The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with all of you. -2 Corinthians 13:11-13
This blessing ends Paul’s second letter to the Christians in Corinth. The words he wrote have blessed countless others through the years. We will hear them again on Sunday, at the end of the second lesson.
Blessings are not wishes. They are invocations of power and authority. Blessings, in our tradition, trace the Trinity, because God is known in scripture and experience in these three aspects: creator, redeemer and sanctifier.
Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton has sent a video sermon to all congregations of the ELCA for use on Trinity Sunday. We will hear Bishop Eaton’s sermon and enjoy the thought that our brothers and sisters around the country are listening to the same sermon.
