sponsors began yesterday in class working through a creed workbook. This workbook will be available to everyone to participate in throughout these next number of weeks. Each Monday another chapter will be posted here for you too! I encourage you to work through the questions individually, or with your partner, a friend, or someone, who like you, is seeking more in their faith journey.
This concludes our workbook. You can now begin to compile your creed from the notes you have taken and discussions you have had. Take your time and create more than one draft.
