Creed: What Christians Believe and Why
We’re used to answers popping up on a screen right in front of us. But when the questions examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life, finding the answers takes more than simply typing a few words and pushing a button. Adam Hamilton believes that powerful answers to many of our complicated questions are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs. In Creed, he explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe, and why it matters, which in turn leads readers to confront and examine their own core beliefs and go beyond reciting the Creed’s familiar words.

Evening Meditation for Christians
Often called "prayer of the heart", the quiet prayer discipline of meditation has been used by Christians for centuries to cultivate a deeper relationship with Christ who dwells in each of us.

And, we will spend time praying silently together as beginners and advanced practitioners.
