Graphic for Affirmation of Faith
We use different versions of creeds on a regular basis for our service. I've been using some form of a slide that has a picture of a person praying and "I Believe" or "We Believe" on it, but my supply is limited, and I'm not good at creating graphics from scratch. Does anyone have any ideas of other things I could use? I'd like to find something the represents the idea without using the words. We do too much of that already...
For example, this week we are using "The Korean Creed". Some weeks we'll use the Apostles Creed. It varies each week.
Any thoughts would be appreciated...
What comes to my mind is rocks, as in these beliefs are the solid foundation on which our faith is build. More modern idea along the same lines would be a construction scene.
You're right about the overuse of words. Use pictures and allow the Holy Spirit to provide the meaning and insight behind them, rather than trying to explain things and thus limiting the Spirit's work. Of course, that means you have to choose the image you use bathed in prayer.
We only say one of the affirmations of faith (followed by the Gloria Patri) at our small traditional service and it normally follows our opening hymn. I purposefully use a cross (nothing fancy or modern; perhaps a celtic one or a stained glass image of Christ) or a "glorious" sunrise background to set it apart from the other slides used during the service. I usually use that same image for the Doxology.
I also tend to stay with that background for a number of services so that it becomes a cue for the older folks to follow, and also to set it apart (if that makes sense).
Cheers - ST
