An Everyday, Ordinary Liturgy (Affirmation of Faith)

Statement-Of-FaithIn corporate worship, the people of God affirm their faith by declaring a historic confession of the Christian faith like the Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed or through the proclamation of a more contemporary expression of faith. These affirmations connect us with the one, holy, catholic Church and as we declare them, we give testimony to what we know and believe to be true, right and good.

In Philippians 4, the Apostle Paul writes:

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)

What might an everyday, ordinary affirmation of faith look like?

Today in your everyday, ordinary life find opportunities to not only think about the kinds of things Paul mentions in Philippians 4, but affirm them as well. Whenever you see something good, true or beautiful, take note of it. Ponder it, reflect upon it. And affirm it.

Build the language of affirmation into your life: point out the good, true and beautiful things wherever you find them and learn to declare: “that’s true, that’s noble, that’s right, pure, lovely and admirable… I affirm it.”

I invite you to visit out my Indiegogo project, A Movable Feast: Worship for the Other Six Days. This book is designed to help the people of God live out the call to worship Monday – Saturday. This book has been percolating within me for quite some time now and with your help the dream can become a reality.
