From the Sunday, May 26, 2013 regional service, by Rev'd Elizabeth Mathers.
So, Trinity Sunday. A day for celebration of the community and the creativity that lie at the heart of God - good things to celebrate as we gather for our fifth annual deanery worship.
The Trinity is, of course, a mystery to us; the Godhead is hidden from our sight. But rather than approach it, as we might, as a theological puzzle - an intellectual wrestling with the concept of Three Persons and One God, or as an abstraction - something far removed from our daily life, I'd like to invite us to consider the Trinity as a gift that's offered to us to reflect on and live into, relationally and creatively, that draws us deeper into life as God's beloved daughters and sons, whom Jesus calls friends, and who are enlivened by the Spirit's breathing into us.
