Grace: It's Our Way of Life

As Episcopal Christians we
Worship at home daily and together weekly;
Study the Scriptures, our tradition, and what it means to be a disciple today;
Serve our families, our parish, and our world in the name of Christ.

Everything we do is done with an ethic of Welcome
because we are only here by Grace.

Sermon, Trinity Sunday, Year C, 26 May 2013 - Walking through the Trinitarian Knot

A walk into the knot of a Trinitarian faith.  Every statement of faith borders on heresy.  To say anything important is to mis-say something.  So I want to apologize for the places in this sermon where in trying to articulate the faith, I may have overstepped the Orthodox knot.  The footnotes for this sermon would take up books.  So take time to listen and study and ask questions.  The sermon is meant to spur thought, not end it. 

Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31
Psalm 8
Romans 5:1-5
John 16:12-15

The Collect

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
