The widest circle
It’s Trinity Sunday, a day that I like to think about how our God is a God of relationship, and more all-encompassing than human beings will ever be able to understand. God, the Creator of all could have stopped at coming to us as Jesus, God with skin on, but no — She and He also appears to us as God, the Holy and Creative Spirit. Together, the three form a wide circle and invite us all in to their dance. They show us the love and inclusiveness that we are all called to offer to one another.
Imagine, for a moment, a more inclusive world — one in which everyone is recognized and treated as a cherished child of God no matter their age, ability, culture, faith, gender, race, or socio-economic status. That’s exactly the kind of circle we are called to create by the way we welcome one another and live together.
Jean Vanier understands this, and in his message to Canada for its sequicentennial (150th anniversary celebrations) this year, he offers a wonderful message about creating a more human society where everyone belongs. I love this man, and I’m guessing he could tell us more about the Trinity than most Trinity Sunday sermons ever will. Have a listen to his message, and enjoy…
“You are more beautiful than you dare imagine…”
Happy Trinity Sunday!
