Lectionary Leanings -- Creating the Three-in-One Edition
God of delight,
you Wisdom sings your Word
at the crossroads where humanity and divinity meet.
Invite us into your joyful being
where you know and are known
in each beginning,
in all sustenance,
in every redemption,
that we may manifest your unity
in the diverse ministries you entrust to us,
truly reflecting your triune majesty
in the faith that acts,
in the hope that does not disappoint,
and in the love that endures. Amen.
I once read about a man who wasn't crazy about getting to church on Easter but never missed Trinity Sunday. His reason? He knew that the church folks could come up with an explanation for Easter. But he always wanted to see if the preacher could explain the unexplainable Trinity.
The Lectionary texts for Trinity Sunday this year are here. In year A we get the hymn of Creation (seriously, it is so hymnic--does anybody have it set to music?), a blessing from Paul to the folks in Corinth, and the Matthean Commission to baptize in the name of Father Son and Holy Ghost.
This site has some great icons to go with the Genesis reading.
Let us know in the comments where you are heading, or at least where you think you are heading, this early in the week.
