Anne Marie Rondeau Jamieson
My name is Anne Marie Jamieson and my husband and I are continuing our education at Calvin Theological Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI. Travis is working towards his Masters of Divinity and I am pursuing a Master of Theological Studies. I am a mother and my poetry stems heavily from my experiences of motherhood and grief: the pressures, sorrows, and joys experienced with this human experience. I am passionate about theology, and am particularly interested in Ecclesiology and Practical Theology.
I am a military brat, a “weak” introvert, and I love spending time with my husband and two year old daughter each day. Some of my interests include reading in a comfy chair, talking to my husband about theology, interior design, going out to fun local restaurants, watching stand-up comedy, singing and dancing with my daughter, painting, and playing guitar.
Statement of Faith
I write poetry to express myself and to process the joys and sorrows of my life. For those who desire to understand my theological and world-view disposition, I adhere and submit to the Orthodox and Ecumenical Christian Creeds of the Church. Three that you can read more in depth are The Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Apostles Creed. For a short summation of the historic Christian faith, below is written the Apostles Creed.
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
