Preacher: Rev. Ryan T. Krauss
Scripture: Matthew 28:16-20
Description: The Trinity is perhaps one of the most confusing and complicated pieces of Christian theology. According to N.T. Wrigth, however, the Trinity is also a–if not the–definitive mark of Christian theology. Because we swapped last week (Trinity Sunday on the church calendar) with a special blessing of the animals service, this week we reflect on the great mystery of God as 3-in-1.
Trinitarian theology can get kind of heavy, so I would like to suggest two key points to how believing in Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is meaningful on a daily basis. 1) Believing in the Trinity means that I can live my faith journey by letting God be God. I don’t have to…nor should I suspect I ever will!…know everything about how God operates. I can take the lesson to trust God, even in the things I do not understand. 2) The Trinity is a way to understand just how God can have personal relationship with us. God is not just a distant creator: God is also human like us (Jesus Christ) and lives in our hearts (Holy Spirit).
