When Is It Creedal?
It's from 2004 and it's here: http://tinyurl.com/q66bj

It's actually a great conversation, and given that the public conversation on choice is heating up a lot lately, look to the Reverend Mr. Sinkford to be making a lot more announcements, pronouncements and issuing statements that begin, "we believe."
My personal take is that unless a statement is being used in a congregational setting as a theological test for membership, it's not a creed. Even if it begins, "We believe," it's not strictly a creed (although I'm hip to the Latin thing with "credo"). That's not to say that I discount Chalice Chick and others' objections, I just don't think they're quite on the mark, although close to it.
All I can say is, when I'm President of the UUA I'm hiring Fausto to be my official statement checker. Day-ang.
