Almost every Protestant pastor has had to answer the question, “Why do we say ‘catholic’ in the Creed?” Catholic with a little “c” means broad-based or universal. We are affirming our belief and hope in the creation, the sustaining and the future of the church.
The church is not about the building, the grounds, the hymns, the liturgical books, the robes, the pews or even the pastor. It is defined by the presence of people who gather together in faith and celebrate biblically-oriented rites of baptism and communion.
This message is an excerpt of “The Apostles’ Creed” Bible study by Julia Seymour in the November 2017 issue of Gather magazine. Today is the fourth Sunday in Lent. Don’t forget to spring forward on your clocks as Daily Savings Time began today at 12 a.m.
