June 16, 2019 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

Today we honor the Holy Trinity that brings together all the mysteries that we have celebrated during the seasons of Lent and Easter; the creative, saving and sanctifying work of God that not only freed us from the powers of sin and death, but which also unites us as a community of Faith- – – the Church.
The astounding truth about the Trinity is that it is the perfect realization of perfect love. God’s secret is; there is “I and Thou” without “Mine and Thine”. The Father is not the Son; the Son is not the Father; the Holy Spirit is neither the Father nor the Son. Each is a real person, and still there is no “Mine and Thine” no egoism. The Father gives to the Son literally all that He Himself has, all that makes Him God, all that makes Him Love. The Son, perfect image of the Father, loves the Father to selfless perfection and Son love each other, that love is a person. The love is the Holy Spirit.
Let us take time to pray; God, I believe that you are the Farther, Son and Holy Spirit. Help me to know you in a more personal way!
As a final point not to overlook that today, Father’s Day, that we may find a moment to honor those who we acknowledge as our fathers, grandfathers, godfathers, and step fathers.
May we be open to the love and forgiveness seen through the mystery of the Holy Trinity.
