This coming Sunday is Holy Trinity Sunday when we remember God’s “three-in-one” nature as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Like the Incarnation of Jesus or Creation out of Nothing, the Holy Trinity is one of the great mysteries of our faith. The readings for this Sunday are: Psalm 8; Proverbs 8:1-4,22-36; Acts 2:22-36; and John 8:48-59.
When you look up at the night sky on a clear summer evening what do you see? What King David saw, according to Psalm 8, made him feel small. “What is man that you are mindful of him?” But our God delights in that which is small. He loves people who are small, weak, powerless. He cares about the “small” and everyday problems of your life that don’t make national news. Some evening this week take a moment to step outside, look up and admire the view. As you do, ponder this mystery – that the same God who created the vast expanses of outer space and countless galaxies of stars also made you. And he calls you the crown of his creation.
