In the Church of Scotland, this past week has seen our General Assembly take place in Edinburgh, a week long flurry of debates, deliberations and determination.
During the week, we commemorated the decision of the Assembly 50 years ago to permit women to be ordained to Ministry of word and Sacrament. It was a week, as you might imagine, of highs and lows, of soaring hope and crushing disappointment, a week when, however the church, as an institution, struggles, we are reminded of our call to serve an unfathomable God, whose love and mercy and wisdom knows no end, a God who is Holy, Holy, Holy!
This Trinity Sunday, how will you preach the good news of that God? Will you be attempting to “explain” the Trinity? Will you be sharing stories of the week just gone, of the glimpses you have seen of God in crowds and in individuals? Will you be celebrating with the folk you are called to serve or mourning with them, or both?
There is discussion of this week’s RCL texts here.
We’d love to hear how you are proclaiming the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in your peculiar context this week. Join us and share in the comments your joys and struggles. Your opening phrase might be the one that just helps another to get started or to wrap things up! So share what you have and ask for what you need as we fulfil our calling to preach the word this week.
