Faith Takes Practice

For centuries, Christians from California to Africa (and around the world) have stood and said the words of the Apostles' Creed together.  The creed is considered the basic statement of faith that all sorts of Christians can agree on.  This creed is called the Apostles' Creed not because it was produced by the apostles themselves but because it contains a brief summary of their teachings. It sets forth their doctrine "in sublime simplicity, in unsurpassable brevity, in beautiful order, and with liturgical solemnity." In its present form it is dated no later than the fourth century. More than any other Christian creed, it may justly be called an ecumenical symbol of faith.

But Christians have not only agreed on statements of faith over the years.  There have also been practices, habits if you will, that have and continue to shape Christian faith.  Like any good athlete or musician knows, in order to be proficient in your craft, it takes practice - and practices.  Christianity is no different.

Over the coming months we'll be taking 2 successive weeks each month to explore the Christian faith through the Apostles' Creed one week and historic Christian practices/disciplines the next.  The format of each seminar is roughly 20 minutes of presented material, followed by discussion, and a few minutes for questions to wrap up.  Dinner is provided (with a suggested donation) and there will be a nursery for little ones and activities (with dinner) for kids.
