THAT "LONG, OLD CREED"
Today, the Church rejoices in celebrating Trinity Sunday. Yes, God has revealed Himself as one God in three persons--the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Most congregations that use some form of the historic liturgy will confess the Athanasian Creed today. Some may call it, as I've heard folks in years past, "that old, long creed." Yet, it's absolutely glorious, not really that long and it's full of pure truth. All three persons of the Holy Trinity are coequal and coeternal. They share the same essence and divine will for our daily forgiveness, eternal life and free salvation. That's why the Father sent His sole-begotten Son into the flesh--to die for us. Risen, our Lord Jesus--who is and remains of two natures--divine and human--abides with His Church, revealing the love of the Father through the Holy Spirit. Check it out here. http://bocl.org?creeds
