Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice? (Proverbs 8:1). Perhaps as we ponder the readings, and what to say to our congregations on Trinity Sunday we are hoping that wisdom will indeed strike us and understanding will prevail? Perhaps we have chosen other readings and another focus for this Sunday, a great way to avoid the mystery of the Trinity - of three in one and one in three - which may be the Christian equivalent to the Buddhist Koan, "What is the sound of one hand clapping?" Barbara Brown Taylor attempted this in a reflection offered in this bookHome By Another Way called "Three Hands Clapping".
So, today, as you prepare your offering for tomorrow are you thinking along the lines of One Hand Clapping or Three Hands Clapping? Or are you going in an entirely different direction?
What ever direction you are going in, one, three, or otherwise, we are here to journey with you. Share your ideas, your frustrations, your hopes, and we'll be here with you. Maybe there are ideas to share around? At the very least we have coffee, tea, and lots of excellent treats! Here, let me give you a hand as you pull up a chair.
