Activity 4: Fact Sheet (5 minutes), Workshop 12: Christianity 2

In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

Description of Activity

Redistribute the Christianity Fact Sheet from Workshop 11. What in today's workshop illustrates how Christianity is a source for our living faith today? Review the seven Principles. Are any of the statements in the Principles in line with Christian theology or in conflict with it? Read Handout 3, Nicene Creed. Explain that this profession of faith, in slightly different forms, is the creed Catholic and many Protestant Christians recite and believe. If you have engaged with a Christian community in worship, ask if participants remember the reciting of the creed. These beliefs were the result of the council of Nicea, 325 CE. Remind youth that it was with this same council that Unitarians became heretics because of their disbelief in the Trinity. Answer any remaining questions about Christianity or, if you cannot answer immediately, seek answers for the next workshop.

If you will be engaging with a Protestant community, give participants any information they need.
