The Inseparable Three
Church News | Sunday, 16 June 2019 |
In her address at this morning’s 10.30am service, Revd Julie said that all priests struggle with trying to explain the Holy Trinity for not only is it inexplicable but it is beyond human understanding, however, she said she would try to break down the picture she had put on the front of the notice sheet showing us that the Father is not the Son, the Son is not the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit is not the Father, however God is central showing that God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit…
Although God is always (or usually) referred to as a man, Revd Julie believes you cannot categorise God and rather than God being referred to as man or woman she believes he is LOVE. Our creator God sent his love (Jesus) to earth, a man who shared God’s divine nature. Teaching us that it is that same love that gives us hope through Jesus’ death and resurrection. God also sent us His Holy Spirit the breath or essence of love which assures us that he is always with us, no matter where we are or what we are doing, we are caught in the everlasting circle of God’s love.
