This Sunday we celebrate Trinity Sunday. Trinity Sunday points to the mystery that is God not in one person, but in three. In the Trinity we discover God who is the Creator of all, but we also remember the incarnational God in Jesus Christ who lived among us, while also treasuring God the Spirit, the Comforter, sent to sustain us, God's beloved, through time. Creator, Son, and Sustaining Spirit. Or, as the names that are upheld through all Christian traditions baptizing in the name of the One God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
This Sunday as we step into the mystery, we will engage scriptures that point to God's existence before the creation of the world, and invites us to be grafted into that same Three-in-One on the vine that sustain God's people.
Not the "easiest" of concepts, but I pray that our dive into Trinity Sunday will be one that gives life, and gives it more abundantly.
"Trinity Sunday" by Malcolm Guite
In the Beginning, not in time or space,
But in the quick before both space and time,
In Life, in Love, in co-inherent Grace,
In three in one and one in three, in rhyme,
In music, in the whole creation story,
In His own image, His imagination,
The Triune Poet makes us for His glory,
And makes us each the other’s inspiration.
He calls us out of darkness, chaos, chance,
To improvise a music of our own,
To sing the chord that calls us to the dance,
Three notes resounding from a single tone,
To sing the End in whom we all begin;
Our God beyond, beside us and within.
