The Trinity is best understood in the different ways God relates to us both in the past and present. God the Father reminds of God’s power as creator and God’s care for us as a loving Father that provides for us. God the Son came to be with us in the person of Jesus Christ as our brother. God the Son makes God’s love for us personal and real as well as giving us an example to follow. God the Spirit dwells in our hearts inspiring and nudging us through our best and deepest desires and correcting us through our conscience. May we grow in our relationship with God, Father, Son and Spirit and allow this relationship to reassure, guide and inspire us.
Please Welcome Fr. Chrysostom, a priest originally from Burma but who has ministered in our diocese for the last 20+ years. Fr. Chrysostom is here as part of the Diocesan Plan for Missionary Cooperation. His community is one the diocese helps to support through our stewardship gifts each week. Hopefully, he will be able to give you a taste of the work his community is doing in Burma. We do not have a special collection for the missions this Sunday as the diocese uses part of our stewardship tithe to the diocese to support the missions. However, I trust you will give Fr. Chrysostom the support of a warm welcome and your prayers.
Even though I am gone to spend some time with my family this weekend, I will be back on Tuesday evening. So I will be available during this week.
