The heart behind Documented Faith 2018’s theme is “Yes & Amen" 
"For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God."
  2 Corinthians 1:20

San Miguel Mexico Creative Adventure 2019

San Miguel, a colonial-era city in Mexico’s central highlands, is know for its baroque Spanish architecture.  Fall in love with the city while exploring the city on foot, wandering its quaint cobblestone streets and colorful buildings, it has a magic that it is hard to describe. Surrounded by historical sites, the many art galleries and specialty shops.   We will be visiting several expansive food and flower markets and all the specialty shops and delicious restaurants.
 
The Casa we will be staying in is 2 blocks from the towns center “The Jardin”. The city’s historic, cobblestone center, The Jardin, which lies the Neo-Gothic church Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel, whose dramatic pink towers rise above the main plaza, where many religious celebrations and fiestas take place.   We will see weddings marching in the streets with the giant Mojiganga's (giant puppets).

The Core Purpose of Documented Faith
It is not about religion. It is about a personal relationship with Jesus. It is about developing the habit of spending time reflecting, reading, worshiping, learning and memorizing God’s word in a creative way. Documented Faith was created to remind, encourage and inspire each other to record, illustrate, document and journal our everyday moments, how God is working in us and through us, what Bible verses speak to us and how they apply to our situations, reminders and inspirational quotes and most importantly, how our relationship with Jesus and with others is growing.*There is no start date, no finish date, no right way or wrong way to do it...just the gentle, persistent encouragement in the way of an email with a verse that lands in your inbox once a week.

The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God,the Father, the Almighty maker of heaven and earth,of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father,God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven:by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of Life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

*The reference to "the holy catholic Church" in both the Nicene and Apostle's Creeds refers
to the universal church, not the denomination.
