June 16, 2019: Trinity Sunday
Preaching for Trinity Sunday, Lynn Cooper offers a reflection on entering more deeply into the mystery of the Trinity:
"My friends, this Trinity Sunday, I invite you to dwell in this reframing of mystery – the forever understanding –and marinate in one or two of these provocations: How might unity in multiplicity inspire us to be in solidarity with people of other faiths or no faith? In the spirit of the liturgical year, which calls us to re-encounter our tradition and story in cycles, how have joy and sorrow from your past year redefined your relationship to the Trinity? How might we use the Trinity as a way to deepen our work for justice, honoring difference and diversity as holy? And lastly, how might we make space to listen to and carouse with the Spirit, allowing everyday sacramental moments to break open our faith so we may remember, once again—in body and spirit—that God is a verb?"
