There are so many churches now in which the Creeds are never heard other than at Presbytery services of ordination and induction. Falconer simply tells the story of the introduction and use of the Apostles’ Creed at every service of worship in one Scottish parish (Trinity Coatdyke) in the early years of the 20th century during the ministry of his predecessor there. It was used not only in worship but in every conceivable area of the congregation’s life. In addition to telling the story, Falconer includes extracts from written submissions given to him by members of the congregation which amply illustrate the significance of the Creed for them and for the development of their faith. It is a spare but informative and deeply appreciative piece of writing.
