Working on liturgy for a service that will Celebrate the Gifts of Women and wanted an Affirmation that would be appropriate for the theme (“wherever the Good News is told, her story will be told also”) but also affirm what we believe about God. Would LOVE feedback in the comments!
We believe in God, Creator and Sustainer of all that lives;
the One in whose image all are made;
the One who kept covenant with Sarah and Abraham and never forgot Hagar,
answered Hannah’s deepest prayer,
and gave songs to Miriam, Deborah and Mary;
the One who loves, hears and sings over us still today.
We believe in Jesus Christ, Redeemer and Savior of all who believe;
the One who loved Martha and Mary;
the One who fed the crowds,
healed the woman who bled,
raised Jairus’ daughter and Lazarus;
the One whose love, life, death and rising re-creates us still today.
We believe in the Spirit, Comforter and Interpreter for all who cry out;
the One who came in fire and wind;
the One who gave courage to Esther,
caused David to dance;
and made John leap in Elizabeth’s womb,
the One who breathes life into the Word still today.
We believe that the Body of Christ is made up of hands large and small,
hearts old and young, legs strong and weak,
and feet made beautiful as they carry the Good News to the nations.
