Homework for March 3 - Write your own creed

What do you believe? Write your own creed. Be as detailed or sweeping as you wish to be. Consider this a snapshot of what you believe now. This is not a test of orthodoxy, but a gauge of your spiritual life. You might even put it in an envelope and look at it a year from now.

We will share our creeds next week, and feel free to share yours here on this blog.


  1. I believe in one God, the Father, the Mother, the Sister, and the Brother of us all, whom we will never be able to fully comprehend.

    I believe in His only Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ -- Brother and Friend who walks with us daily and pushes us to do whatever we can to serve others.

    I believe in the Holy Sprit, the Lord the Giver of Life, Wisdom, and Comfort to the Afflicted.

    I believe we are called to worship the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit most often outside of the church's walls.

    I believe we all fall short of the glory of God every single day. And I believe it means we have to try harder the next day, with the help of all the different sides and natures of our God.


  2. I will not be in class tonight, but I wanted to share my creed. It is evolving continually, but here is a snapshot of what I believe right now:

    I believe in God – one God who is too big to fit into one religion, but who is worshiped by Christians. I believe that Jesus is his only risen Son, a part of the one same God. I believe in God's Spirit on earth.
    I believe that God loves all of His creation, even when we are unlovable. I believe that love and kindness come from God, not from man. I believe that rituals such as Holy Eucharist are important because they bring men into a more right relationship with God. I believe that men must not only believe that God exists, but must seek a personal relationship with Him in order to be saved. I believe that all humans are sinners and could not come to God if not for Jesus' death and resurrection. I believe that Christ will come again and, at that time, we humans will be able to know God on a whole new level.


  3. Hi everyone,

    I hope this gets posted where some one can read it. The author talk that I mentioned on the last day of class is Kate Brastrup appearing at Medical Center Hour, Jordan Hall Conference Center, 12:30 pm, 3/24/10.

    Her work is amoung the things that inspired me to come back to church. See details at:
