I Believe: A Nativity Affirmation


Here’s an affirmation of faith suitable for Advent and Christmas.  It was written by Bruce Prewer.

Affirmation of Faith

I believe in the Living God
who is directly involved in the affairs of the world.

I believe that God chooses the meek and the poor
to shame the proud and the rich.

I believe in the incarnate Word,
leaping in a woman’s womb, cradled in poverty.

I believe in Jesus, true son of Mary, true Son of God,
who came among us in weakness,
that we might come to know the profound strength
available to common people
who turn to God in trust and with love.

Yes, my friends, this I truly believe.
