Say Your Creed with Joy

[] 3 Apr 2008--Almost the first thing I did this morning was to say the Apostles’ Creed to myself – joyfully.

‘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. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from whence he will come to judge the living 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, Amen.’

Why would I say this joyfully? For a number of reasons.
