Tokens of Trust. An Introduction to Christian Belief

In this six part series, we engaged the classic statements of our Christian faith — the Nicene and Apostles Creed — from the perspectives of the 21st century. In particular, we tried to understand how many tenets of our faith flow naturally from the fundamental belief that the Maker of Heaven and Earth is fully worthy of our trust.

The series followed the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan William's book Tokens of Trust, An Introduction to Christian Belief. Each session corresponds to one chapter in the book.

Also see our series on the Creed based on Luke Timothy Johnson's book, The Creed. What Christians Believe and Why It Matters, and our series on the Creed based on Hans K√ľng's book Credo. The Apostles' Creed Explained for Today

Presentations were by David Monyak.
