The Apostles Creed is one of the oldest creeds in the Christian tradition. The earliest known mention of this creed came in 390AD in a letter by Ambrose to Pope Siriicus. We mentioned Sunday how the creed allows us to look back on that historical context and celebrate with generations past. We also saw that the creed can help us look at the now. We live in a culture which says ‘believe what you want to believe, there is not absolute truth’. But the creed helps us push against that narrative and claim what we believe boldly. Finally, the words of the creed give us hope for the future to look ahead knowing that God is at work in our world, and the really cool part is- we have a part to play as kingdom builders. And the words of the creed help us to communicate that future hope to those around us. As you read through the scripture texts this week see the pattern of looking back, looking at the now and looking ahead.
