So here is a little denominational humor, which you can switch around according to your denominational preferences.
Once there were two men who had been fast boyhood friends, and they remained close friends throughout the course of their lives. But as it happened, they grew up on two sides of a doctrinal division, that division being the question of infant baptism. One of them was a Presbyterian and the other one was a Baptist. Other than that, they were peas in a pod. Their families had even vacationed together once. Their kids went to the same Christian schools, and some of them were becoming fast friends. Their wives were good friends also, and everything seemed wonderful because it was wonderful.
Very early on, these two men had formed the habit of getting together for lunch once a week, come rain, come weather. They did this for years, and the only thing that happened was that they grew ever closer.
Another good thing about their friendship is that it didn’t have any “no fly” zones in it. In other words, it was not that they had to avoid certain doctrinal topics. They could talk about them freely, and each of them could have given a very accurate portrayal of their friend’s position. In short, once the fact of the disagreement is assumed, they conducted themselves admirably in every way.
One day, as their lunch was concluding, they were getting up to leave the restaurant, and the Baptist said to the Presbyterian, “Friend, I am kind of disappointed in you. We have been having lunch for many years, and here you are, still baptizing babies. Can you explain that?”
His friend scratched his beard thoughtful. “Well, I hadn’t given that much thought. But now’s that you mention it, I would say it is because we only have lunch once a week, and I read my Bible every day.”

The Faith Once Delivered
This small book contains a number of notes, comments, and observations on the Apostles’ Creed. The Creed is a model of brevity, but it is amazing how much truth has been compressed in so small a statement. This book is designed to help the average believers unpack some of its riches.
