Dancing to the Apostle's Creed--DeYoung on Lord's Day 9

Besides being ancient, ecumenical (in the good sense), and biblical, the Apostles’ Creed is catchy. I’m not sure if you can dance to it (haven’t tried), but it does have a cadence that makes congregational recitation intuitively doable. The first line rolls off the tongue nicely: “I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.” But behind the familiar language and rhythm, there are a number of important theological points to be made.
