In a world where we are expected to create our own truth, finding a firm, steady place to examine truth can be a relief from the decision fatigue. With each year, Luther's Small Catechism has meant more and more to both Gretchen and Katie, so we are going through the section of the Apostle's Creed, to show the depth of truth that continues to be a comfort.
We are working through the section of the small catechism dealing with the 2nd article of the Apostle's Creed. In plain English, that means that we are talking about Jesus, the 2nd person of the Trinity. This study of the creed quickly turns to a Bible study, as we go through a lot of scripture that supports the claims that are made.
We are using the catechisms put out by the CLB and the LCMS, and comparing some of the questions asked, and questions answered.
We dwell on the idea that Jesus was there at the beginning, and all things are made through him. We talk about how he is true God, and true man.
