Greetings from the season of Pentecost in Chuckatuck. After last Sunday and the visit from Bishop Wright this week was almost anticlimactic. Yet, every time we come together for worship it is a blessing. This past week, while a little busy was a nice break from the preparations for the Anniversary celebration last week. Lots of sun out today and true summer is lurking around the corner. It was hard to give the Trinity a go in today’s sermon but… I think it was okay.
In worship we celebrated the Trinity Sunday – a day where we are invited to contemplate the nature of God: three-in-one and one-in-three. On the one hand I “violated” my promise to not mention big theological terms in my sermons I shared three today: perichoresis, hypostatic union, and filioque. I didn’t define them but used them as a means to remind us that the words we use about God serve to remind us of the depth and unknowable nature of God. God, in creation, reminds us that in the ups and downs of life we are never alone and God is always with us. That is the celebration of the Trinity that makes a difference.
