11 June – Trinity Sunday –

Sit back a minute and reflect:  What are human beings? Are they not unimaginably small specs on a miniscule pale blue dot (Paul Sagan), creatures that each live for an infinitesimally short time in a universe that is billions of years old?  As the Psalm says:  “What are mortals that you should be mindful of them; mere human beings that you should seek them out?” But God our creator loves us, we are precious in his sight and honoured.   And He desires nothing more than for us to love Him back.

And so, to help us see more clearly, God came to live among us in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, who told us that we may regard God as our Father, and who breathes His own Spirit into each one of us in order to lead us into all truth.

And with the help of the Holy Spirit, each human being can be a light- and love-bearer in our world, which is so desperately in need of light and love.
