There are a few Sundays repeated every liturgical year. Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and Transfiguration, to name a few. Today is another one, namely, Trinity Sunday.
I mention, somewhat jokingly, in at least one of the sermons that if there wasn’t a Trinity Sunday no one would preach on it. Why?
The simple answer? the Trinity is hard to understand. In this case, “hard” equals impossible. The Trinity is fundamentally beyond human beings’ understanding. The nice thing is, once you admit and accept the impossibilities of the Trinity you can then think about the parts we can understand. My inability to fully understand the Trinity no more means I can get nothing of value from it than my inability to fully understand eternity.
One of the things I was hoping to achieve in these sermons is to open our eyes to how the Trinity positively informs our understanding and experience of God. As always, let me know how I did.
