What do you believe?

With a fair amount of talk about belief statements recently shared at WPC, I had an idea for a fun summer project. How bout a WPC collage, displayed in the hallway, with the belief statements of all who choose to participate. Imagine about 80-100 statements juxtaposed with one another against the wall, with the statement, "We are the body of Christ," or something like that. It would really challenge our faith, individually and collectively, illustrate our theological diversity, and show our unity in Christ. For examples or help on the statement you could talk to someone who has recently gone through confirmation class, seminary, or check out:


  1. I would love to see that, but I have one question for you...will I be drummed out of the "Christian Corps" with some of my beliefs? I believe in God & I believe in Christ, but I also believe in reincarnation, Karma, life after death,etc. How does that mesh with our church & it's faith. I'm not sure.

  2. Great question:
    My thought could be that as all of our orthodox and not so orthodox statements are up next to one other, they would kind of blend together, and some of our distinctiveness, while present, wouldn't be so apparent for those who would judge.

    But, I've also thought that maybe just doing our journey's of faith (which still may include some of that Karma, reincarnation stuff) but would not be quite as scrutinized. We'll see if this actually comes together. You want to be the first one to submit????
