All tagged Apostles' Creed
This last Sunday was communion Sunday at Christ Church (the church we attend in Edinburgh). Unlike Parish where I am the assistant pastor, Christ Church partakes in communion one week every month. At Parish we would take communion every week. However, at both churches before we come to the table we confess our faith together. That confession of faith usually takes the form of reciting the Apostles’ Creed.
Every Sunday, when we are reciting the Apostles’ Creed together, one of the doctrines that we profess belief in is the ascension of Christ. We say, “He ascended into Heaven, and now sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.” It is a doctrine that is so quickly forgotten, but carries with it so many important and life changing implications. Not the least of which connects to prayer.
