The Lord appeared to Abraham by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day. He looked up and saw three people standing near him…Genesis 18:1-2
This weekend is Trinity Sunday.
Many of you may be thinking, “Um…. ok…. so?”
Well, this is one of those liturgical Sundays that I absolutely love. Especially because, in this case, I get the chance to talk about one of my favorite theological topics: the Trinity.
And that is just what we are going to do on Sunday, as we gather in person for the first time since the beginning of March.
It is fitting that we should regather on Trinity Sunday, because it is the beginning of a new season in the church calendar. This is the longest season in the church year and will last all the way until our New Year’s Eve celebration on Christ the King (close to Thanksgiving). The season we begin on Sunday is the one that celebrates how God turns our ordinary lives into extraordinary signs of God’s gracious presence.
Here we get a chance to get our focus framed again so that we may serve God well.
Honestly, knowing who our God is, in God’s trinitarian form, has many important connections to our own lives and walks of faith. Knowing that our God lives in perfect community gives us wisdom as we walk together. Understanding that our God cares about our relationships gives us guidance of how to care for one another. And realizing that our God made every human in the image of the trinitarian form, well, that puts the whole world into a whole new perspective.
We hope to see those who feel comfortable at worship in person and the rest of you on Facebook live as we share our service together. May peace be with you all.
Blessings, Pastor Janie
