Trinity Sunday: The God Who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Series: Trinity Sunday 2023
Speaker: Derek Vreeland
The Trinity is not a mathematical problem to be solved but a mystery to be explored. Who is this God who is a holy community of persons? We’re invited to explore this mystery from the moment of our baptism. Jesus said we are to make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. When we were baptized, we were baptized into the name of the God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God doesn’t have a number. God has a name. We normally give numbers to things and we give names to people. Names bestow dignity and indicate the capacity for relationship. The God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is not a series of numbers to be counted, quantified, or programmed. God is personal, knowable, and relatable because God has a name. And because we were created in that image, the image of a holy community, we were created for other people.
