Trinity Sunday 2015 –

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

We are now beginning the long Season after Pentecost, which will last through Thanksgiving.  So much will happen in faith communities through this season – new Sunday School seasons will begin, budgets will be created and approved, and children will leave their parents for the first time to attend Church camp.   For this Trinity Sunday we are offered the following familiar passages:  Isaiah 6:1-8, Psalm 29, Romans 8:12-17, John 3:1-17.

Isaiah 6:5And I said: “Woe is me! I am lost, for I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; yet my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts!”

I am often in a position of asking friends and coworkers to lead meditations or prayers.  There is almost a universal hesitance.  Part of this is clearly nervousness or shyness.  But I am afraid some of it is rooted in a sense of not being worthy enough.  Our passage today begins the familiar story of Isaiah accepting God’s call, and it reminds us that God can and wants to use each of us.

Wonderful God, help us to look at ourselves as though through the same eyes that you use when looking at us.  Amen.
