Prayer
Dear God, on this Trinity Sunday, we remember Your wondrous and mysterious nature as one God in three persons. Even as we confess this truth and believe it, we admit that we cannot fully grasp it. It exceeds our comprehension and leads us to wonderment.
All praise be to You, God the Father, for Your love that pursues us and runs to welcome us home to You.
All praise be to You, God the Son, for Your faithfulness in giving Your life for us and our salvation.
All praise be to You, God the Spirit, for dwelling within and among us, so that we might be Your people.
All praise be to You, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, for Your glory and grace!

Postscript

The Gloria Patri

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world with out end.
Amen.
Amen.

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
