Who ARE God?

Talking about the Triune God poses more than just grammar challenges!  How do we wrap our heads around the powerful mystery that God is One and – at the same time – three, distinct persons: God the Creator, Christ the Redeemer, and the Holy Spirit (whom, we learned last week on Pentecost Sunday, does all sorts of thigs for us)?  More importantly, how do we wrap our hearts around it?

This Sunday is Trinity Sunday, and we’ll be taking time to ponder that God is – at God’s very essence – relationship.  That’s who God is. And, that’s the way God was from the very beginning. That’s the way God will be into eternity. Relationship.  And, God is calling us into relationship… with God and each other.

Now, we all know that relationships aren’t easy.  But, being in relationship is not only the way we were created, it’s the way we grow.  And, it sure seems like we’re ripe and ready for growth!

Hope to see you on Sunday to learn more!

In Faith,

Pastor Ben
