This week we celebrate the Trinity. This is one of the deepest mysteries of the Christian faith. As you read the Scriptures for this week I encourage you to search for glimpses of the Trinity in each one.

It must be acknowledged that the theology about the Trinity wasn’t fully expressed until after Scripture was written. The doctrine of the Trinity is not some esoteric or merely philosophical theology. The doctrine of the Trinity came to expression as Christians attempted to put into words their experience of God in Scripture, the sacraments and everyday life. The Trinity explains best both what Scripture teaches and the earliest Christians experienced.

The Trinity can be described but not explained. The interrelationship of God the Father, Son and Spirit is beyond our comprehension but not our experience.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. – 2 Cor 13:14
