In the name of the most Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
Sometimes, you’ll hear preachers lament about having to preach on Trinity Sunday. After all, it is the only Sunday of the Church year in which we focus on a doctrine instead of an event. And it doesn’t help that there is no direct reference to the Trinity anywhere in Scripture. But that doesn’t mean that today’s readings aren’t important. Sometimes the doctrine of the Trinity is glossed over and people will wonder “what difference does it make to me when I have cancer that God is three-in-one?” or “how does the Trinity affect my day to day life?” And these are valid and faithful questions.
