A Confession of Faith


I'd like to solicit ideas as a follow up to the last post on secularism. Please share your ideas to the following:

If the Fathers of the Orthodox Church could safeguard the Truth by writing the Nicene Creed in AD 325 and 381, than it must be the answer we offer our youth for tomorrow's generation.

In what ways do you teach the Nicene Creed to your children and families?

Unfortunately most of the people I know aren't Orthodox, so I tend to explain it in a historical context. This is partially because it helps explain its important, and also because our modern society has such a warped view of the council thanks to distortions in popular media.

Since I am a new convert of 4 years, I raised my children in the American Baptist faith. They learned the Nicene Creed, though not specifically, through daily living, Sunday school, dinner time conversations, philosophical conversations in the car on long trips and things like that.

It was just a part of life for us. It probably also helped that I was their Sunday school teacher for a couple years as they passed through the ranks! LOL!
