Prayer of the Day
Almighty Creator and ever-living God: we worship your glory, eternal Three-in-One, and we praise your power, majestic One-in-Three. Keep us steadfast in this faith, defend us in all adversity, and bring us at last into your presence, where you live in endless joy and love, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Scripture readings
Genesis 1:1--2:4a
Psalm 8:1-9
2 Corinthians 13:11-13
Matthew 28:16-20


 "Bad Math, Good News"
Matthew 28:16-20; 2 Corinthians 13:11-13
The wind moves and God speaks creation into being. The Word is spoken again in the Incarnation, the Son sent by the Father to redeem creation. The risen Christ speaks, sending his friends out with authority to every corner of the world. The early Church hears words of peace and love, drawing them out of discord and into communion. It would be a mistake on this Trinity Sunday to try to explain how God is triune. Instead, we hear the incarnate Word speak to us: go into the world with power, speaking peace and love, creating communion between people as they are caught up in the life of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
