Dear *|FIRSTNAME|*,

This Sunday is Trinity Sunday, a final blast before we swoop down into the everyday “ordinary” life of faith for a few months in our church calendar. If you thought Pentecost was out there, try God, three in one, a Triune God yet monotheistic – One God. Far from being a dry and dusty dogma, God as three persons invites us to delve into the beauty of the relationships between God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit. In fact, we might discover that we are living in these relationships more than we realise!

This prayer from the Iona Community hints at how we relate to God, as Creator / Father, man /Son and Holy Spirit. I invite you to use this prayer to help you worship God and do join us on Sunday to find out more.

We have heard about you,
God of all power.
You made the world out of kindness,
Creating order out of confusion;
You made each one of us in your own image;
Your fingerprint is on every soul
So we praise you.
We praise and worship you.

We have heard about you,
Jesus Christ:
The carpenter who left his tools and trade;
The poor man who made others rich;
The healer who let himself be wounded;
The criminal on whom the soldiers spat
Not knowing they were fouling the face of God;
The saviour who died and rose again.
So we praise you
We praise and worship you.

We have heard about you, 
Holy Spirit.
You broke the bonds of every race and nation,
To let God speak in every tongue;
You made disciples drunk with grace;
You converted souls and emptied pockets;
You showed how love made all things new
And opened the doors to change and freedom.
So we praise you.
We praise and worship you.
