I’m trying like heck to avoid writing two worship bulletins, so I guess I’d better muse homiletically instead.
As others have noted, this week is the celebration of Trinity Sunday, in my opinion a peculiar celebration, since it is all about an idea which does not appear in Scripture. Nevertheless, it appears on church calendars everywhere.
I will be concentrating on Paul’s letter to the Church in Rome this week. This text to me sounds more like an Advent text than one to visit right before Ordinary Time. In the beginning of the carefree days of summer, who wants to think about the groaning of all creation? Many folk in our churches will have graduations, weddings, and family vacations on their minds, not Paul’s “sufferings of the present time”.
What is our responsibility to our church community at this time? I’m seriously considering switching to an every-other-year schedule for the Trinity. I wonder if anyone would even miss it. I keep thinking about a question that PCIT posed earlier this week. What will you do with this whole concept of Trinity Sunday? And if not Trinity Sunday, then what?
What are you musing this week?
