This I Believe

For this Easter 2019 I am posting the declaration of faith about my Christian beliefs. Each Sunday morning my congregation joins with countless others affirming what we believe. We stand. We say it. We believe it. Sharing this ancient affirmation of faith with you brings me great joy:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth; 
And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried,
the third day he rose from the dead,
he ascended into heaven
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty,
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead; 
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
A penny post card greeting from the early 1900's.
Catch of the day, on this Eastern morning,
