  1. Isn’t it more spiritually centering to ask ourselves these probing questions rather than recite creeds?

  2. Why is it either creeds or these types if queries? Creeds remind us of who God is, what has done, is doing, and will do in our own lives. The queries help us make sense of this in our day-to-day living. It goes back tp the age-old tension between faith and works. They should be in a constant dance with one another. When one is missing or weak, we get out of balance.

  3. I’d love to see a list of the classic or most meaningful queries. Anyone have a link or source?
