I recently submitted an article for a Norwegian Christian nursing journal entitled Our Faithful Journey in Nursing. To prepare for this article, I spent some time researching Postmodernism in both our culture and in nursing, and its impact on our faith. The final analysis Christians need to really get Truth solidified into our hearts and mind. Also, what has added to this is I am doing a bible study with my friend and prayer partner regarding Spiritual Warfare, and one of the weapons, both offensively and defensively is truth. All of this to say, I suggested to my fellow Norway nurses and to you, to start the 2012 year with a commitment to memorize the Nicene Creed. This faith statement has such rich truth, but also historical significance for the Christian faith. There are links below with more information on the Nicene Creed.

Ibelieve in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, and of all things seen and unseen.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages; God of God,1 Light of Light, true God of true God; begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made.
Who, for us all for our salvation, came down from Heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, in accordance with the Scriptures; and ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father; 2 who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.
And I believe in one holy universal3 and apostolic Church. 4 I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
