Trinity Sunday

Most Blessed Trinity,
the Lover, the Beloved and the Love
that exists between them:
May we so share in your divine dance,
that our lives may be forever entwined with yours.
both now and forever. Amen

St. Augustine, 4th century

I delight in the names listed in Augustine's prayer.
Fred Beuchner gave us: God beyond us, God among us, God between us.*
The New Zealand Prayer Book: Earth Maker, Pain Bearer, Life Giver*
"What words would you use to describe the mystery,
the holy ground where God happens in your life?"*

*these thoughts & the question were taken from
E. Bloch's+ sermon on The Holy Trinity, 6/7/09
St. Paul's, Port Townsend
