Through the summer months we have been looking at the Apostle’s Creed. Many of us recited this creed growing up in the church. Some of us learned about it in Confirmation. This creed is rich in meaning and is significant for all who consider themselves followers of Jesus Christ. Join us for our final three weeks as we continue to open ourselves up to this ancient but relevant declaration of the Christian faith.
