Sermons & Series – Trinity Sunday
THIS IS WHAT WE ARE CURRENTLY DISCUSSING ON SUNDAY MORNINGS
Text: John 3:1-17
Last week was Pentecost Sunday. We recognized the Holy Spirit entering into the disciples. This week we see that God is Father/Mother, Jesus and Holy Spirit. 3 in 1. Together these three are known as the Holy Trinity. The Trinity is the perfect example of love, and the Trinity points to the communal relationship we are meant to have with God and with each other.
There is a word for that tries to capture what the Holy Trinity is about. That word is perichoresis. Peri, which means “around,” and chorein, which means “to give way” or “to make room.” It is often thought of circle with people dancing around and making room for the other. We look at that dance as a celebration with a feast that is held in the Father's/God's house. A dancing that encourages ones identity that is but is interwoven with God and all of God's aspects.
For your reflection:
- Where do you see that dance in this passage?
- Write down some ways you can join in the intimate and communal dance of the Trinity.
