Trinity Sunday - June 19, 2011

This coming Sunday we consider the fact that God has revealed himself to us as God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, one God eternally existing in three Persons, equal in divinity but distinguished in role or function. This belief is firmly taught in scripture, taught by the early church and affirmed in the Nicene Creed. Our readings are

Isaiah 40.12-17,27-31
Psalm 8
2 Corinthians 13.11-13
Matthew 28.16-20

In all the talks and books I have come across about the Trinity, perhaps the best was a talk given by Dr Edith Humphrey at the Anglican Essentials conference. She has also written a book called Ecstacy and Intimacy. Google her.
