SWEET LORRAINE OF AUSCHWITZ TODAY • INDIANA HISTORICAL SOCIETY With the surge in antisemitic incidents over the past few months, on top of the alarmingly steady increase in anti-Jewish rhetoric and violence over the past several years, it is more important than ever that the community-at-large raise its collective voice to stand up and speak out in the face of 21st century antisemitism.

Rob Fuquay Leader: Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! All: Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! Leader: For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. All: In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. Leader: The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.

Kevin Davis Leader: Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is the one true church, apostolic and universal, whose holy faith let us now declare: All: We believe in the one God, maker and ruler of all things, the source of all goodness and beauty, all truth and love. We believe in Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, our teacher, example, and Redeemer, the Savior of the world. We believe in the Holy Spirit, God present with us for guidance, for comfort, and for strength. We believe in the forgiveness of sins, in the life of love and prayer, and in grace equal to every need. We believe in the Word of God contained in the Old and New Testaments as the sufficient

rule both of faith and of practice. We believe in the Church as the fellowship, for worship and for service, of all who are united to the living Lord. We believe in the kingdom of God as the divine rule in human society, in the final triumph of righteousness, and in the life everlasting. Amen.
