Trinity Sunday emphasizes the mystery and power of the triune God, which marks the acknowledgment that all three persons of the Trinity exist together eternally. Our Christian identity is given to us as we are baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19). At its core, our worship is an expression of the unity and common purpose of the church, which Jesus prayed would reflect the unity between himself and God (John 17:20-21).
Unlike other special services which are tied to specific events, this celebration relates to a doctrine about God’s being.
Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon “God-In-A-Box” based on Acts 10:1-48:
J.B. Phillips in his 1961 book, Your God is Too Small, exposes our inadequate conceptions of God – our attempts to shove God-In-A-Box. We have been trying to do that for a very long time – to shove God into our theological box, to make God suit our assumptions, to constrain God to fit the capacity of our logic. Scripture reminds us that God’s ways are bigger than our ways.
Following the service we invite you to join us in the Chalice Room, next to the Sanctuary for fellowship.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
