Each Sunday we make a “Profession of Faith,” usually the Nicene Creed. This profession of faith sets us on a path of faithful living, whereby we hear the God News and are sent to bring it to our homes and places of work and recreation. The connection between faith and authentic worship lies in this living out of the faith. For worship to be authentic, we must inform our everyday actions. Only spiritual insight attains the goal of faith: authentic worship. let us become more faithful in prayer, in fasting, and in works of justice, mercy, and peace.
