I invite you to write your own credo statement. Below are resources that will help you.
- Be brief! 300-500 words maximum.
- State what you DO believe, not what you don’t believe.
- Before you begin, reflect on these questions.
- What have you learned about your own journey?
- What have you learned about your spiritual maturity?
- How does spiritual practice inform your ideas and beliefs?
- How does your leadership role inform your ideas and beliefs?
- What other questions are you seeking to answer?
- If you knew your credo would be shared with (the whole congregation), (your family), (your minister), (your children), (your co-workers), how might that change what you write?
