But being that today is Trinity Sunday, I wanna give a shout out to the 3-in-1 God.
Recognizing that there is only one God…but that separating different aspects of this God allows us a much deeper understanding/experience of that God.
No way I could describe any of these aspects completely, and even here, it might be more helpful if all of the following words wrapped around in a giant squiggly circle or something, and moved out of your screen towards you, and drew you into them as well….but that’d be one heck of a programming feat.
To the Father -(the Giver) Who is really more “parent” and “source” than Father. All the attributes that make up a good parenting foundation, and so much more than we can put into words. The creator. The source from which all things came, and the authority by which all things are accomplished. The definition of all existence. Who IS Justice. Who’s nature is Love. Who does not “send people to Hell”, but simply gives us each freedom to respond to His Love. Whether you believe all things came into being in an actual 7 days, or you believe God used other methods over longer periods of time….whether you believe God’s gonna “rapture” us all the heck outta here, or you believe God is going to establish His new creation and do something crazy new somewhere around here……you gotta admit…God is a pretty Good source.
May our Church, and all of creation echo this God more and more…(on earth as it is in Heaven)
